I just started my mental health blog and online self-care shop. I’m a big believer that by helping others and being nice, you bring yourself joy. I’ve spent the last 3 years of my career working in the Fair Trade community, and fell in love with the mission and people. As a result, I have developed many personal relationships with brands and leaders within the community. I’m looking to grow my positive impact on the world, as well as developing my own store.

HUGE NEWS/PRESALE ALERT: Twin Engine Coffee is working with a lovely group of talented women ( in Nicaragua) to debut their new Nativity set in the USA. Veronica (with the coffee cup) is the designer. Why? #1 They are beautifully hand-made. Beyond that, few people in Nicaragua have a way to present you their lovely work. We want to help give them a spot ‘at the table’ (especially given how hard it has been in 2018 & 2020). It is part of 'working at the source.' Because we ship [yummy] coffee all the time to the U.S., we can help them by shipping these, too. That way, they can work at a 'hand-made' pace and don't have to try to mass produce. If there are collectors out there, these are not mass produced. Each one is hand-made. If anyone has ever wanted a set to touch & enjoy, rather than just look, this is it! ....... Two options available: 7 piece set: $50 Full set: $100 ..... Contact me and pay by November 1 if you want to guarantee one for yourself or for gifts. Only the number preordered will be ordered from Nicaragua, so contact me today! You can PayPal or we can invoice you. Orders will be to us in Minnesota by December 1. .... Please note that due to the small size of the shop, holiday themed items will be very limited this first year. .... Questions? DM us! . . . #nativity #nicaragua #fairtrade #handmade #feltedwool #fairtradesolidarity #shopsmall #fightpoverty #supportsmallbusiness #eaganmn #minneapolis #stpaul #twincities #minnesota #holidayseason #holidayshopping #presale

You may have noticed that I’ve been really quiet since returning from my meditation retreat last week. Well, I had a COVID scare while I was there, so I returned home immediately to quarantine and be tested. This morning my results came back negative, so my feeling that it was all just a very bizarre migraine, was likely spot on. Migraines are very strange events that mess with your whole body in the oddest of ways. If this experience has taught me anything, it has been to take this pandemic even more seriously than I already have. I believe the scientists, follow all public health protocols and recommendations, and do my best to stay home and avoid gatherings of any size. I go to my day job, and the grocery store, and maybe once a week I’ll head out somewhere to support a local small business that I love or want to check out. I have to do something to keep a bit of sanity! But seriously, it has not been fun having to wear a mask around my own house as to not risk exposing my family if I had it, having to have all of my own hand towels, cleaning after myself anytime I was in a common space, and having to stay isolated in my bedroom almost 24 hours a day. And the test wasn’t pleasant, either! Please if you’re not following all of the public health protocols and recommendations, do so now! Don’t put yourself or someone you care about through this anxiety, or worse. The winter ahead in Minnesota is going to be long and scary. We ALL have the power to make this better if we wear a mask (and wear it properly!), avoid gatherings of any size (it’s the smaller gatherings they’re worried about now), wash your hands, and just stay home if you’re not feeling well. We are all in the same boat. We can keep each other safe and help each other keep our spirits up via video and text. Find ways to make people laugh, or an activity you can share on video. Makes funny videos and send them to people (my nephews did it for their aunt and it was hilarious!). We all have the power to keep people safe while lifting each other up. Will you? . . . #believescience #covid_19 #covidlife #quarantinelife #wearamask #socialdistancing #washyourhands #stayhome #staysafe #inspireothers
Who else is obsessed with foam, like me? 🖐 Today’s cappuccino looks so pretty in my rustic mug made in India by my friends at @terra_klay . . . . #fairtrade #nicaraguancoffee #nicaragua #fairtradecoffee #originroasted #organiccoffee #specialtycoffee #coffeeinpovertyout #foam #cappuccino #cappuccinoaddict #coffeeaddict #india #fairtradepottery #blackclay #supportfairtrade #shopsmall #supportsmallbusiness #fightpoverty #minneapolis #stpaul #twincities #eaganmn #minnesota
Apparently it’s Bosses Day! Might I recommend a $15 digital gift card from my shop for the main @twinenginecoffee website? This is enough to get them almost any bag of coffee or tea of their choice (since my inventory is very low and I am currently sick), and it all goes directly to the team in Nicaragua so they can continue bringing all of us this amazing coffee, and give them the opportunity to create more jobs and give hope to their community! ❤️ And my “boss”/mentor, Andrea, would be so grateful, too! Happy Bosses Day to all of you bosses! . . . #nicaragua #nicaraguancoffee #coffeeinpovertyout #fightpoverty #fairtrademonth #fairtradesolidarity #fairtradecoffee #organiccoffee #specialitycoffee #minneapolis #stpaul #twincities #eaganmn #minnesota #shopsmall #supportsmallbusiness #supportfairtrade #supportcoffeefarmers #bossesday
I committed to slowing down for the month of October. For the better part of 2 months, I was running on overdrive, pushing myself beyond my own limits. What I was doing was intense under normal circumstances; but times are far from normal. Living during a massive global pandemic is nothing virtually anyone alive today has ever seen before. No one knows what this virus will do to us or those we love. No one is really immune. No one is really safe. I think, the one thing we do in fact know, is that most of us are scared and sad. I am both so those at any given moment. We do our best to keep trudging forward with optimism and positive thinking. We “half smile,” as they call it in therapy, and try to put one foot in front of the next. This week I am heading out to the @christinecenter in central Wisconsin for a few days of silent meditation to try to rebuild my strength and resilience before the isolation of the upcoming winter sets in here in Minnesota. I know that I need the space to fully disconnect with the world and reconnect with my own inner strength. I need to find the fire within me to keep moving forward during possibly the most isolating winter we have ever seen. Just about four years ago I made my first trip out to The Christine Center, on the cusp of a huge life decision. My 3 days there definitely changed my life, and began the series of events that led to where I am today. I am looking forward to 3 more transformative days of silence, nature, and my own breath. This is the best thing I can possibly do for myself right now. I hope you all can find the time you need to rebuild your own strength before the winter ahead, and recommit yourselves to doing what it takes to keep each other safe during this scary time. See you on the flip side! 🌎☮️💙☕️ . . . #retreat #selfcare #wellness #selfcareisntselfish #mentalhealthmatters #meditationretreat #nature #silence #mindfulness #committoyourself #resilience
