favorite pinterest accounts

November 21, 2014 § Leave a comment



Oh Pinterest…I kind of have a love/hate relationship with you. Do I think you’re a wonderful source of inspiration and an easy way to share content?


Do I think you’ve replaced magazines so that women (mostly) now have an instant, free way to feel incredibly inadequate on a daily basis?


Yep, Pinterest must be approached with a healthy dose of “I’m fine!” Here are my favorite accounts, mostly because they just post such beautiful photos of all kinds.






There are many more, but like many other posts this month, this is a day late! I need to get it together on my own challenge!

Synchronicity in my daily life? There’s a lot and I love it. Not a lot more I have to say about that at the moment…

It seemed like a good post idea at the time…

More later…

Just being honest…

Have a good weekend!

Have I ever mentioned that Andrew gives the best gifts ever? Oh, dang, I have…oh well, it’s totally true!

I convinced him to let me open my present early the other night and this was it! YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

I started off simple and made roasted red pepper and tomato soup last night. Insanely good and easy. If you have a Vitamix out there, how do you like to use it? I need ideas asap! Homemade nut butter here I come!

3 dinner guests

Bill Murray, Nora Ephron, and Walt Whitman. Not only do I love love love love them, but I also think they’d make the best dinner party guests ever.

What three famous people (dead or alive) would you invite to dinner?


winter essentials

Winter. Apparently this one is going to be a doozy. I think “they” might be right…I’m on my first snow day today! We got a few inches last night and I’ll be honest, I’m loving it.

I definitely have a list of things for every season. These are things that are just mandatory for winter.

red wine


I’ve been addicted to Apothic Red lately. My parents got me started on it. Hey, available at the Jay C in Corydon and is decent?! That’s a yes. I am definitely more of a white wine person, but in the winter, even I’m drawn towards the reds.

a super long coat

The longer, the better. A few years ago I got one similar to this one which¬†got snagged and feathers started leaking out….not a good look. I also was a little cold. So this year I upgraded to this one, which is CRAZY warm and durable and cute! However, it is LONG. I don’t know if it’s because I’m shorter than their ideal shopper or what, but this is thing is long, long, long.

yoga…it’s pretty much an essential for every season….but if you need to get warm, just do some ashtanga….you’ll heat up quick

Since today’s my first snow day off of work, I thought I would just give you everything I’ve done today. Full on winter mode over here on November 17th! Crazy!





Poses: 45/52: Inverted Compass or “Super Soldier”

This pose is CRAZY! Actually, it just looks kind of crazy. A new pose invented by breakdancer-yogi Lamonte Goode or better known on Instagram as @NightmareTales.

This guy is wild. I recommend following him just to let your jaw drop on a daily basis:



It’s about 50x easier than it looks. Here’s how to get in:

If you need a more in depth tutorial, Kathryn Budig has a great 90 min class towards it on Yogaglo. As she says, “it looks contorted.” Which it does, but it’s not really at all and is super fun!

how I brighten my days and if I could have any other job

November 13, 2014 § Leave a comment

I’m not going to sugar coat anything. I’ve fallen behind on blogging.

There is more dog hair on my floors right now than I thought possible. I just threw a pile of groceries on the counter and they need to go in the fridge. The sink and counter is full of dirty dishes. The dishwasher is empty thank god. I have to be at the studio in less than an hour. And I still have to write yesterday’s and today’s post.

Like I said at the beginning of this challenge. Participation in any form is fine. So I’m going to keep it super simple.This week I’ve had to rely on yoga, gummy bears, red wine, and my fleece onesie to brighten my days.

As far as if I could have any other job? That’s a tough one because I’m absurdly satisfied with the two I have. However, I’d have to agree with Laura and go travel writer...particularly for some fancy blog, website, or magazine that specializes in renting yurts like these in Big Sur.
