What does it mean to be a 'Mrs'...?

OOOoooo, a week from today we’ll be celebrating at the Raw Union festie in S. Oregon and getting the final preparations in place for our wedding on the 21st– yeeeeeeeee–HAH ;)
Will you be there to join us? Don’t forget to send in your contribution for the Raw Union Time Capsule if you’re not going to be there in person ;) You can send things to:

Raw Union Festival - Time Capsule Contribution
c/o Angel’s Organic Farm
9394 Blackwell Rd.
Central Point, OR 97502

We’ve just heard that Justin and Heidi from will be joining us at the festie to renew their wedding vows and celebrate 5 years on a raw path together – nice :) See HERE for their blog post about the festie.
Don’t forget to check out the Raw Union community rideshare board too, if you’d love to find someone to share the journey with – you can see that HERE.

on June the 10th I had:

1 quart water
shot of wheatgrass
2 cups greeeeen juice
25 chlorella ‘nuts’
2 cups yummy energy soup, followed by 1 Tbsp Goji Bliss
3 cups water
delicious pre–wedding trial feast of some of the buffet dishes and desserts (secrets for now – lol, sorry - Solla is working her magic ;)
mug of spicy tea
3 cups water

Soooo, it seems I have one week left of being a ‘Miss’...before I become a Stokes–Monarch... I’m not sure yet if I’ll step into the title of ‘Mrs’ – that somehow feels a bit distant and ‘real’ to me – like I might have to start wearing a pinafore or smthg if I take that name ;) ...I suspect I may become a ‘Ms’ instead...and maybe someday I’ll gain an extra ‘r’...we’ll feels rather odd as well to think that in a week’s time someone is going to be referring to me as ‘my wife’...I haven’t had that title yet in this lifetime and it seems very unfamiliar...I think that’s going to take a while to get used to ;)
As I mentioned before, I didn’t anticipate marrying at all when I was growing up, so this is all rather peculiar territory to me – Mr. M and I are both very excited about the upcoming festie celebrations though and co–creating a witnessed heart–space in community, within which to clarify our commitments and intentions with each other. We’re also feeling incredibly blessed to have had the marvellous Laura Fox heading up the organisation of this whole event – she is such a pro and has pulled everything together into a vibrant, exciting festie for all to enjoy – thanks so much Laura :)
We look forward to connecting with y’all at Raw Union next weekend, if you can be there in person – you can get your tickets at if you don’t already have them...
