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.
I was going to yoga quite a bit before getting pregnant with my daughter, but that immediately stopped with how sick I became during that pregnancy. After my post partum rest period, I tried a Groupon here and there but I really decided to commit to self-care through a regular yoga practice late last summer. So I wanted to write a little bit about the progress I’ve made in the past year and a few of the things I’ve learned along the way: Continue reading

I was once told that I was a “whirling mass of contradictions” and that phrase has always stuck with me. Continue reading

Cultivate What Matters: Finance Guide

When the Cultivate What Matters team announced their Summer Collection, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on their new Finance Guide. After the past few years being really difficult financially between medical expenses, my own lack of work with being so sick while pregnant and committing to nursing my daughter, and my husband’s former job being a toxic work environment, it has taken us a while to start to get back on our feet and it has been an exhausting journey that has made me want to throw in the towel sometimes. It has felt like the epitome of little by little progress to get out of medical debt- not even little by little, more often microscopic… so my husband and I were ready to dive in together and re-focus on our finance goals with this little guide… Continue reading
