Let's be thankful, shall we?

It's been a great few months. Things seem to be looking up. Things are going well. I'm feeling great. I don't know how often I'm able to actually say that. I took a yoga class this morning. There was the option of writing on a slip of paper what you're grateful for so that the teacher could read it in front of everyone. There were roughly 25 people in class and only 5 of us or so were willing to share. Most people are thankful for family, friends and yoga.

Mine was bigger.

"I am thankful that I am finally in a place in my life where I am learning to know and love myself."

I'd say that calls for celebration. There's a bottle of champagne with name on it and Chinese takeout on the way.

Where have I been all my life?

It's been a busy summer. Full of what? I don't know exactly. Yoga has become a regular part of my week, which I'm loving. There was a time when my jaded self disliked the idea of "being a tree," but now, all I want to do is be a tree and find strength in my grounding and grow my branches as I damn well please.

And now for your amusement, a child climbing an ice cream cone.

A friend was married last weekend and after being involved in the bridal party, I feel as though I could sleep for many moons to come. It took place in a small, sleepy town in Michigan which I discovered does not serve food anywhere after 11:00pm. So if you plan to spend the day drinking flute of champagne after flute of champagne, bring snacks.

Next week we'll be flying to Denver to see The National perform at Red Rocks - could not be more excited if I tried. After which point we will disappear into the wilderness of the upper peninsula of Wisconsin on Rock Island for some camping. Neptune will join and boy, is he excited.

Oh! And terrariums. I'm really into my terrarium phase right now.
