HELLO! So I’m really glad to hear that everyone has a very similar sentiment regarding 2016 as I do – It was a challenge and seemed like the Universe was always trying to kick us while we’re down. We’re so all in this together! To be fair, I knew the beginning of 2016 was going to be rough, but I got lucky and made it through. I’ve definitely let my dedication to health and working out slip through the cracks (I’m blaming my knee injury and a few other things) but I feel like things are on the way up,…

You know I love a good book review! I discovered this book when my friend Jodi posted an assortment of books available at one of my favorite stores in Downtown Bangor – Good Soul! I arranged a time to come down and check out the selection with my dear friend & shop owner, Tracy. Tracy has a heart of gold, and a wild, caring, wonderful soul. We connect on so many levels!

Ok – so this topic was easy to determine, because I am home sick today, and this product has SAVED MY LIFE over the past year or so, when I found out about it. I grew up in Florida, and I never suffered from allergies until the summer of 2015. And then they were BRUTAL. I was waking up every morning and had to deal with whatever nastiness my body wanted to develop overnight. It got so bad that I had to use an inhaler when hiking! So glamorous. I went to see a few different docs, to have a…

A Lesson in Breath and Breathing OK – so I started an AWESOME new hobby/exercise this month¬†thanks to my friend Caitlin. (Caitlin – if you’re reading this – YOU ROCK SISTER!). I had a facebook status up that I was making it a goal to get back into shape and commit to working out ¬†starting NOW, since I’ve fallen so far off the wagon after my brutal knee injury. It’s been a long, hard road and I have the tightest hamstrings known to humans – but I’m learning about my body in a whole new way and learning how to…
