Today is the Pride Parade in my hometown Columbus, Ohio. My yoga studio got creative with sidewalk art to celebrate. Happy Pride!
Yep, this post is all about pants. Specifically, one pair of amazing pants. I was excited when prAna asked me to participate in their #7DayStretch challenge because I tried out their clothes for travel and loved them. PrAna’s clothes are comfortable, practical, and fashionable, especially for fitness and adventure enthusiasts. That is not an easy […]
