What I’m Up To

Hi friends, just wanted to check in to see how you’re doing, and share what I’ve been up to lately (that is, in between moments of wanting to pull my hair out and taking Bella for her 100th walk of the day around the block.) What I’m reading: Untamed by Glennon Doyle. You guys, this […]

Our New Normal

Dear friends, I hope this letter finds you heathy and well. I can’t believe only 4 weeks ago I was sharing thoughts on my Costa Rican getaway, just another reminder to take nothing for granted and that change really is the only constant.

Practicing Yoga on Vacation

Hi friends welcome to March! Dave and I went on a quick getaway to Costa Rica last month, and I’m still dreaming of beaches, rainforests, and sloths (they are so cute in real life, and we even got to see a mama sloth hanging with her baby!) The trip was exactly what I needed to […]

Know your Why

Hi friends, happy February! Baby M turned 6 months a few weeks ago, and I decided it was time to start sleep training.

We hosted Dave’s company party at our house on Saturday, had our […]

November Newsletter: compassion over judgement

Hello friends, welcome to November! A few weeks ago I went in to Favor the Kind (a boutique in the Heights) to buy my friend a birthday gift. I had Lucas with me because he insisted he wanted to go with mommy, and I agreed against my better judgement because I just couldn’t say no […]

October Newsletter: Moving past your comfort zone

Hi friends, welcome to October! A few days ago, I asked Lucas if he wanted me to change his diaper in his room or in the living room where he was playing (we’re working on choices so he doesn’t just say “no”!) His response: “I want to sit in the poop.” I laughed and shook my […]

September Newsletter: My Birthday Gift!

Hi friends, welcome to September! On the 13th of this month I will be turning one year older, and to celebrate, I’m giving myself the best gift ever! Before I tell you what that is, let me back up a bit. This summer, I began reflecting on the next steps for Yogaleena and my own growth as a […]
