THIS WEEK: CURATE CONNECTION

At the core of togetherness is the idea of connection. In other words, when we are connected, we are together. Connection is also the basis for every friendship, relationship, and community. But connection doesn’t just happen on its own. Sure we can randomly bump into […]

THIS WEEK: EXPRESS APPRECIATION

As you go through your day, how good are you at noticing things for which you are grateful? Maybe it’s the warmth of the sun on your skin, a good laugh, the greeting from your puppy when you walk in the front door, or the […]

THIS WEEK: FIND YOUR BUDDY

Partner, companion, confidante, pal, friend, buddy – these terms make us think of someone who has our back; someone to share our hobbies, interests, and learn new things with; someone to share our worries with, as well as our celebrations; someone who saves a seat […]

THIS WEEK: CHERISH COMMUNITY

Most of us have spent the better part of two years behind walls and closed doors, disconnected from the outside world. Yes, we are starting to re-enter civilization and community, which comes with its fair share of anxieties and excitement; but our world has become […]

THIS WEEK: VALUE TRADITION

Tradition is embedded in every family, every culture, and every relationship. Some traditions have been in place for generations, while others are new. Some we may not necessarily understand or even think about, because they have always been a part of our life; while other […]

THIS WEEK: GIVE GRACE

Not one person on this earth is perfect. Not even one. This means mistakes will be made. It means that people’s feelings will be hurt, because we live in a social construct and impact one another every single day. Because of this, we all need […]

THIS MONTH: MONDAY GETS COMPASSIONATE

Life can be both beautiful and messy. We have all felt and witnessed it before. In these moments we feel our heart, and collective hearts, sing or break. And, we believe that compassion is one of the greatest answers for all of it. Compassion evokes […]
