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.) This morning I wanted to give you a reason to get up and moving. Free yoga while you drink coffee. Monday mornings are the […]

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 […]

Low(er) Carb Apple Bread

Bread.  Oh bread.  I love you, bread.  Sadly, you don’t seem to love me very much.  Or…do you love me too much?  Either way, I’ve learned that we just can’t hang out like we used to.  And that’s ok.  We’ll be like long-distance friends.  We’ll see each other every now and again.  And it’ll be […]

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 […]

All the weekend fun!

Don’t ya just love it when you wake up on Monday morning and there are a thousand tasks just waiting so patiently for you to complete? That’s me right now. I’m still in weekend mode hardcore. I need like 4 more Saturdays in a row. Anyways! It’s Monday… not Saturday… and I’m a little sad […]

Cheddar and Brie Mac and Cheese

Hello tribe! It’s Friday Eve! Praise Jesus and a hallelujah!! Whoa mama it’s been a week for me. Like, GOOD GRIEF! Isn’t it so crazy when you start a new project how your whole life seems to change rotation? Since opening the yoga studio my schedule (and life) has been totally insane. For the last […]

Teddy Roosevelt was a wise man

Good day friends! I hope you all had an amazing weekend!! We had a crazy busy weekend over here. We spent the weekend running around like crazy trying to get the new yoga studio ready as well as getting our family ready for the week (cooking, cleaning, snuggling, yelling, loving… you know, family stuff). My […]
