A vision turned reality

    0
Right before Thanksgiving, I moved out of my apartment in Charleston, packed my car and drove back to Atlanta to see the family for the holiday. At that time, there was a good chance I would be moving so while it was smart to end my apartment lease and pack up, nothing was completely set in stone. Because of this, I didn’t really tell too...

Debunking Self Love Myths & BS – Video blog

    0
Let's be real for a moment. Who hasn't given an eye roll to the term self care or self love at least once in your life? Yep, me too. I used to think it was a bunch of crap. To me, it sounded like an excuse to act like a selfish jerk and perpetuate the narcissistic society that surrounds us. Boy, was I wrong though....

Bali Musings

    0
Below are simply my musings on Bali. I loved and enjoyed my time there and would go back again but I think it’s important to look at the impact that tourism has on small islands that lack the resources and infrastructure to keep up with the demand and investment pouring into it. Bali is an interesting place. It is just one of thousands of Indonesian...

It does get cooked down some. I’d say (granted, I’m no doctor) you’re probably safe for a few sips come third trimester!

Build Back Strength with Yoga – free printable PDF

    0
In yoga, we are always trying to build flexibility in the spine. We are always twisting, bending, and folding in all sorts of direction. While flexibility is important for the spine, it is also important to build strength to protect the back. We often sit using back rests and do not naturally form the muscles necessary for even basic functions, leading to a lot of...

A few days in the Balinese Jungle

    0
After 3 days of relaxing in the beach town of Canggu, Bali we headed to the jungle town of Ubud for the next three days. Ubud is only around 40 miles and 1-1.5 hours from Canggu but the landscape is vastly different. It is in the middle of the rain forest and it has much more of a laid-back, vegan and yoga vibe. It is...

“Write a blog,” they said. “It’ll be great,” they said.

Greetings and welcome to my blog. If you’re reading this you’re probably a good friend of mine or maybe an old friend/classmate/colleague that I haven’t talked to in years save for a few Instagram likes and Facebook comments. You may even be a new friend trying to figure out where I lie on the crazy spectrum. It’s okay, I probably have stalked or will stalk...

Why We Have a Love Hate Relationship With Social Media

    1
Why is it that we love to take pictures, yet hate pictures were taken of us? Why is it that we are quick to point out the flaws of others but fight to defend our own flaws? Why do we seek friends and likes in social media, yet, we demonize social platforms?It is because we tend to love others and hate ourselves. We either put...

The Sun

    5
Mae Ra Moe, Thailand. 2018.  Today, once again, from a tent on a beach, at 6:42am, I watched with amazement, the sun presenting itself to the day, as each time is the first time. It reminds me of the opportunity we have as people to enter the day, brand new, with style and grace. There were hues of light blue, purple, orange, and pink that...

Side Tripped Out

Really the only kind of problem I’ve ever had is a first world problem. Maybe the one that sounds the most ridiculous is that I’m exhausted from side tripping. But looking back, it’s been an amazing two weeks. Joey visited (!!!), we went to Phuket & Phi Phi, and it was an absolute dream to travel together and explore these beautiful places. Ok, in reality...

Retrospective Feb 11 – 24

  A lot of people in our industry haven’t had very diverse experiences. So they don’t have enough dots to connect, and they end up with very linear solutions without a broad perspective on the problem. The broader one’s understanding of the human experience, the better design we will have. — Steve Jobs Last week was missing a post because I decided to switch to a...

A DAY IN HIROSHIMA & MIYAJIMA

    1
Leveled by an atomic bomb in 1945, a visit to Hiroshima provides invaluable insight into the devastation the city and its people faced, while also providing a sobering reminder of the dangers of nuclear warfare, a reminder that seems more pertinent than ever in recent months. Just off the coast from the city, the island of Miyajima offers small town charm and is home to...

Food is a Journey

Dining at Siete Fuegos last night was a beautiful experience for many reasons. Almost least of which was the food… A 90 minute drive from our home meant we had to be serious about it from the start. Our driver Fernando was the perfect person to share stories of the wineries, industry, people and landscape of Mendoza. He’s grown up here and has spent 20...
