  • Sunday Morning Coffee Chat: Life, Love and Running

    { 25 comments }

    I hope your Sunday morning is off to a beautiful start. I just poured a cup of coffee and took that magical first sip and thought I'd sit down and write a coffee chat post since it's been many months since I've done so. If we were chatting over coffee I would share...that last week [...]

  • The First Birthday

    { 39 comments }

    I wrote a post this morning with a short recap of my Thursday, a story of comparison and running that came up for me after my last post, some recent eats and a shout out about my friend Teri's blog. It's been sitting in drafts ever since. I wrote the post and then I was [...]

  • Moving Through, Part Three

    { 36 comments }

    I am really struggling with how to continue on with my day-to-day life and work responsibilities while feeling so sad (and so many other feelings) on the inside. There's like this blurred filter between my inside and the outside world. When it comes to teaching yoga, 50% of the time I feel grateful to be [...]

    Monday marked two weeks since my brother's death. It was a hard day for me. I'll say the same thing to you guys that I said to my Monday morning yoga class, this shit is hard. And I just can't be a cheerleader right now. I don't really know what else to say other than [...]

    I was about halfway through teaching a yoga class this morning when I realized that I was there, but I wasn't all there. I was in it, but I wasn't bringing much for my students. I was saying all the words right and teaching a well-sequenced class but I felt an emptiness that's not usually [...]

    I can't even begin to express my thanks for your outpouring of love and support. It's been a comfort to read your emails, comments and messages and I'm so sorry to learn that many of you have also experienced the terrible effects of addiction in your own lives. I hope it's something that we can [...]

  • Loss

    I apologize for the disappearing act over the last week. I'm currently in the middle of a 10-hour road trip back to Charlotte after spending the last five days in Florida with my family. On Monday, September 19 at 11 p.m. I received phone call from my mom that my little brother Will had passed away. [...]

  • The Story Of A Year

    { 120 comments }

    Blogging is a tricky thing with a lot of blurred lines on how much is too much information to share. I started blogging almost five years ago on my (now neglected) recipe blog Bakin' and Eggs. Although I did include some personal stories in that blog, the main focus of my posts was to share [...]
