A Trip To Indy

A Trip To Indy

Whenever I travel to different places, I tend to fall in love with the cities. There’s something about the public transportation, hustle and bustle, and local businesses that make me excited to explore. I recently visited Indianapolis and wanted to share my experience. This is the perfect road trip destination because it’s not too far from Chicago and still has a lot to offer. It’s also a great place to stop along the way if you’re headed to Nashville!

What to See:
Soldiers and Sailors Monument/Monument Circle is located in the center of downtown, which is a great place to start your visit and walk around. 
Where to Eat:
Garden Table is a farm to table restaurant and juice bar. They have two locations in Indy (Mass Ave. and Broad Ripple). This is a great spot for brunch, dinner or to grab some appetizers. 
Top: Blooming Jelly on Amazon can be found here.
Ring: Icing- similar style can be found here.

Where to Drink:
Easley Winery offers wine tastings and tours. Wine tastings are available daily and cost $5.00. Tours are available Saturday and Sundays at 12:00pm and 1:00pm. 
Where to Stay:
There are a lot of hotel options in downtown Indy. Another great option is Airbnb. They have some cute “retreat” spots available. Some popular ones: 
Photo Opportunities:
Mural outside The Alexander hotel. Bonus if you are driving because it’s in a parking lot (except it is a private area so grab your photo quickly). 
Now it’s time to book your visit to Indianapolis!

Finding Home Away From Home

Finding Home Away From Home

Sometimes traveling or being away from our homes can make us feel a little uneasy. My yoga class intention for last week was about finding home in your mind and body. There are some places we visit that remind us how much we miss home and there’s some yoga postures that make us feel uneasy (camel & wheel for me). 
During these times, it’s important to focus on the things that ground us. Our breath, intention, a person, place, etc. If you feel like you’re searching for grounding while being away either mentally or physically, I have a few tips to share! 
1. Get into a routine
I’ve noticed that a routine helps my mind and body stay on track. Maybe that’s finding a gym, yoga studio, or reading a few chapters from your book each night. 

2. Journal & Meditate 
Take some time to slow down and journal. Journaling helps me process my feelings, emotions, but also write down a gratitude list. If you need a little inspiration on what to write about, you can find the meditation journal I use here.
3. #Treatyoself 
Sometimes you need to feed your soul. Find a coffee shop or bakery and treat yourself to a coffee, tea, or in my case, a cookie dough cupcake! Maybe read a magazine, listen to your favorite playlist or a podcast while your enjoying your treat. 
XOXO,
