Happy Thursday, friends! Wherever you are, I hope your week has been a good one. Aside from an hour of wondering if Mercury was in retrograde, mine has been top-notch. This year, I made only one New Year's goal: more love. So far, it's been satisfying and transformative. Household chores look very different through the … Continue reading Work it Out.
Happy New Year, Friends! This January 1, I sat down with my journal to write my 2019 goals. I had been dreading it most of the morning - it had been far too long since I'd written in those pages. I had fallen off my self-care wagon, and perfection-fueled judgment started to tug at my … Continue reading More.
Last month, I had a special experience. I haven’t shared it here yet because it feels both precious and fragile. I feel a bit like how I imagine a new mother would feel. I want to tell everyone about this amazing thing that happened, and I also want to keep it nestled safely close to … Continue reading Trust the Process.
Happy New Year, friends! During this first week of this new year, I'm adjusting my typical New Year routine. Most years, I sit down with a pad of paper and a fresh pen to write my New Year goals. (In our family, we like to have goals to which we aspire as opposed to resolutions … Continue reading New Year/New Tune.
Hello, howdy, hola, friends! (It's been so long, I felt like you all deserved a selection of hellos.) At the risk of starting on a note of negativity, the weather in Denver has been ROUGH lately. I shouldn't complain, since we get pretty spoiled out here, but dear lord. I think we're getting all our … Continue reading Work it Out.
Well, friends, after months of planning and training (and a few anxiety attacks), it finally happened: we ran the Ragnar Relay! Last weekend, 152 teams headed to Copper Mountain to begin our 194-mile journey through the Rockies, bound for Aspen. Our 12-person team, which we named "Real World: Ragnar," was divided into two vans - … Continue reading Real World: Ragnar
Hi friends! I had a birthday this weekend, and it was spectacular (my dear friend gave a delightful account here). A bunch of people flew in from across this great nation, and we decamped to the mountains to celebrate in true Colorado fashion: we hiked, we canoed, and we hot tubbed. Several people asked how … Continue reading Dirty 30.
Happy Sunday, friends! How was everyone's weekend? Mine was perfect. Saturday, I went for a run with darling Felicia (and saw an outdoor showing of Finding Nemo with her and her fiance's families, who agreed to adopt me for the weekend) and helped another good friend prime a wall in her apartment (followed by celebratory … Continue reading Sunset/Sunrise.
Happy no-longer-Monday, friends! I went to another sculpt class at CorePower Yoga tonight, and it was amazing. I powered through class, inspired by the kicky music and energetic teacher, motivated by thoughts of running the Ragnar. I stopped to catch my breath when I needed, challenging myself to join in for each exercise and feeling … Continue reading Super Yogi.
Hi friends! My brother and sister-in-law visited this weekend (more on that later), and after saying a reluctant farewell, I thought I'd cheer myself up by sharing some exciting news: I'm running the Ragnar Relay this August (uh, pending getting the day off work...)! What's the Ragnar, you ask? The Colorado iteration is a 12-person, … Continue reading Kool-Aid.
