Girlfriends

http://www.graphicsfairy.com/  I’m very blessed to have active friends from pretty much all stages of my life.  The other day I was so completely down about pretty much everything that I had to force myself to think about what is right in my world.  Girlfriends popped into my head.  I have girlfriends who go waaaaay…

Dessert Stomach

I have this theory, which is completely, anatomically incorrect: we have a “food” stomach and a “dessert” stomach.  I used to say that a lot, before kids.  I’m full up with food, but there’s a little room “up top” for dessert and a decaf.  We’ve been on Little Man lately, because he says he is…

Yoga Games

I’ve been simultaneously entertaining and making myself crazy with yoga class card “games.”  I have a couple of cards from different studios that are expiring around the same time and I am running out of time to use them.  I was a yoga class slacker this summer and went sporadically because of summer camp schedules…
