I'm craving yoga right now in a way that I haven't in years. It reminds me of my first year of practice and how I'd go to sleep every night, giddy with anticipation knowing I'd get to roll out my mat the moment I'd wake up. Every day was like Christmas morning. That feeling of excitement lasted about a year before routine took over and yoga became part of my normal. I turned my yoga practice into teaching and teaching into a career and along the way, I stopped feeling like I was unwrapping a...

So… Off we went. Dennis had a white truck parked in the parking lot and as I opened the door, soda cans and old subway wrappers fell out and into the street. Dennis didn’t seem to notice. “Time to clean the car?” I asked. “What? Oh yea? I guess.” Emelie rolled her eyes. “I can’t believe you’re taking me in some strangers car!!” she muttered. “And a dirty car at that!” She was feisty, that’s for sure. I dropped Emelie off at the hotel with the promise of all the sugar in all of the...

A love story. in General

My whole life I've been looking for a place to belong. For many years I was running; from boyfriend to boyfriend, country to country. I'd throw myself into relationships thinking they would save me. I hurt a lot of people along the way. The year before I met Dennis I was head over heels in love no less than four times. I'd meet someone, experience an electric connection, convince myself that this was "it"... And then completely forget about the guy the moment something else caught my attention. What I didn't understand was that I was...

Surrender to Trust in General

My biggest fear, aside from something happening to Poppy (always in the back of my mind), is that I won't be able to be a good mom. I'm terrified of putting any weight on her shoulders, of unconsciously passing on my pain to her. A part of me knows that this timing is divine and that everything I've ever been through has brought me here and that I'm ready. Ready to shower her with unconditional love without anything old clouding our bond. I'm ready for this love. I'm ready to be a mom. A part...
