February Newsletter: Paying Attention

Hi friends, happy February! So we got a new fridge, the fancy kind that beeps when you leave a door open. For most people, this is a cool and helpful feature. For me, it has been the most obnoxious daily reminder of just how many times I do things without actually paying attention. If you’ve […]

January Newsletter: Keep these 5 things in mind

Freedom: From the Inside Out

Hi friends, welcome to July! I can practically smell the BBQ, sunscreen, and humidity, see the fireworks, and hear “Proud to be an American” in my mind. Ironically enough, on a month marked by a celebration of independence, I admit I’ve been feeling the very opposite of liberated. Turns out, I have placed an enormous […]

If you live in Houston, it’s probably felt like summer since April. Nevertheless, the true summer solstice is Wednesday, June 21st, and we’re planning to celebrate it with a wholelotta sun salutations. 108 to be exact. Why 108, you ask?

Embracing Change

“To journey without being changed is to be a nomad. To change without journeying is to be a chameleon. To journey and to be transformed by the journey is to be a pilgrim.” – Mark Nepo Hi friends, welcome to June! I am just settling back in after a crazy fun weekend in Sarasota, Florida […]
