  • Ohhhhh Mexico…20 Photos from our 2017 Yoga Retreat

    { 20 comments }

    We just arrived home from our yoga retreat in Mexico late last night. There was a ground stop in Charlotte on Wednesday evening due to some crazy storms so we were diverted to Jacksonville, Florida. The initial plan was for us to deplane and go through customs in JAX but thankfully they kept us on [...]

    Happy Leap Day! Some fun facts… Nearly 113 million Americans (35%) nationwide think Leap Day should be a federal holiday. Nearly half the country (46%) would be more likely to get something productive done, rather than relax, during their extra day. More than a quarter (26%) of Americans nationwide admit to thinking that because Leap [...]

    Good morning from beautiful Zoetry Agua in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic! We arrived on Wednesday for our fourth annual Y2 Yoga retreat and our third trip to Zoetry Agua.

  • My Vacation Food Philosophy

    { 27 comments }

    How I eat on vacation can be summed up pretty simply…whatever I want! I consider vacations (and girl’s weekends and quick getaways) to be sacred me time and I allow myself to let loose a little and eat, drink, sleep as I please. This goes back to my childhood. My family always spent two weeks [...]

  • Recent Eats: Vacation Edition

    { 14 comments }

    My eats over the last few days will definitely be different (and so much more beautiful!) than what you are used to seeing. One of the best things about Zoetry resorts (I’ve now stayed at the one in Punta Cana twice, Puerto Moreles once and there is one more in Cabo that I haven’t visited) [...]

  • Arriving and Exhaling

    Hola from Mexico! My alarm went off at 4:45 a.m. and I happily bolted out of bed to get ready for an early flight. We have a great airport in Charlotte and I knew there would be lots of good breakfast options. It was nice not to have to choke down breakfast at home at [...]

  • A (Very) Long (And Eventful) Trip Home

    { 35 comments }

    Today has been a whirlwind of catching up. I am so grateful that I had the opportunity to attend my friend’s destination wedding in Punta Cana but it made for a lot of travel in five days! Yesterday was a 14 hour comedy of errors in getting home and I have to share it with [...]

    I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving and enjoyed family, friends and feasting. If you’re out braving Black Friday I am wishing you warmth and good luck! :) My Thanksgiving was a bit unconventional this year. One of my dearest friends is getting married this weekend in the Dominican Republic. She and her fiance are [...]

  • A Day in the Vacation Life…

    { 20 comments }

    Good morning and happy Tuesday! Some of you have inquired about exactly what this trip is that I’m on. It’s a yoga retreat through the studio back home where I teach and practice. There are 24 of us who traveled down here together to yoga and vacation. Basically, adult spring break. We practice twice a [...]
