The kids love dressing up for Halloween and we’ve been dreaming up costumes since last year. While Halloween is fun to dress up and trick-or-treat, I know it can also be scary for the little ones. We love watching @NetflixFamily’s Super Monsters to show them that Halloween is fun and not so spooky after all! #NetflixPartner #NetflixSuperMonsters

For the past 9 days, I’ve been traveling with a small group in and around some of the most ancient and beautiful places in Jordan. Talking with the lovely Bedouins and Jordanians, eating at their tables, and walking their most sacred paths has changed me. It has altered the trajectory of my own life in ways that are yet to be seen.
.
Traveling alone has been hard because I ultimately feel that my purpose is my family, and the distance confirms that purpose. However, what I’ve learned about myself, by simply being able to listen to my own heart and mind is a reminder that self-care is always a priority.
.
I am working with the Jordan Tourism Board to share my experience here, but my personal and spiritual takeaways are lasting and important, and hopefully far-reaching. This country is highly reliant on tourism, and I’m honored to support and hopefully inspire some of you to consider the journey yourselves!
.
There is so much personal growth in immersing in other cultures, I am incredibly grateful for the opportunity.

It occurred to me-while brushing back the sand on a mosaic created in 785-how what we do with our hearts, our hands, our intentions, is our entire legacy.
.
I’m in Jordan, too far from my children, learning about how culture is steeped in history and passion (as I believe it should be).
.
I’m solely responsible for myself and that is more of a foreign feeling than the voices speaking in words I cannot understand all around me. I’m forever humbled by the passion around me and I’m learning how to bring that home with me, inside and out.

Hold on tight and nothing will feel precarious.
This week is going to be tough for me. I’m embarking on a journey that will take me far from the roots of my heart, in an effort to connect with the strings of my soul.
I’ve invested my entire self into the well-being of my family, and yes, that’s absolutely my joy and pure existence.
Along the way however, I lost sight of how to properly care for myself. Maybe I never knew? I jumped from the fun/college single life to love and pregnancy in the span of 2 months.
So I’m treating this upcoming work visit to Jordan as a spiritual reconnection as well.
Part of that will be humanitarian, part feeling my entire self in the Holy land, part life experience.
I want to present my whole best being to these incredible kids of mine.

We are having important conversations as a society. Let’s work to raise strong boys that respect others and recognize their privilege, and girls who know their worth despite a country that consistently votes to undermine it. I am hopeful for their future, even still.
