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

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 […]

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 […]

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, […]
