    Backcountry Yoga Review

    A few years ago when I was living in SF, I came across a blog post from a Boston blogger I follow, dear anna, who wrote about her family’s recent hike – affectionately called a hut to hut.

    Behind Her Pursuit of Sunshine

    One of the blog’s biggest fans – my sister – recently asked me to write a post about how my blog got it’s name – and I’m not one to disappoint one the blog’s most long-standing readers. If you remember back to the beginning, it was 2010 and my blog was hosted on sarahmitus.com. I […]
