I finally got to meet this amazing woman in the flesh yesterday! We’ve been online friends for years and she is in Sactown this week and popped into my class yesterday.

She is the sweetest. She is an amazing yoga teacher and beer genius! Follow her adventures of bringing good beer to you.

I have a slight obsession with artists. I just finished watching @jordanache’s live. She is a gift. Go watch the recording. I took love notes because she moved my soul.

A life without regulations and checklists; young parents living in the moment rafting and beer drinking down the Truckee River with their two nuggets.

Pictured here is my brother, mom, and myself in 1987. My brother age 3, and I am 4 on this summer day.

Not pictured: life vests and safety gear - because we didn't have any, nor was it required - maybe it was but not for us. It's funny to look back at my parents and their ways of parenting, when they were the most carefree.

I asked them, "what did you guys do when we got knocked off the raft and into the river?” Their response, "hold onto the rope, keep your head above water until we dive in after you." Simple as that. I wish I could say I am as carefree as they once were, but I’m not.

I often feel too structured and tied to stupid warning labels, caution signs, and bullshit helicopter parent-shaming. Perhaps my parents were so carefree because living life didn’t have a warning label or a rule attached, if it did, they probably ignored it, anyway.


Recruit your flutes (thanks, autocorrect).
