Five books to cozy up with this fall!

Good Morning Yoga Flow (coffee included)

Happy Monday! How’s your morning going? Hopefully it’s beautiful and bright and you’ve got it going on! (I’ve already smeared my makeup and stubbed a toe all before leaving the house.)

Stove-top or Slow Cooker Potpourri

I just painted my nails the shade of hot chocolate.  Well, glittery hot chocolate.  Why?  Because fall.  Delicious, delicious fall.  The air is crisp.  The deck is covered with leaves.  And the lake house?  It smells like one giant cup of hot apple cider.  If you were to walk into my kitchen right now you […]

The Kansas City Half Marathon!

13.1 miles down. Done. Conquered. This was the most incredible experience I have ever had. I can’t even describe how this race made me feel. Badass, maybe? Most of you know how hard I have been training as I post it all over social media. I do that for a couple of reasons; I want […]

Downdog 101

Adho Mukha Svanasana. Downward facing dog. Downdog. The pose that everyone loves to hate. But why? Why is that simple-looking pose so effing hard? I’ve been practicing yoga for about 5-6 years now and downdog was an asana that took some time to learn properly. I want to break it down for you so you […]

*Runs to closet and pulls out all scarves and hats and everything mustard colored*   “I FREAKING LOVE FALL! It is my FAVORITE!” – every Midwestern woman.   But truly. Who doesn’t love fall?! It’s amazing. The brisk walks, the chilly mornings, pumpkin and pecan flavored everything. sign. me. up. About 8 years ago I […]
