The Right Stuff

I've climbed some of the biggest mountains around the world, from Alaska to the Alps to North India. Along the way I tested gear for Black Diamond, and learned early on that I had a small obsession for discovering the right approach, and the right tools, for every situation. This is a worthy challenge in mountaineering because the conditions are so variable, changing from day to day, and within each day as sun, wind, and precipitation constantly reshape your world. Today I have enough gear to outfit a small expedition, thanks in part to an especially adept climbing expert named…

Mommy Talk: Lessons from Baby Daisy

Hi Friends, I hope you all are well. I've written this particular note to you in my mind several times, and scrapped each draft in quest for a more useful, honest, and non judgmental message. I was certain (5 weeks ago) the topics I'm about to dive into could be covered in a simple "5 Lessons Learned" neatly-tied-up-type note. However, OMG I underestimated the profound nature and complexity of the iceberg I will humbly attempt to explore. Also, I'm sitting here with the most awesome baby Daisy passed out, milk drunk on my lap. I recognize how incredibly blessed, lucky,…

10 Healthy & Delicious Snack Ideas

10 Healthy & Delicious Snack Ideas

Hi Friends, I put together these recipes originally for Super Bowl snack ideas but they are tasty and pretty darn healthy no matter what sports season it is. Now that we have Daisy hanging around, I love preparing these go-to dishes and piling them up to have on hand for easy snacks and meals, especially for those times when she falls asleep on my chest for 3 hours or so and I need something to eat before I pass out too, (insert handfuls of Tree Pose Pouch) or for when we are playing for hours and there isn't extra time…
Super Duper Gentle Stretch

Super Duper Gentle Stretch

Hi Friends, Well I'm almost 40 weeks pregnant and any moment now this little lady will be ready to be let out onto the outside. My routine has evolved into super simple stretches, lots of meditation, as much quiet time as I can get, and a daily long walk. It's a pretty nice routine and I want to keep some of these practices going steady beyond pregnancy. A main lesson I've learned again and again with each phase of life is slowing down enough so its' possible to see what's happening and respond accordingly. I'm for sure guilty of running…

It Wasn’t Easy to Get Pregnant Until I Tried This. . .

Hi Friends, (originally sent out in the newsletter 8-24-16. make sure to get on the list for the latest updates.) Thank you for all the positivity and excitement and sweet words for our baby girl on the way. We're thrilled and pumped up, when I'm awake that is. Growing humans sure takes the mojo right out of you. But hey, that's ok. So, I wanted to share a bit of my lessons learned up until now, and happy to share my mistakes and trip-ups, so maybe you can save yourself some stress and time no matter what you're going through in your life. We…
