Back in the Game :)

It's so wonderful to be home and back to my green smoothies :) I love to travel and see the world but I also love my routine and checking off those to-do lists.

My flight home was delayed due to bad weather, but that was OK because it created a fantastic opportunity for a Starbucks stop and allowed me to edit some pictures from a recent photo shoot. So, I was able to get quick a bit of work done yesterday while sipping on my little treat :P

It was encouraging to see this little stand at the airport and snapped this picture just for you :-) I'd already planned ahead and didn't need any of these, but it was still fun to see.

Monday morning I hiked to the top of a bluff with friends (in Texas) before we had to fly home. It was a beautiful view! It was quick, though - there was a cave to the right of this picture and something started hissing at us rather loudly. Needless to say, we skedaddled. Quickly. I admit it was a slightly scary experience since we couldn't tell what kind of animal we were up against :/

This was yesterday's breakfast. A dehydrated cereal that a dear friend made, served with Greek yogurt and frozen blueberries. Yum! Here's the link to the recipe she used. I can wait to give it a try myself!

Oh, and this picture is from Saturday night . . . Remember the Alamo! The weekend was fun, super fun and I loved making new friends and reconnecting with the tried & true :)

And, I think one of the greatest reminders I came away with from the conference is that our bodies don't have souls, but our soul has a body. The physical is important but our soul will live forever. It also reminds me to look deeper than outward appearance when I'm cultivating relationships. Thoughts?


And, for a workout update? This morning I was more than ready to get back into it :) Wow. It's scary how fast you loose endurance!!! Running is definitely on the tomorrow's list . . . It's late now, almost midnight and I'm hitting the sack. Pleasant dreams! More to come :)

Sounds like you had a wonderful trip to Texas, minus the hissing creature.

I stopped at a rest stop in Jersey recently. Surprised to see similar stands! Healthy food is the new "thing":-)

So glad to hear this! I'm excited about the future - hopefully we can create more and more healthy options :-)
