I’ve been taking a bit of an unplanned sabbatical.
I’m visiting family on the Jersey Shore and have been eating all the things, playing all the board games, and walking on the beach as much as possible.
I haven’t really felt compelled to share much of anything and I never want to clutter up your inbox with anything that I don’t feel will truly add value to your life.
I wanted to say, hi, though, and thought you might enjoy this list of 5 things I am loving right now:
Book: Conscious Loving by Gay and Kathlyn Hendricks – this book goes right up there with John Gottman’s 7 Principles for Making Marriage Work on my list of most valuable books for strengthening your marriage. I love that this one focuses on how you as an individual can grow in the process of creating a great partnership.
Shoes: Keen Rose Sandals – I have been living in these and have the weird tan lines to prove it.
Protein Powder: Amy Myers – While on vacation, I’ve been eating all the fun food favorites that I can’t get in Nevada. In order to balance out some of the dietary craziness, the boys and I have been starting a lot of our days with this protein powder recommended by our nutritionist. Both the Vanilla Bean and birthday cake flavors are excellent.
Experience: Yoga on the beach with Mary Manning of Bolt Yoga – If you’ve participated in Camp Happy Mama, (there’s still time to register for session 4, by the way) you know how fantastic it is to have yoga class with Mary. I was lucky enough to take class with her in person. On the beach. With dolphins. But you can work with her virtually by visiting bolt.yoga.
Viral video: If you haven’t yet seen this video of 78-year-old Joni Mitchell performing “Both Sides Now” at the Newport Folk Festival on Sunday (in her first concert since suffering a near-fatal brain aneurysm in 2015 which left her unable to speak) well, grab the tissues and press play.
Have a great week!
