bonjour from le beau’s cabin in the woods. we returned from nyc at 3am this morning after a 7-hour sprint through the fabulous city. our efforts have turned 180 degrees to enjoy a few final moments of tranquility before the rush of 2011. ahhhh, fireside at the cabin.

our usual 4-hour bus ride to nyc took 7 hours. i’ve never seen such crazy traffic and the city was absolutely electric. still recovering from the crazy snowstorm, hoards of tourists, and filled to the brim. note le beau and i at the start of the bus journey (top photo) filled with such excitement – no idea the craziness that was to ensue (sitting 1 hour outside the lincoln tunnel). despite best laid plans for a 2-3 hour leisurely tea time at radiance tea house with amanda (2nd photo), we settled for a 45-minute cup of rose green tea at the jivamuktea cafe and quick catch up before i hit the yoga mat. and oh how i needed the yoga mat! felt amazing after the laborious journey. then le beau, keith (a fellow jivamukti teacher training grad + beautiful aussie), and moi headed to pure food and wine for a 3-hour raw food sensory experience (bottom 6 photos) topped off with chamomile rose tea. wowza, what a treat and we saw kathy griffin. um, that doesn’t happen everyday. whew, 7 hours a la new york!

i’m full of gratitude for another amazing year full of challenges, growth, and abundance. le beau and i discussed how 2011 had to be quieter as there is no book tour, surgery, or studio build-out on the horizon! brought strappy heels, sequin beanie, and spring TranquiliT samples to rock fireside tonight and debating a nap so that i can stay bright-eyed and bushy-tailed to see the ball drop.

wishing you and yours a magical, sparkly conclusion to 2010. this is going to be a *good* year! sip some bubbly or sparkling pamplemousse rose perrier and bask in a fresh start. merci beaucoup for joining me on this journey of life. it’s a joy to be connected. bisous.
