Revisiting Houston

DSC_0071Houston round two happened this past weekend, and it seems a tradition of visiting Agora has begun.  I fell in love with this coffee shop the first step I took inside, all the charm of a little log cabin, nestled in the middle of a city.

It was a quick weekend, filled with wedding and early Thanksgiving celebrations. I had lots of plans for photo taking, and not much time. We took these photos in the parking lot behind Agora on our last day in town. Not sure when the next trip is, but I’m hoping sometime early next year :)DSC_0052 DSC_0086

The 2-year-old has a rare chromosome abnormality that causes him to have hypotonia, which reduces muscle strength and makes it difficult to walk. Because Kai and his walker are so small, Knapp had difficulty finding ways to make the device unique. How touching? Check out the full story here.

Mid November

DSC_0270 How is it even a thing that we’re already halfway through November? Between friends and family visiting, trips to LA and work I’ve barely had time to breath (let alone blog). Things have been pretty nonstop, and I don’t expect them to slow down until next year.

Fast moving time aside, I’m looking forward to upcoming festivities as 2015 comes to a close. Trips to Houston, Maryland, and Columbus are all in my future.

Therapeutic Yoga Teacher Training

Screen Shot 2015-11-10 at 9.46.25 AMRemember that career goal I talked about back in March? After accepting a position at my current place of employment and moving across the country, I honestly thought it was out the window for at least a year.

I am beyond thrilled (and still somewhat in disbelief) to announce that I will actually be attending the therapeutic yoga teacher training I had originally set eyes on in January! The program is through Soma Yoga Institute and is taught by an incredible international yoga teacher and therapist named Liz Heffernan. I am incredibly excited to study with her, and to bring this practice back to my current job, and to take the next step towards my goal of becoming a yoga therapist!Screen Shot 2015-11-10 at 9.46.48 AM

Yoga Has Taught Me I // Yoga Has Taught Me II // Yoga Has Taught Me III
Street art is an important part of history and identity for many metropolises, and this photographer is working to keep that image intact. Patrick Verel, a journalist and photographer, has completed a series of case studies on graffiti in three American cities to illustrate why street art is important to keep urban areas and their residents energized and inspired. Compiling these studies in his newest book, Graffiti Murals: Exploring the Impacts of Street Art, Verel hopes to show how artists and building owners can come together to foster the creation of artwork that can be viewed as beautifying and reviving a city, rather than destroying it. The photos are truly stunning, check them out here.
