    Musings: Nourish

    A full day of wellness you say… Sure, sign me up. Thanks to Erica, of Fit Crawl, I was gifted a ticket for myself and Ambriss to attend the inaugural Nourish wellness event in Sacramento, CA. Two women, Amber Rosen & Sarah Stebbins, created Nourish to ‘…empower you with the knowledge and tools to support your wellbeing on a consistent, daily basis.’ From what I remember from the event, they met less than a year ago, where the idea for Nourish was started. Since then, they’ve developed a wellness brand that is based on the elements of her: body soul wealth community You already know I’m a little snarky, even…

    Musings: My Confidence Gap

    Confidence or lack thereof? I had every intention of doing a Five Things Friday post, but after a conversation with J yesterday (one of a few) I couldn’t shake my thoughts on this subject.  What is confidence? I’m not sure I even have this answered in my own head or thoughts. Sorry if this post seems slightly incoherent, my thoughts are all over the place, and I’m trying to figure out my feelings as I write this post.  If you watched the Mindy Project this week, then you’ll understand why our original conversation started. After the episode ended, I made the statement “I am not that confident.” J seemed to…
