Life Lately

HELLO!

Guess what. I have five weeks left before I’m donedonedone with grad school and officially a master. Of something. In theory public health but it might actually be a masters in figuring out exactly what I have to do and doing only that…. I kid, I kid.

Only problem is that between now and June 3rd, I have so much crap to do it’s mildly staggering. But! It’s fine, pshhh whatever. I balance my school nonsense with fun life things so it’s all good.

Such as! Semi-annual yoga retreat at Westerbeke was a few weekends ago, which was awesome and restorative and fun as always (though missing two of my besties, waaaah. Good thing we’re going again next May, I can make up the shenanigans in spades).

This last weekend was exactly what I needed, when I needed it! Thank heavens for my semi-annual yoga retreat at Westerbeke Ranch with my yoga fam — laughter, 8 hours of yoga in 2 days, delicious food, beautiful surroundings, and best friends. There is something about the energy of this place that soothes the soul and calms the mind, and I wouldn’t give it up for the world.

This particular retreat came right smack in the middle of my second (of three) rounds of midterms this quarter, and couldn’t have been better timed. To completely disconnect for two days was exactly what I needed, whether I knew I needed it or not. A chance to see old friends who have been gone too long, to laugh with the friends I might have seen only a few weeks ago, and to let my soul fly free in yoga is a beautiful thing – I am so grateful for being given this chance to relax. Photos are often more eloquent than words, so I’ll just leave it to the photos to do the sharing.

Yoga, delicious food, and dear ones. A fabulous weekend away at a yoga retreat that I wished would never end, ever. The photos don’t quite do it justice, but I had fun taking them anyway. Vacation photo dump, wheee!

Ommmm.
