Free-Range Fruit | Lovely Loquat Jam

Culinary + Fashion For years, I’ve walked past these gorgeous, rich green trees full of little yellow fruits, not knowing what they were or if they were edible or not. Once I finally figured out that they were perfectly fine (note: delicious) to eat, I began devouring from every tree that crossed my path. With my first tangy, sweet bite, I knew it was love. Ripe loquats, with their velvety golden skin and their brownish-golden seeds, taste like the perfect combination of a plum, peach, mango and citrus fruit all rolled up into the perfect juicy ball.

Why We Travel | Wild World

On my vision board for 2017 – one of my biggest invocations – was more travel, to continue pushing my horizons beyond that of my known regions. When an opportunity to travel to Brazil presented itself, my knee-jerk response was “I can’t afford to be away right now.” To be honest, that’s my knee-jerk response to a lot of circumstances. Turning that automatic response of LACK into one of accepting abundance is part of my daily practice. I’m  working on it! I’m working on it! What message would I be sending the universe after having just asked for more...
