Happy New Year

I love new beginnings …

I am steeped in 30 days of yoga, Stretching Within, designing a yummy new website and practicing amazing self-care.

What are you beginning?

Xmas Xtravaganza

Shep and I were treated to a concert in Red Bank, NJ, on Saturday by our friends, Rose & Joe. We were all set to go last year, but got snowed out.

We started at Dish, an amazing little restaurant. The sauteed spinach was a revelation (I wanted to snap a photo … really I did … but I was too busy eating).

Then it was a short walk in the beautiful clear night to the Count Basie Theater for Glen Burtnik’s Xmas Xtravaganza.

We found out that Glen’s been doing this for 20 years as a benefit area food banks. Gotta love that. There was an ever changing array of musicians playing all the alternative holiday music that an alternative music girl like me could stand.

Thanks, Rose & Joe!

Quickest Visit Home Ever

was 2 weeks ago. Arrived for a scrumptious dinner with Mom and Dad. Left after breakfast. I did, however, manage to pop into my favorite store: White Flower Farmhouse.

At the helm of the farmhouse is Lori Guyer, who my aunts know from the yard sale circuit. When my parents had their own yard sale a few years ago, Lori came by the day before and snatched up some cool pieces for the store. I love Lori’s eye and how she puts things together.

Here are a few snapshots of what she put together for the holidays.

Oh and I’d love you to come find me in my new blog home when I move a few weeks from now. Sign up here.

30 Days of Yoga

I signed up for Marianne Elliott’s 30 Days of Yoga and I’m pretty darn excited.

It’s been about 7 years since I’ve had a daily home practice. When I did, however, I felt amazingly grounded and clear. I felt at home in my body, and I felt as if I could do anything.

Want to do it with me? It starts January 4th.

By then, I’ll be in my yummy new blog home. Yippeee!! I’d love to invite you there! Sign up here.
