Today was such a wonderful, and happy day! The weather was great and the sun was shining soo bright. It had me day dreaming of spring for sure! My good friend Katie and I have been going to a free Yoga class at Lululemon on Sunday mornings and this morning Chris decided to join us. Each month a different studio host the yoga classes at luluLemon and todays instructor gave us quite the workout!
We were doing this one pose, and Im not sure what the name is (or if it has one) but we were balancing on our left leg, with our right leg straight out behind us, chest parallel to the ground and arms spread wide like a bird.....then she asked us to "lift up" -take the pressure off our ankle. She said "If you don't use your inner strength, core and will, you will tumble and fall". In that moment, eyes closed, naval in more, and more with each breath that I took, I felt so strong, yet perfectly light, and balanced. I realized this is all a metaphor for my life as well. I must find my inner core strength and will power to master that "strong, perfectly light and balanced" feeling in my everyday life as well. What exactly that consist of I'm not sure. But as of late I am feeling much more balanced- so maybe I am getting there!
Since the day has left me feeling strong (yet worn out)- I will leave you will 5 songs that I will be jammin' to, to get my mind right and feeling strong in 2014! (most of them aren't new)

2. Florence + The Machine- Dog Days Are Over
3. Beyonce- Partition
4. Lady GaGa- Born this Way (fast forward to about 2:55 for music)

With the rest of my day we took the dogs to the beltline for a long walk and then spent the rest of the day doing mundane things.. And heres cute puppies, who love clean and warm laundry!
