inspiration, gratitude & surprises

29 Mar

dance

This weekend is packed but it should be a fun one! Tonight my girlfriend, Taline is coming over for a night of food, wine, wedding talk (she’s also my maid of honor), tv and hanging. We are both in need of some quality time together. Tomorrow I finally start ballet classes. I’m reaaaaaally excited and slightly nervous I’ll make a fool of myself. It’s been twelve years since I’ve danced. Like riding a bike, right? That reminds me I have to buy ballet shoes this afternoon! After class I’m stopping over at my gorgeous cousins house for an afternoon glass of wine to celebrate her birthday. Then Brian and I are meeting our dinner club crew, Rachel & PJ and Loni & Mike for a night out on the town. For those of you who don’t know, once a month we pick a new restaurant to all go to. This month we picked Mercado, a mexican style restaurant in Santa Monica. Having dinner with this crew is something I look forward to every month! Then Sunday we are off to an easter brunch with Brian’s family and in the evening we are hosting a birthday party for my step-father, Irv.

What are you guys doing this weekend??

What inspired me this week?

our bright new garden plants. Lavender in lime green planters is quite a brilliant combo.

What am I grateful for this week?

I had my first essay published on MindBodyGreen! I can officially say I am “published” now.

a date night with two lovely ladies Katie & Erin. A dinner filled with inspiring talks about writing, being authentic, love and traveling.

hanging with my girlfriend Melissa. To say that I adore her would be an understatement.

the wedding is coming together!

What surprised me this week?

How many people continue to respond to my piece about anxiety. It’s incredible how many people suffer with it on different levels.
