For those who don’t know, I published a wellness journal @beginwithintoday in May (it was def the highlight of a weird year), and I’m offering 20% off for Cyber Monday with code CYBERLOVE. 📔If you decide to purchase today (or, whenever), thank you in advance for supporting a small, women/spoonie-owned, USA-made/printed, and eco-friendly business, as well as our charitable recipient of the month! More info on the journal (available internationally)… Begin Within is a daily healing journal for those living life with chronic illness, mental illness or other health-related challenges (but also, a great self-care journal ANYONE can use). This journal allows you to document everything from your vitals to your nutrition, mood, medications, symptoms, challenges, and accomplishments (big and small), with a focus on gratitude. Documenting such information is helpful for healthcare appointments and makes a great reference for recalling specific information written down, as well as noting any progress and connecting dots. Journaling daily is wonderful for one's own mental health and can provide valuable insight and support on your path to wellness. Each journal includes 90 days, or one season of daily prompts. Journaling can help with managing anxiety, stress, depression and boosting your mood by: * Helping you prioritize problems, fears, and concerns * Clarifying YOUR thoughts, and feelings  * Tracking any symptoms (both positive and negative) day-to-day so that you can recognize triggers and valuable coping mechanisms  * Working through resolving disagreements in relationships, and situations * Providing an opportunity for positive self-talk and identifying negative thoughts and behaviors * Practicing mindfulness, gratitude and visualizations  Each month, we donate a portion of journal sales to an organization that promotes advocacy, research and resources for/to the chronic illness community. We are so excited to have selected @angels_of_epilepsy for November💕 Sending love, health, and Metta <3 Christina P.S. S/o to @lindsaykphoto_ for the photo, and my soul sister @forloveandbliss for the content design 🙏🏽

#TravelTuesday is taking me back to the @trickeyemuseum ‘s #IceMuseum in Seoul, South Korea❄️ It was definitely a coool experience (#dadjokes). Read more about this, and other things to do in the #SeoulTravel Guide - Link is in bio 🇰🇷 Alt-text: Christina Kantzavelos sliding down an ice slide inside the Ice Museum within the Trick Eye Museum in Seoul, South Korea.

Happy belated bday to the one, and only, Georgia O’keeffe💫 I was inspired to visit San Francisco de Asis Mission Church after seeing her paintings of it inside the @okeeffemuseum . 💒 You may also recognize it from Ansel Adams’ photography work. Each year, the church’s community volunteers to re-plaster the church in adobe (made up of clay, sand, straw, and plaster), making the structure essentially resilient to the elements. The parish hall is also home to the famous 18th Century oil painting called “The Shadow of the Cross” by Henri Ault, aka “The Mystery Painting.” Apparently, it glows in the dark (and they still don’t know why). ✨You can see it glow for $3. P.S. Full #TaosGuide coming to you soon 🙌🏽🗺 #taos #visittaos #cityoftaos #traveltuesday

This has been a year of immense change for all of us. 💫How are you settling into the new ‘you?’ . . Alt-text: Quote by Yung Pueblo that reads, “When you grow rapidly and experience such deep insights that you can no longer look at yourself or the world in the same way. Be kind, allow yourself the time and space to settle into the new you.”

I’m so grateful that @casaerimos has the cutest backyard to host stay-at-home picnics in. I created a plant-based charcuterie board (yeah, that’s cashew cheese 🧀) for a couple of close friends, and we loved it. @scharglutenfree makes my favorite table crackers, so they are almost always included on my boards (and with soups, and meze plates, etc.). #AD These crackers are gluten-free, preservative-free, lactose-free, and low-fodmap. Plus, a little salty for my POTSIES fam. . . Have you tried @scharglutenfree’s table crackers? Also, what’s your favorite item to include on a charcuterie board? #schar #scharpartner #scharglutenfree

Guanajuato is one one my fav cities in Mexico (🗺checkout the weekend guide in the link in the bio). 🇲🇽✨ I can’t wait to further explore MX as soon as I feel comfortable enough to travel again. #TravelTuesday Have you been to Mexico? What’s your favorite part?

One way I handled my stress from last week >>> Turning this drab cabinet space into something funky (I found the doors while cleaning and organizing the garage 😻 - They needed a good scrub and a couple of layers of white paint). You’re looking ssssso cute, @casa.erimos 😘🏡🌵 An additional win >>> Although I selected low-toxic house-paint, I’m quite proud of my body for tolerating the scent/chemicals. MCAS (histamine intolerance) had me only using watercolor as a medium for years, with a fear of touching anything remotely scented (migraines, hives, respiratory distress, brain fog, etc.). ✨A big thank you to neural retraining, escaping from mold, detoxing in all forms, and my LLMDs at @ifsmed @restorationhealthcare1 for getting me here. 🙏🏽 We are all capable of healing. 💛 Looking forward to busting out the oil and acrylic paints again. 🎨💕

Living here has been a dream so far. ✨ Have you visited @joshuatreenps ? If so, what’s your fav spot in the park, or in town? If not, is it on your list? Continue to stay tuned (possibly indefinitely) for @casa.erimos 🙈🌵, and head to the California section of the blog (link is in bio) for the weekend guide.

✨A Weekend (+Gluten-Free) Guide to Taos, New Mexico ✨ is LIVE ON BLOG! Taos is one of the most enchanting towns in the state of enchantment. At nearly 7,000 feet in elevation, this northern city sits on the edge of the Rio Grande in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, the start of the Rocky Mountain range. It has a rich indigenous culture and is home to a World Heritage Site (Taos Pueblo). It’s a renowned art colony, with a world-class ski resort, majestic landscape, distinctive cuisine, and so much more. It’s a place where national jurisdictions have changed hands three times (Spanish, Mexican, American), and encompasses the past, present, and future. Here is our guide to a perfect weekend in this perfect city… >>> Link is in bio! Photo: Rio Grande Gorge Bridge 🌉 The fifth-highest bridge in the country (650 ft. over the Rio Grande)… Don’t look down. But actually do it. It’s cool. Locals say this is a well-known energy vortex. Whether you’re into it or not, it’s just beautiful to experience.
