..not all who wander are lost..
another week has flown by and i feel like i am getting back
into the studio groove. today i am caught up. editing photos
of originals heading to the shop later tonight. nona would
be proud of me for getting back into the groove of studio
hours and hitting my workload head on. and it is all
good. i mean DANG! it is all GOOD!
some fun things are happening over here. and i
am very happy to say – it is becoming an everyday
thing. this warms me up and i clearly see my
path. oh wait a minute, please don’t take this
as an “kelly finally has all her shit together
and why don’t i” because – i still have those
days. two weeks ago i started juicing and
doing p90x. and this week, i am juicing,
but i have had some crappy cravings too
and i haven’t hit the exercise for 4 days!
see – so imperfect over here. but what
i am finding is that i am moving. i am
a girl who hits it hard and many times
falls hard too. but really i know that this
is part of my truth and i am setting aside
that little place to breathe deep and take
it all in, a little forgiveness goes a long
so you might ask….”kelly what fun links do
you have for me today?” well i have some good
ones, so grab a spot, pour some joe and surf!
there is so much amazing good out there, some
days i simply want to squeal.
keeping to what is real, i have this friend – her name is
liz. yep – she is documenting her daily world. i love
the view from here. ways to slow it down, how to
get a little organization under your belt and
little ways to bring the family together at the table.
i sit here and watch liz parent her wee one and i smile.
go say hello.
liv lane….a gentle force. a gal who i look to for
advice and sometimes a gentle kick in the glutes
to get me back on track. what i love about liv
is her my eyes are on the road attitude. yep she
stumbles just like you and me and ya know what
she puts it out there! liv has done some really
interesting things. i just adore you little space
over here….pssst….it really isn’t a little space,
it is a BIG shiny space full of happy info and
resources. and guess what – she has a spot just
calling your name.
and now a little health infomercial….sponsored
by my flabby backside. i mentioned that i am
juicing. now please soak this part in. i am not
juicing every meal, i am not on a cleanse. just
doing the juice one to two times a day. and even
with the crappy in between choices – i am feeling
better. while i haven’t lost any weight – my skin
has a new layer of shine. and i really just noticed
that this week. my belly doesn’t feel so crampy
and bloated after meals. a couple of weeks ago
my breville ikon arrived on the front porch and
by breakfast the next morn i was slicing and
dicing my way to happyland.
i found a lot of info on kris carr’s sight and i have
her crazy sexy diet book. just need to dive into that.
and whole living mag has dedicated this months
edition to a 21 day cleanse. i am not saying you
need to have three juices a day, but i can say i
do feel better and why not i am getting in my
veggies and fruits.
taking a step back this week, monday we celebrated
martin luther king, jr. i was a girl who grew up
confused and literally astounded that society could
treat others with a different religion or race in such
violent and abusive ways. my parents had to really
watch me and monitor what i saw on tv or heard
at family gatherings. because it affected me deeply.
as it still does. let’s be kind people. when you welcome
difference into your world – your world gets bigger.
my little wanderer on my shoulder has been in full
swing. she likes to peck peck peck on the side of my
head when she is ready to roam. i have to flick
her off her pedestal quite a bit. this week she keeps
coming back. recently she has been whispering sweet
visions of a vintage airstream or even a shasta in
my ear. i would love to pack up for 6months to a year
and just travel our nation. i would have a big map
on the inside wall of the trailer with colorful tacks
stuck on the spots we had hit and the places i have
each of you tucked away. me + the road = heaven.
if you are a girl who loves to wander, and a desire
to find a vintage trailer – check out sisters on the fly.
a little community of chicks who live on their own
terms and love to gather up their unique travel
homes. i have the book and it makes me smile.
and on a “shop” note, stay tuned for several
originals heading to the shop. next week i will
be adding some valentine’s day items and
will be announcing a bit of happy – pay it
forward – fun that i am so excited about.
and – modern family is on tonight – BONUS!

channeling bardot: ie. blog ramblings that pertain to
my life as i see it. moving through my own journey.
using those a-ha moments of clarity to continue
on my quest, allowing my inner self – true self to
shine. and fyi. most days i am a girl just trying
to be me.
“I’m a girl from a good family who was very well
brought up. One day I turned my back on it all
and became a bohemian.”
