This morning I listened to Beene Brown talking with Oprah about her new book Rising Strong. Have you read it? I’ve read Daring Greatly and this new one sounds like a good read too. I have been working for a while now to move away from being defined by my stories but when you have a lot of big stories it takes time and learning how to get beyond everything. I just started doing morning pages (from The Artist’s Way) as another tool to get beyond the stories
Thought I was going to get stuck in this little cave 😂😓
You know that tall peak in the backdrop of all the Machu Picchu photos that you see? That is Huayna Picchu, and welcome to the treacherous climb up and down its beautiful path. I was surprised to see that many tourists were NOT prepared (proper shoes, good athletic clothes, etc). I couldn’t have imagined doing this hike in sandals! And y'all, I almost got stuck in that tiny cave fo real.
You have to register for Huayna Picchu⛰ months in advance (seriously) in order to get a permit for hiking it. We had a beautiful view of Machu Picchu at the top and one of my best friends was actually proposed to at the top of the peak! She said no (jk) 🎶 Music from a street musician we met in Peru

The landscape changes quickly in the south-east mountains of Peru. Our first experiences with the landscape introduced us to lush green areas with trees and plants, followed by rocky areas with no trees, that reminded me of areas I have seen in Ireland. Then amazing grassy plains with cliff faces such as these... Peru truly has a different landscape for every day of your hike ❤️⛰ missing this place a lot right now.
(alpacas for scale 😉)

Trays are an easy way to container clutter on the counters. Use them to hold everything you need to get ready in the morning, and your counter won't look cluttered because everything has a home!⠀
The first thing I do when I get home from grocery shopping is remove all the packaging from snack items like these. The bulky boxes quickly clutter up pantry space. Now it’s easier to take a quick inventory of what is already on hand before the next grocery run.

Productivity is difficult when things are cluttered and disorganized. When setting up your workstation make sure to keep close at hand the things you use regularly. You’ll stay focused and your work efficiency will increase. This before and after of my clients desk drawer is a testimony to just that!

If you have a deep freezer that is impossible to keep organized, these multipurpose bins from @thecontainerstore have been life changing! We freeze a ton of produce over the summer to use all year long, but the bags were constantly getting buried. The bins allow me to store like with like, as well as store the bags upright. No more frostbitten fingers searching through the bottom of the freezer! 🤗

If your kitchen lacks storage space, take advantage of the vertical space on the back of your cabinet doors. @thecontainerstore sells a variety of adhesive containers that work perfectly for this! Command hooks would be another great option for hanging things like measuring cups and measuring spoons. Don’t let a small space get in the way of your organizational goals!
