Wild and Rooted

When I was pregnant, I had these grand thoughts that my twins would sleep in a swing all day (because babies sleep a lot, right?) and I would be able to work while taking small breaks to feed and play with them. Life would basically be the same but with these cute, sleeping cooperative little humans. 

I like to call this time in my life: Delusional

Instead, they refused to sleep on the same schedule, would wake up every 1-2 hours to eat during the night, would only settle while being held and basically took over my life. I stopped working, lived in my PJ’s, ate & showered occasionally, left San Fransisco and moved in with my parents.

That was 7 years ago… some things have changed, some things haven’t.

I have my own business, eat & shower with a smidge more regularity, PJ’s are still on regular rotation but I no longer live at my parents. So what, that’s about 50/50? Haha!

About a year ago, I started to have enough time to entertain the idea that I could be a woman outside of motherhood. I started to explore the idea of alone time, and self-discovery. I started to have physical boundaries and a bit more autonomy over my body. I could finally connect to my desires. This started a journey of re-discovery.

For many years this journey was an inside job. But over the years it became clear that I didn’t want to do it alone anymore. That there is magic in sharing space with women. And there is medicine in making space for self-discovery. 

This is why I started Wild + Rooted Sanctuary. Heck, this is why I started The Rooted Experience!

Wild + Rooted was born out of a desire to support women in finding themselves in the sacredness of everyday moments. To provide unique, spiritual, ethically & sustainably made products that inspire moments of self-connection and magic. 

Motherhood isn’t the only life experience that invites us into deeper relationship with ourselves. Sometimes it’s the ending of a relationship, or moving to a new city, or getting married… 

What was it for you?

What inspired you to take a deep look inside?

How has the journey been for you?

I’d love to hear. 

Until then, know that I’m out here cheering you on.

Reach out with anything. Really.
