Today's Letter (inspired by...)

Every day, I send Dave a little love via email in the form of a photo or quote or story.  It's my way of letting him know that I am thinking about him as he starts his day.

While that is OUR thing, I'm pretty excited about the inspiration I find over at Today's Letters.  

I mean...seriously.  Have you ever seen anything so awesome?!?!  
And all because it's true.  
A few words can change a person's day.   
I know a few words have changed mine.

So, here is my go at a letter...

Dear Dave...thanks for thinking so much about our future together.  It means everything to me that you think through each step thoroughly and strive for success with every thought, word and deed.  

Dear Mother Nature...thanks for bringing out the heat and sun yesterday afternoon to provide sunshine for a little impromptu barbecue.  Your rays are the best.  

Dear Port-o-John...thanks for being by the baseball diamond at just the right time on my run yesterday.  Home run.  

Dear patience...thanks for all the lessons you are teaching me these days.  I know we aren't always the best of friends, but you are there when tough decisions are being made and for that, I am grateful.  

Dear Mr. S...we cleaned a lot yesterday and I know it isn't the most fun way to spend a Sunday afternoon, but look at all we got accomplished!  Clean house for the win!

How do send your love to those you love?

A Friday Virtual Vacation

Friends of mine are currently in Europe.

They enjoyed Paris and Normandy and now they are soaking in the lovely German atmosphere.

M+P...have a little brötchen for me!

In honour of their trip (and because I am always ready for a little travel myself),
I am sharing a little Friday Virtual Vacation.

For your viewing pleasure...a little Paris.

This weekend will be full of gardening, running, yoga, biking and dreaming of baguettes.

Happy Weekend!

Backtrack to Bali

I've been away from Bali for a little over a month now.

It has been hard for me to describe the experiences I had, the people I met, the emotions I worked through and all the lessons I learned while I was there.

Bali is beautiful, inspiring and overwhelming.  I'm so grateful I had the opportunity to be there!

I was blogging for my yoga studio back in Moose Jaw while I was there.  If you want to check those out...they are listed here:

Post Three:  Departure and Arrival

That being said...I feel very far away from Bali.  Far from the peace and stability I felt in the last week of my training.  Now, granted...when you are doing an immersive training and yoga is the only thing you are living, eating and breathing it is easy to focus on yourself and what your body, mind and soul need every minute.  In the "real world," that becomes a little more difficult.

So, I'm working through this right now as I continue my transition into this new life and new way of being.  I just think it's going to take a little time...

I'm a Teacher

Starting tomorrow, I'll be teaching yoga at our lovely yoga studio here in town.
I can't believe what a journey it's been.
I know I haven't been posting lately, but so much has happened.
I need to catch my breath, and then catch up here.

In the meantime, here are some photos my amazing friend M took of me when I was in Arizona a couple of weeks ago.  She has mad talent and I am so lucky I got to spend time with her and her beau.
