A few Fall favorites 

We are in the middle of moving but I couldn’t pass up my desire to write a post. I have done quite a bit of yoga over the past few days. Perspective is everything and always gives me an opportunity to check in with what is important and authentic.  I also wanted to share some of my favorite things over the past few weeks. It is a fairly balanced blend […]

Moving and changing 

The last time we did a really big move was when Lucas was 4 months old and that was across state. This time it is only across town but nonetheless seems ever so challenging with a toddler.  But there is something that I love about moving. I have moved over 20 times. I have moved for school, work, relationships, travel or simply the desire to begin new. I don’t like […]

Moments 

In an effort to fully experience the moments I have with my child and husband, I have been spending less and less time with my phone in my hand. Refreshing? Absolutely  I am forever grateful that my parents offered me an amazing childhood. They gave me opportunities to find and feel my passions, to ride my bike for hours on end with my friends, to play make believe outside the […]

The beginning of October with my boys. 

I am in the car writing this because my son is asleep after he played for a couple of hours with his friends and I swam laps. I am loving how I feel swimming currently. As with many things, consistency makes us stronger. This is definitely true for swimming. I feel so much smoother moving through the water. My shoulders and hips are open because I have been doing quite […]

Being present 

“When you love someone, the best thing you can offer is your presence. How can you love if you are not there? “-Thich Naht Hanh My son teaches me this every day. An amazing gift that comes with childhood is play: The ability to explore and discover the world with open eyes in each moment. The other day at the park I watched Lucas climb the steps, cross a bridge, […]

A Magical Season 

I feel there is something so magical about the Season of Fall. Leaves change color and drop from the trees, the weather cools and there is the Autumn Harvest. For me, I feel most grounded during this Season. I feel at home and ready to slow down, cook a bit more and focus on creative projects.  Lucas and I have been in the kitchen a lot this week. It is […]

A few favorites from today 

We have a really busy schedule the next 10 days or so helping family out so I took today to try and do quite a few of Lucas’s favorite things. Below are the pics. The new playground we found was fantastic on all levels and we started out alone but within a half an hour, Lucas had 4 or 5 buddies to play with.  And I had a huge salad […]

Inspired to Share 

“The good life is one inspired by love and guided by knowledge”-Bertrand Russell  I began studying this week with IIN, also known as The Institute of Integrated Nutrition. I have studied quite a bit of nutrition in my life especially revolving around my yoga trainings but I feel this is a wonderful next step in learning more information about the holistic aspects of health and how I can implement them […]

As the weather cools down 

I have always loved Fall and we are so close, I can smell it in the air. It was a really busy Spring and Summer that I enjoyed immensely. But we moved fast and honestly, my body could use a bit of slowing down and I am looking forward to using Fall as an opportunity to do some creative projects with Lucas, much more writing, daily yoga and a combination […]

Beauty within the chaos….

I have been trying to write this post for a week now but my family is priority and two weekends ago, I had a family emergency. It stopped me instantly in my tracks, broke my heart wide open, and I spent over a week completely scared, and yet at the same time overwhelmingly blessed and humbled by my family. We are all so different and yet we individually offer special […]
