A nice day …

Holy moly, I am wiped out. I am still feeling the fallout from my awful long run on Friday and it’s been a hectic performance weekend for Libs. We were also out late last night after her final show for a little celebratory dinner and for some crazy reason I work up EARLY this Sunday morning. But it’s all good. I am so thankful for the a blessed and busy life we have! And despite being a little beat up, I plan on enjoying this day to the fullest! Later we are headed to the beach to attend a luncheon with some people I just adore. I can’t think of a better place or way to spend an afternoon recouping!

Well, I hope you all have a nice day!!!

Too excited to sleep …

Let it be known that a 7 year old who is on vacation, and spends all day riding rides and playing games at a beach amusement park, will have a restless night. Yup.

Well, I hope you all have a day where you are too excited to sleep!!!

Finding joy … 

Late last night I had the opportunity to be down in Newport Beach. I was at a place high enough in the city where I could see the marina all lit up. It was lovely. The way the lights twinkled on the water had me in awe. As “present” as I try to remain in my daily life and as thankful as I am for having any moments at all, I am often STRUCK by experiences like this. I am so captivated by the gift that I see in them, that I can’t help but stop and take them all in. I want to feel and appreciate the unexpected beauty that life so generously hands me. It’s times like these that truly feed my soul.

Well, I hope you all have a day where you find your joy!!!

Running with a very special person…

I’ve had two back to back days at the beach. AND today at the beach I got to run with one of my dearest friends who also happens to be my running mentor. She is my very first SOLE sister and she is on a short trip to California. Without her and her husband I would have never had the courage to run my first marathon. They got me racing and they have supported and encouraged me so much throughout the years. Their friendship is truly priceless.

Well, I hope you all have a day where you get to share what you love with a very special person!!!

Wanderlust … 

Today I went to my first Wanderlust with some friends. Wanderlust is called a MINDFUL TRIATHLON. Honestly there is no better way to describe it. It’s an event filled with running, yoga and meditation. And I LOVED IT! This particular Wanderlust was in Santa Monica and held on the pier and beach.

So let’s get this straight.

This was a day that I got to spend in my happy place, enjoying all the things I love to do, with people who make me laugh. Yep. That is my kinda day!

Well, I hope you all had a day where you got to wander with some very special people!
  

Relaxed and renewed …

I went to a beautiful wedding shower at the beach today for one of my best friend’s daughter. And ya wanna know what’s crazy?

First, that my friends have children who are old enough to actually get married. And second, that I can go to the beach, without even laying on the sand, and feel like I went on a mini-vacation.

Well, I hope you all have a day where you feel relaxed and renewed!
