I am a passionate yogini and runner sharing my adventures of raising a son while living a simple and healthy lifestyle.


Humbling moments can become treasures

It is funny to write what I am about to say but it is 100 percent true:  ‘I have a difficult time remembering what it was like to be a runner prior to having a baby’😊 Lucas has strengthened me in so many ways that how I navigate through my day is consistently influenced by the impact he has made on my life. He is such an overwhelmingly beautiful, crazy, […]

Organized chaos?😚

I am two days late on this post because of sleepless nights, family time, and close to no spare time in the past week. We are getting ready for a busy fall.

Getting out of our […]
