  • Weekend: I Taught Yoga in the Middle of the Mall + Your Mom’s Donuts


    This was a really great weekend. A perfect balance between restful and energizing as well as downtime and social time. I took myself for a lunch date at Chopt on Friday afternoon while I was out running errands. This was one of their most popular salads, Braised Chicken Tinga. It's a warm topping salad with [...]

  • Monday in the Life + Scenes from the Weekend


    Monday is always a crazy but fun start to the week for me. I train clients at 5:30 and 6:30 a.m. and then head to the studio to teach at 8:15 a.m. and usually take the class after to get my practice out of the way while I'm already sweaty. I shower and head back [...]

  • Updates + Summer Loving Eats


    Happy Monday! I started my week off with 5:30 and 6:30 a.m. clients before coming home to this cutie. Sullie has a case of the Mondays and is being a little lazy but I am ready go GO! That my be in part thanks to the fact that I'm working on my second grande dark [...]

  • Recent Eats (All Over the Place!) + Digital Fatigue


    I hope you're all enjoying the weekend. I didn't get a chance to check in yesterday because the first copy deadline for my book is April 1 and I have been covered up trying to knock that out. I was out with a friend last night and she asked how I was doing. I replied [...]

  • Snow Week Eats + Earthquake!


    Happy weekend! This was such an off week with all the snow. I didn't leave my house for almost 48 hours and almost all of my clients and classes were cancelled for the week. I was so ready to finally get out of the house and go teach on Friday afternoon. It was time. Speaking [...]

  • Here Comes the Snow + Recent Eats + Snacking Before Dinner


    Good morning! Rise and shine! It is going to snow in Charlotte today but just a light dusting with no ice so it should be fun. The weather is absolutely nuts because on Monday it was 65 degrees and I ran in shorts and a tank. This morning it's 28 and going to snow. Winters [...]

  • Celebrating National Ice Cream Day + Weekend In Photos


    A photo heavy look at the last couple of days of friends, food and ice cream. Late night dinner of cheese, crackers, fruit, meats and wine on Friday after the acro yoga workshop. I'm having this again for dinner tonight! I am fairly certain that I could live off of cheese and meat plates. We [...]

  • Sustainability


    I'm back in Charlotte but only for a few days before I take off on my next adventure. Details to come on that later this week but I should have lots of good stuff to share with you from my upcoming travels. The past few weeks have been really crazy and stressful on both personally [...]

  • Weekend In Photos


    Why do the weekend pass so quickly? It was a beautiful 75 degrees here in Charlotte on Saturday and Sunday. The kind of weather that makes you smile and take a deep breath when you feel the sun on your face. Here's my weekend in photos. Friday night furniture building party with chicken parm, roasted [...]

  • Addictively Delicious Gooey Baked Camembert


    One of my favorite things to do at Whole Foods is browse their cheese selection (especially when they are offering samples!). Before Christmas I picked up two really great cheeses. One was Yodeling Goat Gouda and the other Herve Mons Camembert, made exclusively for Whole Foods. I ate enjoyed both over the course of the [...]

  • Sunday Evening Entertaining


    Hope your Monday and final week before Christmas is off to a great start! While I am being a bit of a scrooge about getting in the holiday shopping spirit (yep, still haven't started), I am enjoying the opportunity to spend time with friends and family. Last night we had friends over for dinner and [...]

  • Valentine’s Dinner and Honeymoon Memories


    Good morning! I hope everyone had a wonderful Valentine's Day! Before I launch into the Valentine's recap, a quick update on how I'm feeling after my face plant. I was in a lot of pain when I woke up yesterday. The left side of my lower back hurt so much that I couldn't bend forward [...]
