Quiet Contemplation...

Life has been changing quite rapidly lately and I have been really giving a 100% effort in going with the flow. I need to remember in times like this I need to drink oodles of water and practice even more yoga- although the intention is there sometimes I get busy and forget...and life itself has been non stop. I actually carved out some free time tonight for quiet. I am house sitting and the quiet is lovely. This evening I went for a walk with a friend came home put on my cozy new fall jammies and decided to just enjoy the stillness that surrounds me. This week was bittersweet. Sweet because one of my closest and dearest friends is visiting from LA and we were able to spend some time together- Angelo's on Mulberry Street in Little Italy so yummy & the service fantastic. Yesterday Angie & I went on a tour of the garment district and went to several showroom sales- lucky me found 2 amazing sweaters and a gorgeous necklace at Elizabeth Gillett a sparkly & very zen designer who designs for Anthropologie! 
On the bitter side of the week, I received a phone call from another dear friend, Her 45 year old husband had a massive heart attack in front of her and their 7 year old son and passed away. So tragic and horrible. Words cannot describe the way my heart breaks for her and her 2 amazing boys ages 7 & 3. If you are reading this, please send a healing thought their way. I would truly appreciate it. Thank you!
After this type of week, I am looking forward to a weekend of contemplation and quiet. I will be at the yoga studio in the morning and taking class right afterward with an amazing teacher! The afternoon will be celebrating Yom Kippur with my Beloveds family- my first Yom Kippur experience. 
I wish you all a weekend of creative sparkle while giving your loved ones and extra hug...
