Hello there. I’m back to the blog and wow! Everything has changed on WordPress! I can’t believe I’ve been away so long that I don’t recognize the format at all. Eek. It’s just like riding a bike… right?

Well anyway, how has everyone been?? Thanks so much for all the kind words and sweet messages of encouragement to start writing again. I think about writing all the time, I’ve just been really busy with life, love, school, my studio, travel, and yes, some much needed quiet time. Life has been absolutely wonderful, and I have SO much to write about. I feel like I have been running around like Honey Boo Boo on go go juice. Maybe I should just summarize and then future posts can get detailed.

I had a birthday, which was filled with my amazingly sweet, gorgeous, huge-hearted friends, champagne, yummy food, butterflies, great music, engaging conversation, slumber/dance party, and vegan, gluten-free cupcakes. I mean… !!! It was so much fun. I’m so grateful to all my dear loves that made it happen. Kaleo was on tour, and I wasn’t going to do anything and then these ladies outdid themselves big time. I’m so in love with them all.

Speaking of the man, his album is finished and It. Is. Amaze. I can’t WAIT until everyone can hear it!! They also just wrapped up the video for the new single, which is super hot and NSFW. 😉 It was a really fun day of shooting and everyone was so great, even though they were on set for about 14 hours. Big props to cast AND crew.

I’m moving right along in school! I’m studying Naturopathy, for those of you who asked. Sorry it took me so long to respond. I’m officially about 6 months in. A drop in the bucket of time, but every class is so exciting to me. I seriously have to schedule my study time and limit myself, other wise I will study for hours on end and never get anything else done. That’s how I know I’m on the right path. I have to STOP myself from studying too much. Who would have thought? I’m probably about a year or more out from my HHP, and maybe another 3-4 years for my NP. But prior to that I will be certified in Holistic Nutrition as well as Medicinal Herbology. With that being said, I will definitely be writing about some of my favorite healthy recipes and tips here on ze’ blog.

K and I celebrated our 11th wedding anniversary! And I can still say that we feel like newlyweds. It’s been such a beautiful journey, and I am so excited about the rest of our lives.  I fall in love with him again everyday… Oh and did I mention that he is home for most of the summer?? First time in like 12 years. I am so happy with this monkey…

Bikes! The awesome peeps at Electra hooked the boys up with the most amazing bikes ever.  SInce K is home for a while, he picked me up one too. I don’t think I have had my own bike since high school?? Mine is coming tomorrow and I’m uber excited. It’s the Amsterdam Original in cream with a brown seat. And I am totally getting  a basket and a bell. Of course, he wants me to wear a helmet and I said hel-no. I think he wants me to think that he’s worried about me, but I really think that he secretly wants to see me in it so he can snap a photo and send it to all my friends. And my mom. On second thought, they are all probably encouraging him to make me wear one. Hmm.

My yoga studio is still such a delight! I am grateful every time I walk through the doors. We are well into our 4th year of business already! I’m telling you, time is flying by like crazy, and I’m loving every minute of it. Here’s to a long, hot summer filled with love, sun, learning, laughter, health, and adventure! I’ve missed this. Hope to see you soon.
