Friendship Isn’t Linear

I’ve been thinking a lot about friendship recently. OK, that’s actually not a very new train of thought for me and I’ve been thinking about the importance of friendship for as long as I can remember, which is maybe why I chose to write an open letter to my Child(red)’s future friends instead of to a supposed spouse… but after this summer where I got to attend the weddings of two friends I’ve had for almost two decades, I’ve been specifically musing on the trajectories of friendship, and how they look a little different than my younger self would have guessed.

YOGA-VERSARY: A few things I’ve learned on the mat that make me a better person off the mat…

The end of July marked my one year anniversary of having a consistent yoga practice. I want to start this post by saying I am so thankful for all the teachers I’ve had over the past year, especially the ones with whom I got to work regularly enough that they knew how to push my practice forward and encourage me every step of the way.

(Plus, with all the travel we did last month, I’m not sure how much writing I would have done anyway!) Continue reading

Here’s to the misfits

I feel like a lot of my posts recently have been inspired by a few of my favorite quotes, but I think my mind has just been on over drive the past few weeks and they help to organize my thoughts so today I’m continuing that trend. I was once told that I was a “whirling mass of contradictions” and that phrase has always stuck with me. Continue reading
