A Whole Month of Yoga: Reflections

Hello, lovelies! As you know, I am about to embark on the journey of yoga teacher training. It starts in 19 days! I'm feeling like I'm not adequate. That my yoga isn't "advanced" enough.

Reflections of Myself: Past, Present, Future

Hello, lovelies! I've been readingĀ Are You There, God? It's Me, Margaret by Judy Blume lately. I started a reading challenge with my best friend and her husband at the beginning of the year.

What Vegetarianism Is Not

Hello, lovelies! Today's post will be short but sweet. Ever since starting this blog, I tossed around the idea of getting published on other sites, magazines, and other written word platforms.

Sugar Bender Into Spring

Confession: I have not done well on my cutting back on sugar goal. Last week I wrote about cutting back significantly on my sugar intake. This week was not the best testament to that goal.

108 Sun Salutations

Hello, lovelies! Sorry for the lack of blog posts the past two weeks. The holidays had us in Pennsylvania, traveling after tornadoes, and party hopping New Years Eve weekend. Super fun, but this introvert has been exhausted. I spent a good chunk of yesterday on the couch, watching TV, recharging, and napping. (It was glorious.) … Continue reading 108 Sun Salutations

Not Eating Meat: My Journey

Hello, lovelies! I've always been a fan of New Year's Resolutions. I don't always stick to them, but I like the idea behind them.
