Vino & Vinyasa

I love yoga. I also love wine. So when I learned I could combine the two, I was sold. Drunk Yoga is a company that hosts—you guessed it—drunk yoga classes. So what does that mean exactly? Each class starts with a happy hour where you can enjoy a glass or two of wine while you […]

Quittin’ Time

From the time we’re little kids joining our first sports teams, we’re taught that “quitting” is a bad word.

I’m a little over a week late on posting my New Year’s resolutions…but better late than never! I wanted to take the time to put some real thought into them. While I definitely want to eat healthier and work out more (AKA the “typical” resolutions) there are a lot of other things I can do […]
