Aligning Your Chakras with Your Intentions and how Yoga can help (guest post)

  Yoga is a practice used to harmonize the body with mind and breath through a series of physical postures, breathing exercises, and meditation.  At the beginning of each yoga class, it is common to set an intention for the practice, which acts as a metaphor to translate your practice off your mat and into your life.  Specifically, an intention brings awareness to a quality or virtue you wish to cultivate both on and off your mat.  Examples include love, forgiveness, letting go, self-compassion, grounding, and balance.  This intention can ultimately be a vehicle that makes yoga an aspect of your lifestyle, rather than something you do just for exercise.  Chakras are energy centers within your body that are responsible...

Who wants to bet this is another fruitcake? Hands up if you have ever regifted a present.  I know I have.

How do you feel about your gifts getting re-gifted?  If you don’t care then I am going to be bold and accuse you of giving up on being an amazing gift giver.It's never too late to learn...

Confessions of a Proud Instagram Loser

On Halloween my mother in law came for a visit. It's a super fun time for her to come and see the kids in their sugared-up and dressed-up glory.  I'm really lucky, my mother in law is easy to get along with.  While she was here, I felt guilty working when the kids were at school.   I felt like I was having half-conversations with her as I had one eye on whatever I was working on.

After the meeting, we went for coffee and sat outside enjoying the...
