i have received this link from so many people that i had to pass it along. it’s the lovely elizabeth gilbert, author of eat, pray, love.

in addition, if you’d like a BIG smile to come to your face, click this link to watch a *darling* piglet walk on the beach and get acclimated to its new home. cutest thing EVER (next to sir louis, of course)!

i have 8 days left to finish my tranquilista manuscript for new world library. any unscheduled moments have been consumed with the need to write so oodles of creative projects are on hold. i can’t wait to share the fall palette colors with you and get your feedback on the colors you want! lots of website updates, videos (to update our youtube page), and retreat prep (3rd annual hip tranquil chick retreat end of the month) is awaiting my attention. all *uber* exciting and fun projects on the horizon. merci beaucoup for your patience.

i was blessed with two bookstore dates this weekend (TOTAL treat), a shopping spree at LUSH (my holiday + v-day gifts redeemed), yummy italian dinner with beau, a great group in leesburg for my workshop/booksigning/trunk show soiree, a challenging ashtanga yoga practice, an amazing teaching circle with my teacher training mentees who are truly shining, a lovely turnout for yoga + kirtan co-led with musician wynne paris, and a fun teacher training potluck. full weekend and i feel blessed. now, gotta hunker down and write.

may this week offer you a chance to indulge your creative spirit by trying something new, starting your day with a fresh ritual, or simply sipping a new tea. xo
