Does this resonate with you?

“Numbing vulnerability also dulls our experience of love, joy, belonging, creativity, and empathy. We can’t selectively numb emotion. Numb the dark and you numb the light” – Brene Brown

How about this? 

For all my girls out there sick and tired of hangovers,
"Let's grab drinks!", wasted weekends...
you too may be SOBER CURIOUS (thanks Ruby Warrington!). 

Welcome! This post is for you.

Have you heard about The Rise of the Sober Social Scene ?

Don't worry! 
There are cool alternatives popping up in big cities like:

Lady Lavender Mocktail by The Merry Thought
1/4 cup Fresh Lemon Juice
1 1/2 tbsp Lavender Simple Syrup
1/4 tsp Grenadine
3 dashes Bitters
Lavender Simple Syrup

Combine 1/2 cup water, 1/2 cup sugar, and 1 tbsp dried lavender to a sauce pan. Bring to a boil then turn off the heat. Let mixture cool in the pan and then strain out the lavender. Combine above in shaker with ice and shake until cold. Strain into glass and top off with club soda. Garnish with fresh lavender. (We may have added a teeny bit of blue food coloring to make it the color we wanted – not even a full drop, just a tiny bit on the end of a toothpick)

The Physics of the Quest

“I've come to believe that there exists in the universe something I call 'The Physics of The Quest' — a force of nature governed by laws as real as the laws of gravity or momentum. And the rule of Quest Physics maybe goes like this: 'If you are brave enough to leave behind everything familiar and comforting (which can be anything from your house to your bitter old resentments) and set out on a truth-seeking journey (either externally or internally), and if you are truly willing to regard everything that happens to you on that journey as a clue, and if you accept everyone you meet along the way as a teacher, and if you are prepared – most of all – to face (and forgive) some very difficult realities about yourself... then truth will not be withheld from you.' Or so I've come to believe.”
