Are you listening?

      Comments Off on Are you listening?

Are you listening? I mean, really, truly listening?  Chances are, the answer to that question is no. And you’re not alone. I’ve failed to listen too.

On An Island

      2 Comments on On An Island

I wish this was about me physically being on an island, soaking in some sunshine, drinking a Pina Colada, and relaxing, but alas, that’s not quite the case. This is a different kind of island.

What a month, right? April brought many things, including moments of joy and moments of complete heartache. I turned another year older, held my first virtual yoga class, set boundaries with my team for working remotely, celebrated Easter virtually with family, and mourned the loss of my cousin while isolated alone. It’s hard to wrap my head around everything, but… Read more »

I love essential oils. That’s something that you may or may not know about me. They are a part of my daily life in a multitude of ways. From my warm lemon water when I first wake up, to my morning and evening skincare routine, and down to the blend going in my diffuser while I sleep, it’s a part… Read more »
