What does a warrior mean to you?
I teach a vinyasa warrior flow in Colorado Sunday evenings and I always enjoy offering this question to the students in the beginning and end of class.
Most of the time in life that definition changes.
Sometimes being a warrior is just showing up to the mat, ready to take child’s pose and nothing more.
Other times being a warrior can be standing on the edge of your boundary limit to protect yourself and your energy.
Sometimes it’s keeping your heart open in moments you wish to close.
Other times, staying home to relax and restore when the external world is tugging and pulling on you.
So, I ask again.
What does being a warrior mean to you?
Had so much fun celebrating @carolinefallonn at her engagement party this past weekend! It’s been so fun to talk weddings and be engaged together. Looking forward to many more wedding chats (and rants) in the future! 💍👰🏼👰🏻💘
Love how you close your eyes when I pull you in closer
Tonight's moving fast but we ain't taking it slower
You hit me harder than a drink does
You're gonna take me all the way up
Something about you baby, got me going crazy
I don't know what to do
I've never met a girl like you
That's ever done it quite like you do
Your kiss is double-barrel bourbon on rocks
Your lips are just the cherry on top
I've never been high like this
Turn out the lights and let me breathe you in
Your eyes are so diamond, body so gold
And I don't want to let you go
I've never met a girl like you
"I adopted Prim from @nationalmilldogrescue in January of 2017; one year after I lost my first Yorkie, my heart dog, Zazoo. I had been fostering for @big_dogs_huge_paws_inc out of #Colorado in that time and had no intentions of adding another permanent member to my pack, let alone another Yorkie; how could one ever compare to my Zazoo? Then, I stumbled upon @nationalmilldogrescue, and started stalking their website.
One day I saw a post for 'Cinnamon' and just knew I had to have her. I can’t tell you why, other than it was love at first site and something about her cloudy little eyes pulled at my heart. So I ‘traded’ two English Mastiffs (to their foster homes) after a 7 hour drive for a little 6.5 pound, 11 year old, 'washed up' #puppymill momma. Cinnamon soon became Prim and, after two surgeries to remove all of her teeth and several mammary tumors, she came home with me.
Prim has come with lots of challenges, most of which are housebreaking, not uncommon for a dog forced to live in her own filth, but we just fix that with a diaper inside and watching her like a puppy. She’s still fearful of strangers, but absolutely adores me, and I adore her. She’s seen me through the loss of my last foster dog and a divorce and literally was the only thing to put a smile on my face every day for that first year. To see her run around and jump on me with her smiling face, tongue hanging out, after seeing where she came from...I just can’t describe the joy this little toothless, cloudy eyed old lady has brought me.
We’re going on year 2 and she seems to only get younger and more spry with every passing day. And while I’ll be devastated when her time with me is up, I will forever cherish the time she gave me to be her forever mom and the countless smiles she put on my face. All I ever want is for one person to hear Prim’s story and think twice about ever entering another pet store to buy a dog, and to adopt an adorable senior of course. — @randi_lea and Prim" ❤️ #seniordog#adopted#ADOPTDONTSHOP#ADOPTDONTBREED#comeonfolks#noexcuses

🍹 Best rooftop patios 🍹 blog post is now up! We have had quite a few people ask for recommendations, so we made a list of our top 5. Get out there and enjoy this beautiful day!☀️ Link in bio.
In December the Universe whispered to me and said “It is time.” And with a sudden shove I was flung it into the whirlwind that lead to today. Today 5 acres of Colorado’s beautiful wilderness became ours. Though for now it will serve as Basecamp, in the near future it will become a sanctuary; a place for wildlife to come to recover from injury and illness. A place for wolf dogs whose families have given up on them to call home until a forever home can be found. Today we started our biggest adventure. #dreams#dreamscometrue#colorado#wolfdog#wildlives#wildlife#rescue#rehab#findinghome#foundhome
I’m trying really hard to keep my cool about this photo. But I really can’t. This is probably my favorite photo I’ve taken! (Definitely over exaggerating cuz I’ve yet to take my favorite image) I freaking love @qwynneremeny and her just being down to do the wildest things. What a babe
