Celebration Time ;)

I have news. I’m very excited…
I’m engaged… :O

I suspect many of you already know who the lovely male in question is…for all who are wondering however, his name is Matt Monarch…and he is a wonderful man. I feel extremely blessed.
We have known each other on-and-off for two years now and it’s been quite some adventure ;) Things became a lot more ‘solid’ between us following my Juice Feast earlier this year and then a few days ago, he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him :) I was delighted to say ‘YES’ :)

I've started to look for a beautiful ring and we're waiting to see how and when wedding plans will unfold…

At the moment we're staying for a little while at my parents' place on the south coast of England – they're loving welcoming Matt into the family and Matt's loving it here too - the fresh sea air, dramatic chalk-cliff scenery and lovely sunny weather are so delicious at this time of year…we feel very blessed ;)

We both feel so fortunate to have each other in our lives now, enriching our time here – he is a wonderful partner – loving, sweet, supportive and radiant with truth…I am delighted and excited to share with him… ;)

On August the 8th I had:

1 litre water
200ml orange/grapefruit juice
700ml ‘garden’ juice
400ml rejuvelac
400ml water
blended papaya, banana, goji berries, pine nuts – amazing
raw chocolate bar
500ml rose/chamomile tea
3 apples
salad of young greens, avo, dulse, lime juice, watercress, chives, tomato sauce – fresh tomatoes, garlic, basil, soaked sundried tomatoes, red pepper, blended
500ml water
slice of watermelon
500ml water

I’m enjoying my time back here in Blighty…I’ve been feeling especially blessed to be enjoying fresh produce straight from my mum’s garden – she’s got tomatoes, chives, peppermint, lemon balm, cucumbers and even a FIG ;) I’m impressed…I SO long to get to the land and start growing my own stuff somewhere and it really inspires me to see someone else already embodying that – and so simply – tomatoes trailing out of hanging baskets, chives bunched in pots – no need for a BIG space, just get planting ;) – my mum tells me that many people are starting to grow their own produce here now in the UK – more and more people getting allotments and growing in their gardens too and there’s a lot of media coverage on ‘growing your own’ – WOW – I’m very impressed…great news for everyone… ;)

on August the 9th I had:

1 litre water
300ml rejuvelac
200ml orange/grapefruit juice
piece of flax cracker
400ml carrot juice with greener grasses powder
bowl of blended banana, mango, mulberries and ground chia seeds
glass of rejuvelac
1 apple
3 persimmons
500ml water
spinach wraps with avo, dulse, fresh tomato sauce, fresh coriander and lettuce
raw chocs
1 litre water

It’s my birthday tomorrow (Friday) – August the 10th – yeeeeee-HAH ;) I’m excited…I don’t know what the day will hold yet, as Mr Monarch has taken charge of proceedings ;) FUN…I’ll be 29 and just going into Saturn Return…eeeeeeeeeek…time to hold on tight ;)
All love,

  6. I think I am speaking for a lot of men here when I say we are extremely jealous of Matt, he is one lucky guy and there is probably a collective sigh going on around the world.

    You are now the 'Wonder Twins' of the raw food world.


  7. hah I KNEW it! Congratulations to you both, you'll have an amazing and inspirational life together :)

  8. I only just found out! You look so great together and clearly you adore each other.
