Gone to the beach!

I’m out at the Jersey Shore this week with my boyfriend’s family. I’ve decided that instead of writing blog posts, I’m going to read Boys on the Boat (my current book club choice!), take long walks along the beach just after sunrise, play a round of nine holes and a round of pirate mini-golf, squeeze […]

The key to confidence: take action

Yesterday on my Facebook page, I posted: Today I taught my first real yoga class: one hour of teaching strangers how to stretch their bodies and calm their mind in exchange for money(!). Last week, I had a meltdown while trying to teach my boyfriend the sequence–so much so that I couldn’t even finish the class, […]
