Friday Thoughts

In no particular order, here are some of the thoughts running through my head this cold and sunny Friday morning.

  • I miss taking pictures.  I find that I either see everything in the world as an opportunity to snap a shot or I completely forget to pick up my camera.  These days fall into the latter camp but I would like to change that, I miss seeing the world in terms of frame, composition, and light.

  • My momma made her kids the most amazing Valentine’s EVER!!! Check it out here.


  • February is flying by! Talk about a short month, I feel like it started yesterday and will be over tomorrow!

  • I love teaching.  I’ve been teaching on and off since I was 18 and am so thrilled that the pleasure and satisfaction I get out of it keeps growing as I grow as a teacher.  Right now I teach three Modern dance technique classes, two Barre Conditioning, and one mat Pilates class a week and love each and every one of them.

 

  • Going out for Valentine’s Day brunch is just as good-maybe better-in my book than going out for Love Day dinner.  Tate and I skipped the madness and had an awesome mid-morning meal at Bluegrass Grill.  It was sweet and unique and a treat to go out like that on a Thursday morning.  We stayed in last night and made ourselves an awesome dinner.

  • As much as I love teaching I am feeling bored with A) my music options and B) my mat Pilates exercises.  If you teach any studio classes I would LOVE some music recommendations and if you teach or do mat Pilates I would LOVE to hear what your favorite exercises are.

  • I have been completely lost my motivation to cook.  Meals these days revolve around veggies, beans, eggs, cheese, and yogurt.  Boring (and delicious) sustenance food.   I crave Spring and an abundance of fresh food.

  • I’ve also lost my sweet tooth.  I don’t really miss it at all but occasionally wish I had a desire to bake because that’s a lovely winter activity.

  • I am really looking forward to a mellow, unplanned weekend.  I have a lot of life stuff to catch up on-and sleep!
Have a great weekend!

    Your moms song is amazing, I’ve listened to it over and over again. Perfect gift! I have never commented, but I have read your blog for a couple of years. I love your perspective on health, and fitness. Your blog just feels so authentic. Just read the post on embracing your fitness and thickness, I really needed this. I get so caught up in trying(mostly failing) to get what I think would be super skinny. I let it control my mood, how I treat my family, and I hate it. Ugh. And all it does I’d lead to a vicious guilt cycle.
    Thank you for posting. Tell your mom her voice is beautiful!

      Thank you!! I miss it too and hope I return to it again soon, unfortunately life has been very challenging lately and my energy has been elsewhere. I really appreciate you letting me know though!
