The holiday season is beginning and I’m seeing the gift idea blog posts popping up in my news feed.

But IRead more about The Gift That Will Last My Son a Lifetime: A Pineapple Upside Down Cake?[…]
I felt so much noise buzzing in my head and body lately and couldn’t really HEAR myself.
My yoga instructor invited us to take 10 minutes a day to fill up this week.
I decided to take her up on that and go a tad further:

These are the words that flowed out of me on the third day…
