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!

An utterly enjoyable day …

Today I made it to my last yoga class of 2015 and it left me feeling amazing. Then we headed to the beach for a little California winter fun in the sand, HA!

Well, I hope you all had an utterly enjoyable day!!!
