Dry Rosé Sangria

I love finding good sangria, because I believe it to be rare. (Unless you're in Spain— then it's all good!) I've been disappointed more times than not when ordering Sangria here in the States. Why?

Confessions Of A Self Care Hypocrite

One of the themes I use regularly in the yoga classes I teach is: Self Care is a divine responsibility. It's a quote by Danielle Laporte, and I love that she uses both of the words "divine" and "responsibility."
