We Love Rachel Schromen!

This is the 17th in our ongoing series highlighting our happy yogis. This week we’re profiling the incredible Rachel Schromen. Rachel is an impressive individual. She is remarkable at helping people make connections and discover opportunities. She is SO good at connecting people whose lives will be better for having been introduced to one another. She is an incredible listener and generous friend. Every time I talk with Rachel I leave the conversation with a little nugget — some food for thought — that I’m always grateful to have in my pocket.

The Best Bridesmaid’s Gift!

I was cruising Pinterest recently and happened to notice there is not a lot of variety in what bridal couples can choose from when selecting gifts for their wedding party. Monogrammed robe? Um… that one has been done time and time and time again. While sweet, it’s probably safe to say it’s run its course. Matching necklace and earrings?

That solution screams, “I forgot and time...
