Finding Roots – A Sweet Two Years

Today is the second anniversary of writing Finding Roots! When I started this blog, I didn’t know what to expect, or who would really read it. It turned into a vulnerable, beautiful process allowing me to be connect with others, find myself and be honest. Below are the top five posts of my blog that helped bring me […]

A Look Back at Sexy, Party, WOW, a Flashback and Trust

 This is my past week in photos and some of the lessons I’m experiencing. My high school friend/faithful yoga partner and I kicked off trying to get back into a yoga routine.
