Hi, I’m Leslie.

I’m a midwestern woman who is a lover of life, learning, yoga, food, books, coffee shops, deep conversations, and all things beauty. I live with my husband, J and two pups, Briar Bear and Olivia Sue. I’m a former High School English teacher and a current High School Counselor. I have also been teaching Yoga now for over 20 years.
