You know what? I have a backlog of posts and I want to share them all, but not overload all at once! I would say I have had no time to post but that’s not true – I have had time, except I’ve been doing other things.
Ok, let’s get this show on the road!
Things that have been happening over here: I received a job offer for a promotion and I am pretty excited about it. One thing my dad used to say that I think rings true: “You need to use your head in love and your heart in business”. Now that’s not to say you shouldn’t use both, but it really helps if you love what you do (and don’t act kind of stupid in a relationship).
Do any of you use the Timehop app? I do, and what I love is that you get an email each day with whatever you tweeted the year before, on that day. The day I received the call about the new position, I also got a Timehop email with the tweet I made 365 days before:
I really believe in the work that I do, and somedays, more than others, I realize how worthwhile and important it is. It’s all about people.
So here we are. This weekend, Michael asked what I wanted to do to celebrate upcoming changes and I rambled off a silly list of things: get pizza, get a cupcake, have popcorn. So, what we did was: get gluten free pizza and cider at Flatbread Pizza Company, visit Something Sweet Without Wheat in Arlington, trekked to Penzey’s for a few spices, scooted over to Wilson Farm in Lexington to buy pretty vegetables, went to JP Licks in Davis Square, ran across the street to the theater to grab a popcorn and then finally left to see Nick Offerman at the Wilbur Theater.
It was a hilariously fun day, and I was stuffed to the gills! Also Nick Offerman (Ron Swanson, for you Parks and Recreation fans) was just stinking fantastic. To date, my favorite show.
Here’s what it looked like:
We are going skiing tomorrow at Loon Mountain in Lincoln, NH. Have you been there? It was my childhood mountain – the one where I learned to downhill ski. I have so many happy memories of Loon, and spent a lot of time there. I am really excited to share it with Michael. We are going to get on the road early so we can be there when they open at 8:30.
And today, while it snowed and we stayed inside all snuggled up, I practiced timed handstands and then took an amazing yoga class on Yogaglo called Foundations of Handstands. I highly recommend it! I spent about 5 minutes total in handstands before taking the class. My arms felt exhausted and amazing after. I love being upside down!
Speaking of upside down: for Valentine’s Day, I got Michael a trapeze lesson for 2! We are going in April (hey I had to work around the Bruins schedule). I took lessons with my sister a few years ago, but I haven’t been since. I think it’ll be a fun activity for us. Knee hangs, here I come!
