Are you glad it’s the weekend?  I sure am!   I’ve been working a ton, being the breadwinner, being mommy, being pulled in so many different directions.

It’s time to stop.

And give gratitude and thanks. Because that is centering and calming and puts things in perspective.

1. Beautiful weather.  70s, sunny, not a cloud in the sky.  Blooming flowers, plants, and palm trees.  This is why I live in San Diego.  I made sacrifices and chose to live here and can’t imagine my life anywhere else.  Especially in the winter!

2. Skylar.  The joy, meaning, and purpose of my life.  Period.

4. The ability to do yoga and to have the gift of yoga in my life the past decade.

Tip: Free Valentine’s Day Recipes from Vega

I noticed that lots of them call for their Macasure bars, and I’ve posted about those and Maca uses and benefits in general.   I am sure you could simply use regular baker’s chocolate, or chocolate chips, in place of whatever their recipes call for.


From my last post on the Valentine’s Day stash I picked up and my thoughts on the holiday, it was fun to hear what you think about the Day.  And what your plans for Valentine’s Day weekend are!


1. Any plans for (Valentine’s Day) weekend or the weekend in general?

Working, being with Scott and Skylar, and possibly getting together with a good friend!

2. What are you Grateful For?

Could be something as simple as hot coffee in the morning or a hot shower, or as deep as having a wonderful relationship with friends or family.

I’ve posted in the past about other things I am grateful for.

Enjoy your weekend!
