I am a mama living in the desert southwest. I love horseplay, yoga, mountains, fresh flowers and baking from scratch. We're all practicing, intentionally, or not. I'm on the journey to bring more grace, love and expansion into my practices and relationships. I appreciate the humans that share their stories so generously on this podcast and the listeners that choose to spend their time with us.
