Managing Email in an Email Crazy World

I love email. I love both sending and receiving them. I love the excitement of pressing the send button. I love the feeling when I get a new email that I’ve been anticipating.

With that said, the days I get the least done seem to be the days I check my email the most. The days that are the most productive, happiest, and in the now are the days where I check it the least.

Email. It can be addicting, hitting the refresh button. And it can distract us…

The Authentic + Passionate life IS the Journey

Hey friends,

Let's jump right to it today.

I recently got into a somewhat heated conversation with a family member who doesn't quite agree with my approach to life.  He stated the following:

  • following one's passion can be fickle and unreliable;

  • instead of chasing one's passions we should just bring our passions into what we do;

  • young people idealize what they don't have;

  • following passions may not be practical depending on where they are in life;

  • learning how to delay gratification is more important that living with passion.

Why I'm Done Pursuing Balance


It's hard to believe that the summer solstice came and went, isn't it? That's because life seems to fly by for all of us.  I was thinking about it... I have dedicated my entire life to intentional living, wellness, and pursuing happy.  Not only is it the front and center of my personal life, but my entire brand (which is really just an extension of my identity) focuses on this. So, achieving balance which is "essential" for feeling good physically and mentally, should be somewhat easy for me, right?

It's not.

An Unplanned Break

Happy Monday! I hope you all had a great weekend.  I was busy shooting for a really rad lifestyle brand (can't wait to share with you!), as well as a ton of time with my husband and Bodie, and of course, the beach.  Today is shaping up to be a bit of a catch up day, which feels really good.  My trip to NY was delayed by a week due to my dad's surgery (he just had his second surgery for a subdural hematoma).  He is on complete rest so he needs a very quiet week.

Since I rescheduled my flight last minute, it has left me with a week of zero appointments or plans.

June Q+A

Hey friends,

Today I am answering some of the questions that were recently submitted to me on Instagram. I'm going to be doing these monthly or bimonthly (depending on the kind and amount of questions I receive).  Please send me your questions either in the comments or via email for next month.  Ask me about life, yoga, health, wellness, beach life, photography, or anything else!  

Here we go...

A Post with No Ending or Point

Hey friends!

This post is long overdue, and a fair warning, may be a little over the place.  I hate to say that I've been "too busy" to blog, but I truly have been too busy.  I've been pulled in a million different directions between motherhood and business.  In addition, we took a vacation last month, and then my dad ended up in the hospital.  I tried to keep everyone updated on Instagram, and appreciate all of the love and prayers we received.
