Happy Thursday loves! I finally got my copy of Thoughtfully Magazine’s Spring Detox Issue and I’m so excited to share with you my feature in it!!πŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸ˜πŸ’« @thoughtfullymagazine is a beautiful publication that embraces intentional living, wellness and self-care and is a brand that I love and have watched it grow and blossom.🌸
This article is especially meaningful to me because I had the opportunity to share some details about my personal story - how my journey began as a chef and nutritionist and how Just Add Water came to life, crafted to support self-care.πŸ’™πŸ’§ @justaddwaterinc
Thoughtfully's founder @brandiegilliam, is such an inspiration and an absolute vision of living passionately and mindfully. I'm so very grateful to be featured in this issue.πŸ™πŸ»βœ¨

Sometimes 15 minutes at the beach can feel like an hour of meditating....love how calming it is to connect to nature.🌊 Especially with full schedules even on the weekends, a few minutes like this in the morning can be so grounding.πŸ™πŸ» What do you guys like to do to ground yourself? #SerenaLoves β™₯️ #TakeAMoment

I’ve been going through old photos and found the perfect one to share wonderful news with you all today!πŸ™πŸ»πŸ˜
As most of you know by now, I've been off social media for quite some time because my Grandma has been in and out of the hospital the last several weeks. With daily changes in her stability, most days were filled with crushing sadness, peppered with glimpses of hope.πŸ˜” I didn't want to weigh down my messages with posts that seemed too heavy and serious, but I also didn't want to post anything just to post, because of anxiety that I had not posted for so long. That felt disconnected and unauthentic to me.🚫
So instead, I've honored my situation and I’ve spent my time focused on my loved ones, on work, and on creating a space of compassion and surrender for both myself, my family and my Grandma, so that we may embrace all aspects of this journey that is life.β™₯️
And by measures that can't really be explained by medicine, Grandma was able to sit up this week, for the first times in weeks and give us a laugh and a giggle!πŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸ‘΅πŸΌπŸŒŸ I am overwhelmed with gratitude and I wanted to share this with all of you. Thank you for all the love and support. We feel it, we receive it and it matters more than you know.πŸ€—πŸ’• #SerenaLoves #FamilyFirst #ThankYouEveryone ✨

Life is so precious.✨ As I sit here with my Grandma in the ICU, this quote resonates me with in a way that is both beautiful and sad.πŸ™πŸ» These past few weeks have been blurs of moments filled with panic and pain, mixed in with flashes of relief and hope. In these moments filled with so much love, I am reminded that I am blessed to be here, holding her hand.β™₯️
For anyone who knows me even casually, you know that my family is my highest priority. There have been times that others didn't understand the sacrifices I made to be with them, to support them or to spend time with them. That no matter what my schedule looks like, or how full my plate seems, that my weekly visits with my family are non-negotiables that I don't budge on. Especially now, I am forever grateful for all those precious seconds spent with them.πŸ’–
We all get so busy, and time passes so quickly. As much as I encourage the passion and pursuit of our dreams, I also feel it's important to share with you this reminder, of these priceless times that one will come to cherish even more after the moments have passed. Today, or tomorrow, or sometime this week, make space to spend time and be present with someone you love. In person, in a phone call, in a letter, or even in thoughtful remembrance.... These precious moments are what make up life's most cherished memories.β™₯️ #GratefulHeart #FamilyLove #PreciousMoments #SerenaLoves

Spent all of Easter weekend in the ER and hospital with our precious and adorable Grandma....still here and still waiting for the turnaround we continue to expect every hour.πŸ™πŸ»πŸ‘΅πŸΌ All of March was a whirlwind of nonstop magic and madness and miracles, from unveiling Just Add Waterβ„’ during Oscars weekend, to global speaking engagements....and everything came to a screeching halt late Friday night.🚫
We never seem to stop receiving reminders and lessons from the Universe, from our angels above and our angels here among us.πŸ’« Reminders to Slow Down. Breathe. Embrace what is present. Embrace those who are present.β™₯️ This is all that truly matters. Even though this is the core of my practice, the very foundation for what I do, I still needed the reminder that when I don’t slow myself down, the Universe will do it for me.✨ Grandma is one of the strongest and toughest women I've ever known and I believe with all my heart that she will pull through and come home. We’re not leaving her side until she does.πŸ’―πŸ”œ Thank you so much for the few of you who have known, who have sent your loving energy our way. All of it has been felt, received and appreciated.πŸ™πŸ»πŸ’– #MyHearts #FamilyLove #FamilyFirst

On this Saturday night, the last Blue Moon until 2020 will rise.🌝 This Full Moon is about harmonizing the balance between the Sun in Aries opposite the Moon in Libra.πŸ”₯ Ruled by Mars, Fiery Aries is about passion while Libra, ruled by Venus, is about compassion.β™ˆοΈβ™ŽοΈ We are embracing this balance using this powerful gemstone trio.✨✨ Amethyst to clear all the negative emotional, physical and mental energies we carry within ourselves and even ancestrally.πŸ’œIt’s a wonderful stone to work with the Crown Chakra.πŸ˜‡ Angel Quartz connects you to your higher self and angels and guides.πŸ’– It helps you release negativity to find a deep sense of inner peace, tranquility and happiness. Azurite Malachite is a mix of Azurite, also known as a stone of heaven, and Malachite, known as the stone of transformation.πŸ’«πŸ’™ Together this stone stimulates intuition, creativity, and promotes physical and spiritual healing.πŸ™πŸ» And of course, a little cinnamon love with my matcha latte pulls my self-love ritual together. πŸ΅πŸ€— #SerenaLoves β™₯️

Throwback to last week when I took Serena Loves to another level by sharing my philosophies on an international stage and bridging the connection between energies aligning from an online platform through social media and real-life rapport and exchange of ideas with people from every continent on the planet. 🌎🀝 How absolutely remarkable the world we live in has now become and how grateful I am to be a part of it and connected to you all. βœ¨πŸ™πŸ» Thank you for your invaluable support. πŸ’•β˜ΊοΈ #SerenaLoves β™₯️

Back to the States πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ and back to clean eats πŸŒ±πŸ’š I love making wraps because they’re quick and easy....it’s literally a short cut to healthy eats wrapped up nice and neat!🌯Using Nori as a wrap gives it that extra β€œumami” flavor that ties everything together.....plus you know I’m a fan of vegan sushi πŸ˜‹πŸ£ And if you haven’t had @gtsynergy special edition of Pure Love yet, this week is the last batch of the season! #VeganEats πŸ₯’πŸ₯•#WellnessWednesday #SerenaLoves β™₯️
