    Release & Repattern

    If you think you’re out of second chances, think again. With every breath… every encounter… every action and reaction… you have a choice. You can choose to feel stuck, or you can decide to find a way out. It’s that simple. No matter how low you feel, no matter how…

    Surfboards and Straw Hats

    In my mind, I’m the chick in the Athleta catalog with the easy smile and spontaneous spirit, my dog and surf board and straw hat beside me in the Jeep as we head from the beach to the mountains on our next adventure. I try to relax and get closer…
