Happy Holidays Friends!
I love this season! It’s a time when we celebrate and share our love with family and friends. Its a time for gratitude, giving, and merry making.
If you follow me on Instagram, you might have already seen some of my holiday photos. I wanted to share them with you in this space, as a Merry Christmas card blog post. Just a little slice of my life: the people I love and the memories I am grateful for. <3

Christmas morning run December 25, 2014. A lot of people talk about exercise during the holidays as a way to “burn off the cookies”. I think this type of mindset is negative and sets you up for a lifetime of yo-yoing with your body, diet, holidays, and self. Exercise should be a way to celebrate your health, NOT as a form of punishment. So this holiday season I invite you to view movement as a gift. As a way to live a more positive, powerful life inside and out. As a way to be more present in your relationships with others and with yourself. And as a way to have the energy and strength to enjoy every moment. My Christmas wish for you is a healthy relationship to yourself and to your life. Wishing you happiness and a lifetime filled with joyful movement.
Love my new sweater: Santa knows me too well 😉

Going through all of these photos was such a wonderful way to reflect on the season and all the people I have to be grateful for. May you know just how lucky I feel to have you in my world. Thank you for continuing to support me in living the bold and brave life of my dreams! Happy holidays to you and yours, may your days be filled with health and your heart filled with happiness. Sending you all my love and blessings, looking forward to sharing a bright new year with you.
