Missing Fall

Still thinking about fall and hope I get another chance to see some color next week. Temperature wise we will get another little warm up but the wind and rain over the next three days may rip all leaves from the trees. 

Fingers crossed and here are a few of my favorites from previous years. 


We are the co-creators of our life and the time is now. More than ever are we needed to support Mother Earth and each other. Together we discover and explore our unique gifts in times of strengths, in times we lean on each other, and in times when we learn from each other. This blog started as an outlet and what I ultimately called my “Warriors Journey.” It was a way to document the ups and downs of my life, sharing my hardships as well as my successes. It showcased the struggles, but more important the ways of how to overcome them. Although we are warriors each and every day, I realized that having to be a warrior, comes from a place of pain. I decided to rename this blog, and “Phoenix Rising” now stands for the story of overcoming such a painful place. My motivation for this blog hasn’t changed and I hope to share inspiration and hope, to create a sense of belonging, a space of being heard, and connecting with like minded beings who instill a sense of oneness. We are never alone, and we are unstoppable in the pursuit of what sets our soul on fire. Who I am in a nutshell... 
I am an energy healer and Reiki Master. I am surviving a chronic disease that I’ve sent into remission three times since my initial bout, 15 years ago. I continuously challenge the status quo and by doing so I change my stars. I am a believer that anything is possible. I am a hopeless romantic and I believe that true love exists on various levels. I am an optimist that will always see the glass as half full. I am a dreamer, believing in endless possibilities. Not even the sky is the limit. I have jumped off of the hamster wheel, and I am writing a new chapter. I am chasing my Nirvana to support my most authentic self. This is my story, I am that Phoenix and I am rising from the ashes. Namaste 🙏🏼💙🦋

  1. I really hope you get to see some more Fall. Fall is my favorite season. I love the changing leaves, the new chill in the,air, the change from grilled foods to soups and stews. I love going to the Farmers Market and buying acorn squash and Brussels Sprouts still on the stalk. I love pumpkin everything. I love getting into cozy sweaters and boots. I really do wish some more Fall for you.

    1. I hope so too Patty and I love fall for the same reasons you do. To witness the beautiful color spectacle and the last stand before winter strips the trees down to a barren, naked self. I wore my over the knee boots yesterday with leggings and a long shirt and I enjoyed the transition as well. Xoxoxo

  2. There are some trees close to my house with leaves that turned a gorgeous pink shade. I see them and they remind me of you. 😊 I’ll try to get a picture but I’m not a good photographer.
