welcome home

...and I'm officially back! Check out the video below for some homey updates:
I obviously need a lot more practice with the One-Legged King Pigeon Pose but I don't mind sticking with it at all :). In addition to being a great stretch for thighs, groins, psoas, abdomen, chest, shoulders, and neck, it also stimulates the abdominal organs and opens the shoulders and chest. Yoga Journal is such an amazing resource for yogis of all levels. Thank you to Kate and Tina for hosting such a fun personal challenge for Yoga Pose May!
Rewinding a bit, I thought we'd take a glance back at past afternoons with Currency, the book I will soon review, and my last few samples of Amazing Grass. Although the green powders have their fair share of fans, I often find them too chalky for my tastes. Nevertheless, I found this particular glass to be both satisfying and refreshing. Have you ever tried these products or similar ones? Opinions? I'd prefer to stick with fresh greens from now on.
Lastly, here's that tour de chambre I promised, complete with a peek at my desk,
inside my open closet, 
and across the right-top of my dresser. Small yet quaint, wouldn't you agree?
Anyway, sorry for the random tidbits today! You can surely look forward to quite a few real food pictures for tomorrow :) and I'm going to take a quick nap before heading out for drinks with a couple of old friends until then. Have a great night! 


  1. I love pigeon pose. It's the only thing that really stretches my hips out, although when I was going to yoga once a week I could def sink further down into it. I don't belong to the gym anymore, I think I need to try a DVD.

  2. Welcome back!!! Love your room.

    Oh you are so cute! I love your vlogs.

    Half-pigeon is my FAVORITE! It feels so good on my hips.

  3. Your room is so well organized and cute...I love when people have lots of small personal touches! As for the Amazing Grass, I never really liked it alone until I started adding a little cocoa powder. It really makes it richer and delicious!!

  4. Rachel: I definitely agree. I have quite a few DVDs because studios can get so expensive, and now that I'm feeling better, I need to get back into the habit of making use of them :).

    Little Bookworm: Thank you!

    Katie: Thanks, dear! And I can totally attest to that. It's good for runners.

    Gabriela: Aw, thank you! Hm, cocoa powder does sound intriguing. I don't like their chocolate-flavored mix though so I don't know. I'm so difficult ;).

  5. you have the most comforting voice in the world. i wish you could be on my shoulder when im having a stressful and anxious day!!

  6. glidingcalm: Let's make that happen :)
