Rainy Days....

Ah it's Monday and rainy...I think tonight will be the perfect evening to snuggle in and settle down with "Tranquilista" and a hot cup of's my third time reading this book and I have learned so much and each time I pick it up I learn something new. I am also happy because I finally found a yummy yoga studio in my Boyfriends town! Yay! It is called Stone Yoga and is located in Teaneck, NJ..we went to scope out the location and serendipitously the lovely Charlotte Stone was there- she gave us a tour of the studio, goodies and a schedule. I think I am going to like it there...I am one lucky girl- I have 2 studios I can call my yoga home!! Bonne Nuit..xoxo

The Flag..

It all started around the Holidays. The ever so lovely, Micaela, of "Dolce Vota" wrote a blog post about her beloved brother, Marco who would soon be deployed. She wrote on how sad she would be without having Marco around to celebrate the holidays with  friends and family. Micaela graciously asked her blogger friends if they would mind sending Marco holiday cards. I thought that this was a fantastic idea, and popped a card in the mail. As we rang in 2010 Marco's Birthday was approaching and Micaela graciously asked again if we would send a card to help Marco celebrate his Birthday. I thought this was a fantastic idea and sent a card off..
Imagine my suprise when last Friday I arrived home from work to a package from Marco! Inside this package was a US Flag that had been flown over US airspace! Along with the flag, there was a certificate letting me know the specifics of when the flag had been flown as well as a photograph of Marco and his crew. I was so very touched by Marco's thoughtfulness. Currently I rent and decided that I will pass the flag onto my 5 year old Nephew, Miller so that he may fly it over his house.
Thank you Marco for your thoughtful gesture and Thank you Micaela for the reminder that no matter what your political views, there are so many men and women in Iraq and Afghanistan fighting so that we may have the freedom that we enjoy.
