Blog Love


I’ve spent this week counting down the number of sleeps until I leave for a week in Detroit (two left!!). I’m excited for real fall weather and having a reason to wear my leather jacket. Although I guarantee I’ll be complaining that I’m freeeeeezing after a couple days. I’ve got almost all my blog and Badass Babes content prepped & scheduled and I’m mentally packing my suitcase…where did I put all those sweaters I used to own??

Aside from pining for Michigan, I’ve been continuing the aerial teacher training and starting to assist classes, which I was really excited for when they mentioned it the first day. I had no idea how much I’d miss teaching…really, I had no idea how much I’d love teaching in the first place. But sometimes you unexpectedly get pushed in a direction that just happens to be the right one. And for that I’m very thankful :)
