We’ve just moved into our new home and – shit. is. everywhere. This Thanksgiving story reminds us…sometimes it’s the littlest of things that help us find our calm at the center of the chaos.

One of fall’s greatest lessons for us is the idea of letting go. The trees do it every year, and actually so should we!

Every time we forget or miss one of the big lessons of life, life will put a situation right there in front of our faces to remind us.

That was PERFECT.”
There’s no other season that offers the same coziness as fall – warm tea, sweaters and scarves, and beauty all around us. If you want to make going inward and transforming yourself a little less scary and a little more cozy, you can’t beat fall!

The Balsamic Moon brings us face to face with the idea that we must let go of the old in order to make space for the new. It reminds us that new beginnings are fresh and exciting – but they also require a dying (metaphorically perhaps), a closing, a letting go of something that no longer serves us.
