I love doing what I’m currently doing: I love blogging! Years ago when I was teaching yoga, if someone had told me I would one day become a blogger, I would never have believed it. Before that, of course, blogging didn’t even exist—but still, I wish I would have discovered it sooner! At the time, I loved teaching yoga. Then we moved (regret).

I recently contacted Boom! asking if they sold sample sizes of their “Boomsticks”. I was curious and thought I might be able to write a blog post about their products. They wrote right back, telling me they were going to send me the Boomsticks and that they would be happy for me to write a review for my blog. They wound up sending me five different products…
