my new v i s i o n

It’s 2023 and I’m looking out at the water during my favorite part of the day, sunset, & reflecting on how blessed I am. I am a loving wife, mother, daughter, sister & friend. I feel peace, love and gratitude every single morning when I wake up to the soft, natural sunlight in my gorgeous, inviting bedroom. My family means the absolute world to me. My husband is someone who not only lifts me up and makes me laugh, but also challenges me to be the best person that I can be every single day. We are a true team: communicating effectively, loving each other passionately and unconditionally, showing our appreciation for each other & giving each other our own space to pursue our passions, mine being blogging on Honestly Simple. We instill the importance of a healthy mind & body to our twins: having a family & individual goal boards displayed in our kitchen, spending our weekend afternoons outside doing yoga/riding bikes/water sports together & having family game/movie nights. Our home is something that my husband and I have put a lot of thought and creativity into. We renovated a house that’s within walking distance to the beach and we completely made it our own using as many green products & appliances as we could—original hardwood flooring, exposed brick, a modern/clean/open kitchen and unique art pieces on the walls mixed in with photographs that I have taken of the family. We also take one family vacation a year to someplace new & my husband and I also take a vacation together once a year to get quality time together, have fun and truly relax. Showing our children different cultures and exposing them to the world is something that we value.

I am a creator, a teacher and a helper. I am in an area role for lululemon athletica focusing on people development and community relationships. I travel to different stores one week out of the month to train store managers & leadership teams on effective communication, recruiting, developing a powerful vision, living out their goals and how to spread that to their community through their events and their everyday floor shifts. I enjoy building and nurturing those relationships that I have with my teammates, members of other teams that I interact with & people out in the community. I truly love all aspects of my job: the culture, living the lifestyle & how I never stop learning and developing myself.

I am healthy, active & my smile lights up a room. I love to cook my family healthy, homemade, organic meals and juice 4 times a week. We take a trip to a farmers market at least once a week to support our local farmers & vendors. Yoga is very much apart of my life and getting in at least 4 sweats a week in with my family, teammates & friends is something that I make time for and is completely doable with my work/life balance.

I am radiant. I feel complete. I am my true, authentic self.
