Today I took a yoga class at Heavenly overlooking Lake Tahoe at an elevation of 9,123 ft.
I decided to take this class because it sounded like an incredible experience but also a something that would really challenge me. I recently have committed to practicing yoga regularly. I’ve decided to to do this because not only is yoga something that conditions the mind and body, but it is also something that I’m not great at. I’m committed to being decent at yoga. I probably will never be the person who can do a handstand or some of the challenging poses, but I want to take it seriously because its one of the only sports that helps me focus on being in the moment. Being completely in the moment is something I have only felt myself doing when I’m doing something challenging and that takes focus. Yoga pushes me to my physical limits and in doing so causes me to focus on nothing else but the class I am in. In class I don’t feel anxious. I don’t think about my to-do list. I just think about how much longer I can hold in downward dog. Yoga is helping me build a strong foundation.

Started the morning off by hiking the Lake Clementine Trail in Auburn, CA. The trail is about 4.5 miles round trip along the American River and leads up to Lake Clementine where the water falls from the dam into the canyon. It’s a pretty easy hike although about half of it is uphill. Just make sure you get there early as parking is limited! Parking is also $10 as it is a state park. Check out photos from the hike below!
Just bought the cutest patio set today! Excited to be able to finally eat outside!
Links to all items are below. Plus they are all on major sale right now!
Last weekend Eddie and I got our engagement photos taken at North Table Mountain Ecological Reserve. The ecological reserve had beautiful grasslands sprinkled with wildflowers and oak trees, making it the perfect backdrop for our photos. Our photographer was Lexi Nicole, who took some amazing photos and did a great job making the shoot a fun experience.
I’m staring up a new series: Monthly Must-Haves. Every month I’ll share ten fashion and home items that I love. All the items are shoppable so you can add some new things to your wardrobe or home.
Visited Calistoga for the second time this weekend. Not only does Calistoga have beautiful scenery and a charming downtown, it’s less than a two hour drive from both San Francisco and Sacramento, which makes it perfect for a day trip or weekend getaway.
