Life hacks

Recently I've learned

One persons no is another persons yes
If it doesn't exist yet, create it
Know your worth
Draw healthy boundaries
Know when to persist
Know when to move on

Don't chase people who want to leave,
they make room for the right ones to enter
Let go gracefully

"No one would harm another human being unless they were confused. Fear is the cause of all confusion." - Byron Katie

I only have room for love, and for the ones who love me back.

Last night

The sudden summer storm outside feels like it's trying to tell me something.
Like something is about to happen.
The book I am reading is one of the best I've read in years, and I'm thinking and feeling in poetry.
When he comes home from work, he looks at me in a way that makes me feel he really sees me.
Sees into me. More so than he has in awhile.
It's been a busy time, and now I've been seen.
"My heart is going to crack wide open" I think.
It's almost too much. My eyes fill with tears. I pull away.
Later there is a moment nearly silent, except for the storm where slightly suspended,
I feel myself expand into one with everything,
And I breath in sync with all that is.
Fleetingly tapped into truth.
As we're falling asleep, I think about different versions of us that no longer exist.
How do we say goodbye? How do we make peace we'll never know them again?
How soon this version of us will no longer exist.
We're constantly looking back on "the best days of our lives."
People live in a state of perpetual perfection, yet we're always wanting something different.

Where to have a summer BBQ - INDOORS!

The last few weeks it's been over 100 degrees, and breaking records as some of the hottest weather we've had in years! If you need to escape the heat for an evening, but still want to do something that feels like summer, check out the new BBQ menu that just launched at Rodizio Grill in Trolley Square!

I got to try it out last night, and I was pleasantly surprised. I only say surprised because I am not a big meat eater, and I assumed Rodizio Grill wouldn't be very vegetarian (I do eat chicken) friendly. Well guess what? I was wrong! 

We had unlimited access to the salad bar, which was huge. Salads, pastas, breads, and more. I had two giant plates. And while they did bring around meat options of all kinds, there were many types of  chicken I was able to eat. I left completely stuffed! 

The staff was so nice, and a lot of fun. 

My gorgeous actress friend Jaci was my date for the night, check her out HERE.

Got to dine with some of my favorite bloggers, see old friends, and meet new ones!

Check out Sarah Tyau of Our Life is Beautiful, and Michelle Petersen of The Mumsy Blog!

I always love getting to see Michelle of Enjoy Utah! 

And Derek, you are the best! 

(Huge thanks to Ashlee Hille for the fantastic photos and event!)

And the rabanada (a warm cinnamon pastry with a creamy center, served with vanilla ice cream and laced with caramel sauce) pretty much changed my life. I mean, just look. 

Are you hungry yet?
