Yoga Teacher Training 

I did two weekends of yoga teacher training this month and will do another one before the month is over. It was a month full of yoga. I taught yoga to my classmates for the first time! Although it wasn’t very long, I stepped way out of my comfort zone and I think I did pretty good. 

My last weekend of yoga teacher training before the Christmas break is this weekend. It’s going to be a big one because we’re getting graded on leading a 30 minute yoga practice as well as taking a test covering anatomy and poses. Needless to say, there’s been a lot of studying happening lately. 

I turned 36!

I celebrated my birthday this month. It was a pretty low key birthday this year, which was just what I wanted. I had a birthday dinner with my boyfriend which was delicious the weekend before my birthday and then I made a birthday cake on my actual birthday to celebrate with my family. It’s hard to believe that I’m now closer to 40 than 30 now. Does anyone else have a moment of realization like that when they have a birthday?

Winston the bulldog puppy

This little bulldog puppy came into my life during November. He’s not mine (he’s my boyfriend’s), but I’m still taking advantage of all the ear scratches and belly rubs. It’s probably been around 20 years since Iv’e spent this much time around a puppy. They’re adorable and it’s so much fun to see them experience things for the first time, but they’re a lot of work between training, cleaning up accidents, and keeping up with their high energy. 

Dinner with old friends

Earlier this month my brother and I met up with some old friends that we hadn’t seen in years. We essentially grew up together, and since we’ve all been doing our own thing, it’s been 5 or 6 years since we’ve all been together. We met up for dinner and talked and laughed for more than two hours. It was so good to catch up and we all decided that we’re going to get together again soon. I really wish that we had gotten a photo together!
