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.

So, I wasn’t originally going to write about this as my baking project, but after how much fun we had, I thought I should share. With how busy we’ve become since having a baby, we were fiercely protective of celebrating our anniversary. We even turned down jobs to keep the day open so we could celebrate together.

He did dinner and I did dessert.
