do you keep in close touch with your family (not your parents)? by the way, LOVE the blog :D

I try to, but it’s kind of tough! My grandparents still live in Romania, so while my parents call them every week, I usually only get the chance to talk to them about once a month. As for my cousins from Michigan (who I went to Florida with), we have random moments of lots of contact, and then basically nothing for months at a time. Keeping in touch is not the easiest task in the world when your family lives all over the place :/ But I try my best and still love them all the same!

(As for my Shad family, I keep in touch with them as often as possible.. <3 )

And thank you! I’m glad you enjoy my posts :)

FOR THE LOVE OF yoga, pt. 1: any time, any place

Many of you probably know by now that I am a big fitness lover. Like, really big.

However, not many of you may know that I do a lot of yoga, and actually love it. A lot. So I thought I’d share with you some photos of yoga progress, etc. and give you a list of reasons why I love yoga!

  1. You can do it anywhere. Literally. Cocoa Beach, Florida? Sure!
  2. You can do it any time. Morning, night, it’s always fun and constructive to your physical and mental well-being.
  3. There are so many types! My favourite is Bikram hot yoga.
  4. It’s super relaxing.

Photos (location: cocoa beach, florida):

  • Bottom 2: stretching out and realigning my spine with camel pose
