We have a new adventure up on our website! It’s all about beating the heat in Montpellier.
It’s also my first piece of travel writing, so I’m really excited to share it with you. Check it out at our website (link in bio), and let me know what you think!
While you’re there, make sure to check out the photo gallery and map from The Great Swiss Road Trip we took back in April.
To many expectations can sour the pie 🥧 .
#truthbetold , whenever I have an expectation of a person, place or thing I usually become disappointed because My expectations are usually too high.
I have learned to be realistic with what I think but also go with the flow, I like to call it “mossy ozzy”. So instead of thinking someone is going to be a certain way I allow them to show me who they really are. .
Instead of having high expectations that a vacation or a place is going to blow the socks off my feet, I simply take it all in one moment at a time and enjoy it for what it is. .

When you want more you go hard for the things you want in life...you isolate yourself and become one with you’re passion...you create visions by brainstorming then put it on paper...when it leaves your mind and goes on paper it becomes a goal..all goals must have #ACTION along with a #PLAN of execution ...all of us out here got visions ...goals & plans..but ain’t nobody putting in the effort start towards your goals today don’t wait on the next person or expect anything to be given to you go hard for what you want BELIEVE IN YOURSELF and execute you’re plan so in you’re 40s you can chill ...all gas no breaks ...and when they try to stop you they couldn’t even stop you if they stopped you #Motivationmondays#Vision#Goals#Plans#Execution#Noexpectations#chaseyourdreams#Allgasnobreaks
Two little girls knocked on our door last night to give me these very special gifts and I can’t even begin to tell you how happy it made me feel!
Maddie and Ellie, welcome home and thank you for these gifts! The cookies (as always)are the best cookies (thanks El! And Thanks to mommy too! @klsevern you have amazing kids!! Like AMAZING! Hats off to you!) Maddie, I am always amazed by your smartness and creativity. But what amazes me more is seeing the kindness that you have in your heart. (You and Ellie really made my night!) I love that we are very close and that we remained close even when we don’t see each other often anymore! (Thank God we have emails now!) Madz, you have no idea how much your impact is in my life! You have shown me genuine kindness in a very distinct and special way. It is not just in passing or just out of courtesy. You have shown me kindness in depth and in its very essence. You have reminded me that genuine intentions are always ever so important and that it is ever so easy to make this world a better place by choosing and showing kindness everyday. You have thought me kindness in a way nobody ever had. Pure intentions- that’s what it is! Because of you, I wake up each day and I challenge myself to be kinder! You make the world a better place and I promise you I am with you in this mission! (Haha! One kind act at a time!) You are really an amazing kid! I can’t wait for you to grow up!!! You will move the world!!! #maddienailedit#myfaveneighbors#kindnesscangoalongway#itmatters#itreallydoes#alligetfromyouiskindness#pureandgenuine#nohiddenintentions#noexpectations#myfavegift
Have you ever wondered what to expect on a meditation and yoga retreat? RELAX, and just see what happens, that's our aim here. We're here to guide you through different techniques and practices but the experience is your own. Ultimately you'll take away from here whatever you are ready for, whether it's a new daily practice, a technique that resonated with you that you want to incorporate into your life, inspiration to learn more or simply the experience of a restful few days in France. Let go of the expectations & pay attention to the experience as it happens...I promise we will feed you well along the way too 😜.

"You do not need to seek freedom in some distant land, for it exists within your own body, heart, mind, and soul. Illuminated emancipation, freedom, unalloyed and untainted bliss await you, but you must choose to embark on the inward Journey to discover it." BKS Iyengar
I used to seek freedom through solo travel, being my own boss, the single life, independence really. I also used to push the limits of the external experience, be it climbing a mountain as fast as i could or climbing the corporate ladder seeking validation through reward.
Over time, and consistent practice, I have found that true freedom lies within, and reflects in my choices, my behaviour and my ability to connect interestingly enough. I still embrace independence and embody the sense of freedom in every breath, every choice to smile, or to react or to evolve along this path.. What if embracing your freedom wasn't a rebellion as such but a means of putting YOU first, topping up your tank before throwing yourself into taking care of everyone else. It may mean committing to #31daysofyoga or as simple as taking the first 5-10 minutes of your day to sit for meditation, in silence with yourself.
