I suppose it's time for a new post. This time around the mood is not light and cheery. It's grumpy and anxious. Things making the author grumpy: Her bedroom radiator. The abrupt and unannounced arrival of Winter. Life conditions that have required an uptick in spending. Life conditions that have impeded regular exercise. Life conditions … Continue reading Thanks-giving November: A 21-Day Gratitude Challenge
For the first time in a while, I'm all bundled up. I've got on these yoga pants that are soft and cozy on the inside, I'm wearing my fluffy indoor booties, and I've got a nice warm jacket on. It's not actually so cold outside (55F / 13C), but the heat isn't really on yet … Continue reading Going Green(er)
It's early September and the slightest hint of fall is in the air. In this post I talk about how my knitting is going, delete my gmail app, and take other steps to "digitally declutter" my life.
It's been about a three-month while since my last post. Has there been much lunalution-ing since then, you ask? ...Yes. And no. And yes.
Hello Friends! I find myself in Terminal 1 of FRA. When I started drafting this blog post I was in Terminal 1 of JFK on my way to Frankfurt. It's now just about a week later, and an excellent conference and some solid sightseeing has transpired. At the time I was very unhappy about the … Continue reading Memoir May

Greetings from Spring Break! From where I stand now, March seems like the absolutely lovely month I know it to truly be (#birthmonthbestmonth). But looking back, the start of the month saw me facing long and stressful days. I ended up skimping on cardio and strength training, reading little more than the allotted 15 mins per … Continue reading March: Yoga, Rainbow Valley, and the Pied Piper
Hip hip hooray! The best month of the year is officially underway! I may be a bit biased as a March baby... and it helps that I grew up in Southern California. When I moved to places that actually have winter, I was shocked (and slightly offended) to hear that others did not have such … Continue reading March Reset
