Were So Gallantly Singing

I seem to be on some kind of video binge lately, but this is pretty spectacular. The two girls on the right are 6 years old, the two in the center are 7, and the one on the left is 8. Amazing!

Because It's Fun

Turns out, I just need more fun in my life!

Something I need to remember. I'm nearly always motivated by fun.

Laughter is the Best Downward Dog

Knock knock
Who's there?
Yoga who?
Yoga to try this, it feels amazing.

I pulled together a little make-shift yoga studio in my unfinished basement with a big bolt of cool fabric for the walls and some smelly candles for lights. On most days that space is used by my friends and I for a nice, relaxing, and rejuvenating yoga class taught by our favorite yogini. Tonight, however, the class was taught by a hokey DVD instructor and was made up of me, my sister-in-law, and my 9-year-old nephew who couldn't stop laughing about us sticking our bums in the air for downward facing dog. Now I have the giggles about it. I'm not sure I will be able to keep a straight face the next time I try that yoga pose. It might be kind of like trying not to laugh during church.

Turns out there really is a form of yoga called laughter yoga. And here I thought Jeremy and I made it up.

Winter Already?

It snowed today. It's definitely October and not May. Where did summer go?
