I feel like I’m grasping tight to the things around me these days. I’m probably the first to shrug off the change of season, the change of moving cities, and the change of traveling a ton as no big deal…. but it all adds up to matter and I have to admit I feel a little crazy in the brain. This season I’ve started a new workout routine. Since I’ve moved away from my beloved SoulCycle in California, I’ve started practicing Bikram Yoga in New Orleans. I’m terrible. Who knew bending could be so dang challenging?

We’ve taken to buying it whole once a month whenever we come across really fresh salmon at the supermarket. It makes for nutritious and healthy meals without really breaking the bank.
