spent my saturday night shopping for the new tranquil space arlington studio we’re moving next weekend – body splash, trash cans, laundry baskets, hair ties, mops, mirrors, herbal tea. oodles of sundries necessary for welcOMing our beloved yogis.

before the shopping spree (aka oh-so-sexy saturday night adventure), i spent time working on my “bucket list.” in may i did the right hand side of the image above, and yesterday i completed the left hand side written over my new 168 hours timesheet. a great reminder to make my hours count.
