Buddha Baby #2

I will be 4 weeks postpartum come this Monday and took today as an opportunity to write about how things have been going. With Lucas, Eric did not have paternity leave. In fact, Eric had conference calls at the hospital the day after Lucas was delivered. Thank you, thank you, thank you to his current job for offering paternity leave. What a blessing. Lucas is soooooo active and having the […]

Running, yoga, life at 32 weeks pregnant

“It is a journey, a long distance of revelation of self, of accomplishment and of failure” -Hal Higdon The other night I was going through some old photos and found this one of me in Greece staring at the Olympic track. This was around May 2014. I had just started training for my first marathon and I had also just started dating Eric. It was also the last vacation I […]

Resting, reflecting, and rejuvenating

 I am 31 weeks pregnant. After a week of being sick with a stomach bug for 3 days that forced me to be in bed for 2 days straight and that led to many emotions and reflection, I decided posting about the importance of stillness was something that inspired me. When I began yoga in college, I was craving a quiet place to listen and feel. I love movement. In […]

Doing what you love during pregnancy

Because the best things are often hard to come by, at least initially. And if you shy away from difficulty and discomfort, you’ll miss out on them entirely. Mastering a new skill is hard.

Every pregnancy is different and every woman is different but I am looking forward to sharing my personal experience/perspective. I will add a little backstory before I discuss my topics because I think it will […]

For my Dad

My father passed away last month and until now, sitting down and writing a blog post was too emotionally difficult for me. My father was a brilliant man, a man that gave to everyone before he gave to himself and who was 100 percent dedicated to his family and his purpose and passion of saving children’s lives in his field of work. Some of my most challenging times in my […]

A long time coming 

 I hardly know where to start for this post because it has been so long but it really feels good to finally be getting a chance to write. Between packing, unpacking, a half marathon race, the holidays and then getting a very intense cold, this post took a long time to finally happen.  Remember back on December 16th I raced a half marathon?😂 It seems a very long time ago.
