The same science-style-soul recipe I use in 1:1 design acts as the “soil” of this publication.
Each season I’ll be sharing inspirations, considerations, and collaborations for tending a restorative lifestyle wrapped around and threaded through a shared love for nature, gardens, and the feeling-good-inside-healing magic.

Photos & quotes are part of a #thriveoutsidehealinside collection curated over the decades – resources that I turn to for inspiration, empowerment & reassurance – not unlike my healing relationship with my garden & nature beyond.
What’s up with the name? Research shows that even in a very busy life, small sips of views of nature-based positive distractions, yet momentary, reduce pain, anxiety, stress, fatigue, distress & other physiological & psychological outcomes.
Find the entire collection over in the blog archives.
