In the past few months, I’ve spent a lot of my free time in the early morning or the evenings at a fabulous yoga studio. I’ve seen benefits in my mental health and also in my performance in the gym! When the opportunity came along to partner up with some great ladies and wonderful companies…

Blogs, Bods, and Barbells

I don’t exactly know why it happens, but if I stray away from posts for a day or so, that day turns into a week and suddenly I’m dreading going back to blog-land because it’s like I’ve forgotten how to live here. But that isn’t the case, so never fear my blog-land peeps, I haven’t…

My Word For 2016: Savor

Savor. Not Savior. Because I’ve definitely already had the mix up occur. Now that that’s out of the way, I will happily own that I haven’t quite nailed down my goals for 2016. And I’m okay with that. But I was able to decide on my word of the year. Similarly to how our cats…

Bring On The Eggnog!

T-minus two days until the jolly ole’ man squeezes his furry self and his giant sack down the chimney. Growing up in Hawaii, Santa came in through the lanai (outdoor porch) because well, we had no need for a fireplace, therefore no need for a chimney. At this point we are hunkered down with my in-laws…
