happy, happy october. tranquil space turns 11 years old this month and it officially feels like fall in dc. love it!

this season gives us a chance to slow it all down. consider canceling plans and staying in with a good book. head to the shenandoah mountains for a hike. bike through a park and carry a picnic. nap under the canopy of falling leaves. camp under the stars and make smores (yum!). indulge in restorative or yummy yin yoga to balance out your vinyasa practice. savor a soak in the tub.
