Scenes from a Dreamy Weekend

Yogis and Friends

I really do feel as if I am waking up from a dream . . . remembering it, savoring it, writing it down to recall it, re-live it, and most importantly, being incredibly grateful that it is all happening!

Ok. So, what is this "IT" you may be asking and wondering? The "IT" is a combination of beautiful surprises; and I will break them down as follows:

- Last week I received an email from an editor at "Natural Home and Garden Magazine." She wrote: "I  am the Lifestyle Editor at Natural Home & Garden magazine, and I am interested in featuring your quilt pillows in our upcoming issue. We are putting together some props for the cover photo shoot. The theme is Creating Cozy, and I think your pillows would be perfect. Is there anyway we could have you send a few pillows to our offices before the end of the day on Thursday?" I think you can probably guess my reply; but I can give you a visual re-enactment of my response because I am pretty sure it went something like this: screeching, jumping up and down, more screeching, running around the house in excitement, and more screeching. {The pillows will be featured in the Jan/Feb issue.} 


- Saturday was the "All You Need is Love" benefit and it was magical! We had a wonderful attendance and amazing support from the community. The silent auction I organized raised $2,120 and the benefit raised over $2,500 more for Brita and her family. Brita and her adorable daughter, Alabama stopped by the benefit and she is ever more lovely and beautiful in person. She is also incredibly grateful for all of the love and support her and her family are receiving on a daily basis. So on behalf of Brita and her family, THANK YOU!! 


- Saturday also marked the launch of my new company: "Mindful Octopus" As you may know, I have been on a journey to becoming a storytelling yoga teacher for kids. It has truly become life changing and I look forward to sharing more with you about the Mindful Octopus, as it continues to develop. 


- Sunday began with one of the most beautiful baby showers I have ever attended and ended at "The Happiest Place on Earth." 


So, Yes! "IT" has been a whirlwind of a dream and I am loving every minute of it!
