There’s been a lot of bad things happening in our nation and world lately. And with each horrific headline, I’m brought back to my all time favorite quote, spoken by Mahatma Gandhi: Be the change that you wish to see in the world. These are words that I have chosen to strive to live my life by, and… Continue reading My First Give Away!
Recently, I was hired to do a yoga photo shoot for a local marketing company. It was less than a week after my marathon, which in case you didn’t read about, I massively negative split, and PR’ed not only my marathon time by 44 minutes, but also my half marathon time in the second half of… Continue reading My First Professional Yoga Photo Shoot
Today I ran the Natural Bridge Cavern Half Marathon Trail Run – the world’s only half marathon to begin in the belly of a cave. It was my third time to run this race and as before, it didn’t disappoint! There was something special about today though – my friend David ran with me and… Continue reading Natural Bridge Cavern Half Marathon Trail Run
Recently I went to Boerne Lake with a few friends for some sunset/full moon SUP Yoga (Stand Up Paddleboard). You may recall that I’ve done this before on the Guadalupe/Comal Rivers in New Braunfels (here & here). It was an awesome experience and was the night of the Blue Moon a few weeks ago. It… Continue reading Fruit Thief: A True Story About a Closet Vegan
Just a random post here to talk about “crazy.” So besides the obvious (3 under 3)… Mmmm… First, I am crazy for agreeing to take all the kids to the beach for a day trip to the coast. It turned out awesome, but still a wild adventure. We left at 5am and not two hours into the trip we… Continue reading Craziness!
Before I get started with a Yoga Teacher Training (YTT) update, I first want to say THANK YOU for all of the incredible baby boy name suggestions! You all are amazing and came up with tons of fabulous names! I’ve had a few folks ask what they get if we ultimately select their name suggestion, and… Continue reading Yoga Teacher Training Update
Remember back when I mentioned wanting to do some actual crafts, instead of using my crafting cravings for evil solely to “craft in the kitchen” (i.e. making cookies, donuts, ice cream, you know, all the pregnant lady cravings)? Well, I scoured pinterest and that’s where I came up with my last craft – the lavender eye pillows. And… Continue reading More (yoga-ish) Crafts!
I remember back ten years ago when I naively thought that “yoga is just stretching.” It has taken a very long time for me to slowly evolve – to begin to understand the true meaning of yoga. And even now after 9 years of practicing, I’m still learning what yoga is and what it means… Continue reading Yoga Teacher Training Eve
I’ve been feeling crafty – not sure if that’s a pregnancy symptom or not, but lately I’ve been using my craftiness for evil – that is, in the kitchen (homemade vegan gummy bears, ice cream, cookies, etc). And. I. Need. To. Stop! I need to use my craftiness instead for something besides calorie consumption! Sooooo…I… Continue reading Long Time No Craft
Today, about a month shy of two and a half, Landri took her first yoga class. It was a great experience, although it didn’t go quite as well as I had imagined, LOL, and we had to step out a little early! I’m wondering how much of that is due to the fact that she had no… Continue reading Kids Yoga & Yoga Teacher Training!
