Yoga and Wedding

We have been busy...Zach has been busy with school, work, and the gym. I've been busy with work and yoga. And we've both been busy with wedding planning {there's so much to plan and think about!}

I completed the first 2 (out of 5) modules in the yoga teacher training and I definitely learned a lot in a month's time. I felt like a sponge trying to absorb all that I could and I let myself be okay with not fully understanding everything, I know it will all come in time.  It wasn't just doing yoga poses 5 days a week for a month. It was learning the correct alignment of poses, along with observing our bodies in postures, and recognizing and feeling the ever slightest adjustments of our muscles, heads, joints, ribs, and breath. We started learning about the history and philosophy of yoga; which the philosophy of yoga is something all of its own and quite a deep topic. We also started learning about meditation and the language of Sanskrit. Meditation is hard. It's really difficult to sit still with your eyes closed and just let your thoughts pass. It is something I need to work on and make time for.

Girls at work have been asking me when I was going to start teaching them, so the other day after work 4 of us stayed and I taught my first ever yoga class. It was fun! And the girls seemed to really enjoy it. They want to make this a weekly occurrence, which I think would be a great help for me to become comfortable with teaching.

I start module 3 on Wednesday and I'm super excited for it. The next 3 modules (February, March, and April)  include training for 5 days straight for 7 hours each day and we will be focusing more on sequencing a class. I'm hoping more things will start to click and I'll understand how to better prepare and design a class.

In wedding planning news...
I bought my dress!  A few of my co-workers went with me 3 separate times to try on dresses (they are the best) and I'm so grateful I had them there to help me out.

These ladies are the best! 

If you don't know yet, I am the most indecisive person. It is difficult for me to make decisions.  And I am not one of those girls who has pictured my wedding dress since I was 10 years old. I just wanted something flattering and not too expensive and that's what I got. When I was wearing the dress the other night in he bridal shop all I kept thinking was, "I can't wait to marry Zach". I had that moment where nothing else matters except I am marrying the love of my life!

We have the food caterer booked. We are both really excited for the food option we have chosen.

We went the other day to look at wedding rings and I have picked mine out. Now Zach just has to choose one.

On Monday we are going to take our engagement photos so hopefully we'll have invitations sent out soon.

Things are falling into place!


  1. Yay! Love this post! I am SO happy for you and your dress is AMAZING!
