Mother’s Day is approaching. This year will be my first year to experience it on the other side.

Where to stay? Always a good question. This time, I used the well-edited list at Tablet Hotels to book a hotel and discovered the aptly named Good Hotel in San Fran’s SOMA district. Why so apt? As Tablet points out, “That’s “good” as a noun, not an adjective. San Francisco’s Good Hotel is less about being a good hotel—it certainly is that, in its unassuming way—and more about doing good.”
I know we’ve chatted a little bit about goals and goal setting this year already at Yogue, but the newness of this year is still with us and I’m happy to share some insights and experience from a fantastic writer, yogi, activist, enlightened dynamo and friend of Yogue, Kimberly Wilson, a.k.a.
