Fun Deliveries and Faves + Hide The Snacks!

Happy Friday! I wanted to write this post first thing this morning but a security plugin on my blog somehow flagged me and denied me access to my own site. My email chain with my tech guru Isaac is about 20 deep right now. I seriously don't know what I would do without him...probably quit [...]

Up Next: Prenatal Yoga Teacher Training + A Big Trip!

Good morning! Wednesday mornings are one of my favorites of the week because I don't teach until 10:30 a.m. It's so nice to sleep in a bit and then spend a few quiet hours working while I sip on my coffee...especially since Tuesdays tend to be a little jam-packed. Yesterday was no exception and I [...]

Despite the fact that I've emerged from the weekend with some sort of funky chest cold, we had such a fun and relaxed time.
