Hosting Thanksgiving

This year was my second year hosting Thanksgiving. It was also my second time making a turkey. Y’all. Cooking a turkey is freaking hard work. If you’ve ever made a turkey you know it’s a dang chore. Last year I made a rosemary pear turkey and it was delightful. This year I made a more […]

Amazing changes in amazing places.

Hello kind souls!   I hope everyone is doing well! Things are going well here in the Midwest. We’ve got so much going on that my mind is one big clutter ball. (Clutter ball? I just made that up.) But really, I’ve been a tornado of ideas and thoughts and goals and tasks and AHHHHH! […]

With only 24 days until I get the amazing privilege of teaching yoga on the beach I realized that I’m not quite beach-ready. Although I won’t be swimming in the sea I will be meditating in the sand and doing as many inversions as humanly possible and I want to feel as healthy as can […]

Setting intentions for your yoga practice.

Heartfelt happiness- yogaing like a boss

One of my challenges to myself is to take as many yoga classes as I can. I want to learn everything that I can. There is nothing better as a yoga instructor to take classes from other instructors. You gain so much wisdom and insight from those that have been at it longer than you. […]
