I found this photo online today and it really resonated with my current mood. Today I committed to a 30 day yoga challenge and what I found out was, it felt GREAT!

The first day was a 30 minute routine with your basic positions and flows. Could I do everything perfectly? No. But it felt amazing as I worked through the routine and focused on my breathe and moving with intention.

By the end, beads of sweat were gently rolling down the side of my face and down the curve of my back. But it felt good. It wasn’t that gross kind of wore out, beat to the bone, out of breathe sweat.

It was a feeling of success and renewed strength. It felt good.

Really good.

I want…


Why is there never enough time to do what you want to do?

The days are too short and filled with obligations and chores.

I want to play. I want to relax in the shade of a forest of trees, watching as the creatures of said forest play themselves.

I want to create. I want to enjoy the creative process without feelings of criticism, mostly from myself. I want to be able to spend hours upon hours creating.

I want to read more. I want to get caught up in another world and become so familiar with the characters that I forget they’re not “real”.

I want to walk along the ocean shore on the most perfect late afternoon and hang out until sunset. And when the sun does begin to set, I want the light to play with the clouds in such a way that it creates a magical, evolving canvas of beauty.

I want to actually enjoy a thunderstorm. I want to smell the rain and feel the breeze as the storm passes through.

I want to feel alive, not just present. How do we balance our responsibilities and our desires? How can we enjoy our existence while also maintaining our financial obligations?

I want to feel alive.
Not just “be” alive.




2 years ago we rode this ferris wheel on a wonderful, relaxing day hanging out together.

Tonight we rode VIP at night and got engaged! How crazy! And wonderful.
