Make every day a holiday!

‘Tis the season to get groovy! And I have been raisin’ my vibration and dancing all over my house this morning! Nothing gets me going like Madonna, some funky dance moves, and singing along to every word like I’m right there on stage with her! I put on The Immaculate Collection and I was off…in the bathroom, on my computer chair, while I made my avocado toast…Music has this way with me! It’s a high that I never want to come down from! If you would have witnessed the amount of energy that was bouncing around my house this morning, you would have thought it was a holiday or something. Which brings me to my next thought… Why can’t I live each day like it is a holiday?! Holiday means “a day of festivity or recreation,” which to me, sounds like what I try to make every day in some way or another! Even on the days when fear moves in or the light inside of me feels dim, there is always a moment or moments when I am able to shift into my stellar space once again! And the best part about it all, you ask? Well, when I am in this incredible space of bliss and I connect with you, both of our vibrations are raised together and we put that energy out into the world, ultimately spreading the love! In other words, your happiness has a domino effect that is truly magnificet! So, in Madonna’s words, “Let love shine” and create your own holiday! Fa la la la la la la la Ommmm!

As a part of the celebration of today, I have some simple & yummy plant-based & gluten-free recipes.

The first one is such a staple for me when I need a meal quick and healthy! I posted a couple different pics because this is a meal that can be changed around and served in all different ways!
