I'm into chakras, essential oils, growing plants, eating real food, being a grandma, following Jesus, and creating a beautiful life. I like to write about random things including real life issues and how to process through and deal with the messy and unsettling stuff that happens in life. I believe that life is too short not to live happy! I choose to dwell in bliss and bask in love and light. Welcome to my raw, real, bright colorful world!

Hey, I'm Connie.

I love chai tea. But I’m not crazy about the sugar in it, or the price of it. Or going out to get it. So I decided to figure out how to make a healthier version of it at home. Here’s the recipe I came up with and everyone who’s tried it thinks I’ve nailed […]

This morning I woke up before dawn and laid in bed noticing the quiet and stillness of the morning. The air felt cool and the night seemed light, especially for a new moon. When I looked out the window I discovered it was because everything was covered with a thick blanket of freshly fallen snow. […]

When Craig told me he was leaving it was a curve ball I didn’t see coming. Once I got through the initial blast of shock, I determined to be positive and let go gracefully. But as I settled into the reality of my situation I resisted letting go, and doggedly clung to all that was […]

It’s no secret that I’m not a fan of cold weather and winter but since I do live in Utah and we have another strong month of winter ahead, I’m choosing to see the positives and make the most of it. One of my favorite things about this season is it’s the perfect weather for soup. […]

I used to think being rich was all about having a lot of money. But as I’ve grown older I’ve come to know that being rich is much more about how you feel than what’s in your bank account. A couple of years ago I was really really sick and I realized how precious good […]

  When I was 32 I snapped. My therapist called it an emotional breakdown. I didn’t see it coming because it was brought on gradually and caused by a lifetime of mounting frustration and unhappiness. There were people in my life who saw I had a problem and said I needed help. I denied it, […]

Recently my son Preston finished a third deployment and got a police escort from the freeway exit to his house. Normally this sort of thing happens during the day and it involves both lights and sirens, but since his flight got in after midnight it was a very quiet affair. As I followed the procession […]

WHEN SHOWING UP MATTERS

Last week my friend Amy and I went camping near Capitol Reef and near the visitors center, by the creek that runs alongside the Fruita campground, we found this amazing old tree. I’ve always been fascinated by trees. They call out to me and draw me to them and I think they’re all beautiful and […]
