This weekend, I experienced a series of unfortunate events.
Friday night, my honey woke me up from a bad dream because I was whimpering so loudly in my sleep. Saturday we drove across the bridge to Tampa for a concert but couldn't get in because it was sold out. We also passed a downed motorcyclist on our search for something else to do (he ended up being OK). Sunday, I got my first ever traffic ticket- $166 for not fully stopping at a stop sign. And Sunday afternoon we attended the funeral for Jim's old karate instructor.
But this weekend was also filled with so much good. I taught yoga at my favorite studio and met a new student on a beautiful spiritual path. I took a dance class with an incredible teacher. I walked on the sand and visited my friend, Ocean. I held hands with my man and felt supported and loved. I got to see him and his mother deliver the most moving speech together in celebration of their former instructor and friend. I had to time to enjoy a new book. I ate delicious Chipotle. I got soooo many kisses and snuggles from my doggie.
So, despite all the crap... There is so much more good. I am grateful for this human experience. I am happy.
I hope you have a fabulous week,

This morning, I woke up with my legs swung over the arm of the couch, head on my love's lap, as he dozed nestled into the cushions.
Here's what I made for lunch.

1 frozen banana
1 regular banana
frozen green grapes
small handful frozen chopped dino kale
drizzle MCT oil (optional, can swap coconut oil or avocado or a little nut/seed butter. basically, eat your fat!)
organic apple juice to blend (could also use water or soy/coconut/almond/rice milk)
