Buon giorno, cari Amazoni! Good morning, dear Amazons!

As a lot of you know, I travel for work, and I just got to Charleston, SC. I was bombarded with rehearsals from the moment I arrived (I literally went directly from the airport to rehearsal!) and I’m still settling into my, quite lovely, apartment. As I type, I’m enjoying the glories of my in-unit washer and dryer. C’mon New Yorkers! You know what I mean!

With that in mind, I hope you’ll forgive the lack of a post today. If you’ve been having food adventures without me, I’d love it if you’d tell me about them in the comments. What have you discovered about your own tastes and habits? Did you try a new food and really love it? Did you get creative in your own kitchen?

I’ll start. I had sweetbreads (pancreas) that knocked my socks off. I’d had sweetbreads before, but wasn’t impressed. My waiter told me these were life-changing, and I’m way into life-changing. Later he told me all about the 3-day-long process the restaurant uses to prepare these locally sourced num-nums.

They were served with pickled ramps and fava beans. If you’ve never had ramps, they’re a spring crop, much like asparagus. They’re foraged instead of cultivated, and generally found along riverbeds on the east coast. They look something like green onions and have a pungency reminiscent of garlic. If you have a chance to pick them up at your local market, I highly recommend it!

Best wishes and good eating, Amazons!

Little sister, all grown up. How blessed am I to have been a part of your perfect day. To get to share in your joy, and thereby multiply it with everyone else who came to celebrate. . Stunning πŸ“Έ by @stephanie.mccauley . 20 years ago our parents met. But I think our 5 siblings are the ones who really made out on this deal. . . #love #positiveemotionproject #bride #bridesmaid #fallwedding #bonussister #littlesister #perfectday #sisters
We're so good at making relationships complicated- with others and with ourselves! πŸ€¦β€β™€οΈ But when I peel away the layers of pain, defensiveness, and unhelpful patterns I'm left with 3 truths: 1️⃣ We're all human (I thinkπŸ‘½) 2️⃣ We all have something to contribute. Unique combinations of skills and interests. Our passions and what we care about. They lead us to contributions that no one can make. And your world needs to what YOU can bring into it. 3️⃣ We all make mistakes - you. Me. Your boss. Your parents. Your kids. @msrachelhollis & @tonyrobbins . everybody. When you accept that you can forgive yourself and others for their human-ness. No one comes out perfect. We're all a work in progress. If you can accept this you can stop expecting perfection from yourself and others. Do these 3 ring true for you? Which of them do you struggle to accept and live? #growandchange #growthmindset #coaching #coachmentality #selfdevelopment #human #humanrace #acceptance #acceptyourself #weallmakemistakes
