Some people look under their child's bed to make sure there are no monsters. Yesterday I looked under Eliza's bed knowing I would find a lifetime of cherished memories packed away gathering dust. Some I would choose to hold onto but most I would donate in hopes they would come back to life after spending years buried in the dark. It was my very own version of Toy Story, where the toys come to life after being liberated. The scope of letting go in my life is an enormous projec
A baby step in the right direction is still a step, right? Today I donated 2 bags to AVDA.

Why isn't anybody wearing yoga pants? What have I done to myself?
Having spent a month at Soulshine I got quite
They say,"When the going gets tough, the tough get going". My definition of "going" is either yoga, baking or writing. If I was at home, I'd be in the kitchen making my vegan chocolate chip cookies. I haven't done the morning practice this week due to reinjuring my rib surfing so I've been listening to my body and doing my yoga off the mat with a walk or some quiet time.
