crazy how the days go by so fast.  I blinked my eyes and june was over.  

As of July 1st I took on a Yoga challenge that my instructor friend Maggie created.  The Challenge is; 30 classes in the month of July (which has 31 days!!  sneaky and brilliant to give us a day off lol)  As much as I love Bikram's yoga, I only practice 1-2 times per week.  This is the most yoga I have ever done in my life but I so excited for the progress and results of such an intense challenge.  It is also a lot of fun to be taking classes with all of the girls from work!  there are 5 others taking the challenge too and it makes class really fun, and motivates me to go.  

One Quote that has stuck with me from bikram's dialogue is "If anyone steals your happiness, you are the loser.  If you let anyone make you sad or angry, you are the loser."  It is a wonderful reminder in the back of my mind to stay positive.  And I love that yoga has that power to change your mind & body & life.  Even though summer is rushing by I am holding on to memories and the things that are making me happy... and would really love to share a glimpses of the past month!  and what is making me smile :) 

Hanging out with this skateboarding, pokemon collecting, tank top wearing boy.  He is enjoying time off to its fullest and I love that he makes no rules for summer.  

Fresh eats - blackberries, raspberries, strawberries, and melons.  OH YES

Seeing much anticipated movies... escaping the summer heat for matinee shows, put your feet up and enjoy.  

sweet packages that make me feel so loved and special.  and jared's new found love for checking the mail - he has been a card collector through e-bay.  our postal love is just about equal i would say. 

(and I now have my own scale for printing shipping labels at home.. it will be a huge money saver, yey!)

daytrips and adventures to new places, finding some of the best pizza i've ever had in my life:

holidays with friends and family, makes me really thankful.

 My patient handyman, taking care of me and our house.. and all of my little projects :) 

Fresh pots and Jared's new collection of GLAZED stuff!!

SO ready for arts picnic.  

Skies that aren't filled with smoke coulds and ash.  (colorado's wildfires have been relentless and devastating especially in this summer heat.)  

I have to so much to be happy for and for that I am thankful.  
free your heart from hatred.
free your mind from worries.
live simply.
give more.
expect less.
laugh often.

hugs and love
