About Me

Welcome to my little page in the world. A place where I try to reflect on the shit storm that was my life the past three years. That makes it sound pretty bad and at some points it was pretty bad but now it's not so bad. I am the Widowed Yogi and 2 years ago, I lost my husband to brain cancer at the age of 33 when I was only 29. After that I left the life I knew and headed across the world to become yoga certified and then headed out West to San Diego to find life, love, and happiness.

You know what they say... a picture is worth a thousand words... so here is the slideshow of my life for about the past seven years...
