Of the moment // 5.30.14

One of the reasons why I blog is simply to have the space to write: getting things “on paper” helps me to process my feelings and organize my thoughts. I also love having a record of my life over the past few years: a place that holds all of my...

Postcard from Memorial Day Weekend

Last weekend marked the unofficial start to summer, and honestly, it was one of my favorite weekends in the city to date. Maybe we've just been cooped up for too long--and to be fair, I've spent just about every weekend in the yoga studio since...

Passion Passport Twitter Chat: Road Trips!

Interesting fact about me: I hate driving, but I love a road trip. I grew up in California--that automobile utopia--and have spent a significant amount of my life in traffic and a hefty amount of money on gas, maintenance and car insurance. One of my...
