Livin’ the dream

At the end of my yoga teacher training we did an exercise in class where we pretended like we were all getting together a year later for a reunion. As I type this I realize our reunion would be about now … We talked about what we did. The idea was if we said it as […]


Getting back to my basics

As I type this post it’s raining outside and I am sipping my coffee. I just finished my home yoga practice. (I started working on this post yesterday morning.) I won’t type long and will finish this post later as I really want to get to reading my book. When I was a little girl I […]


Yup, I wear tight yoga pants

Last month a woman wrote a blog post about why she decided to stop wearing tight yoga pants in public, which Yoganonymous reposted. Now she has clearly stated that this is just about herself and she is not telling anyone else that they shouldn’t wear tight yoga pants in public. During a conversation with her friends […]


Review Wednesday: Dry shampoo part drie

I have done two reviews in the past on dry shampoos, which you can read here and here. Today I am posting No. 3 (drie in Dutch) review. If you have been a reader of GFG! even for a short period of time you probably know that I have a smell sensitivity. I get what […]


And GFG! is back

I’m baaaack! Years ago Curt and I were in the Philly area visiting his brother and family along with Curt’s parents and grandma. Some of the family went on a canoe outing. Our nephew James was about 4 at the time. As we got closer to the canoe spot James started to recognize it as […]


And GFG! is back on break …

And not a Ross/Rachel kind of break. Earlier this week I wrote about how I needed to take a break from the blog to focus on packing and the impending move. I posted a farewell post yesterday and am now back on break. Have to get a few last minute things done before the movers arrive in […]


Bidding farewell to the Bay Area

As the last boxes are being packed and the movers will be showing up in about 24 hours I am bidding farewell to Oakland, the East Bay and the Bay Area. Curt and I came out here in 2005. He in February and me in March. We first lived in Berkeley and for the past eight […]


GFG! is taking a break …

And not a Ross/Rachel kind of break. As GFG! and The Husband get ready for the big move this week I need to focus on the last bit of packing and all that comes with it … including the stress and OMG! Am I going to run out of time before Thursday arrives? UGH! There will […]


Respecting the trademark

Before leaving my job in September I was a patent and trademark paralegal. A big part of my job was educating fellow employees on proper trademark usage of our word marks and logos. Once something is trademarked it can last forever as long as the owner uses it and protects it. If you don’t protect your trademark you […]


Review Wednesday: Spotify

A little more than a month ago I took the SPINNING® teacher training. Soon after that I took the test (and passed), which made me a certified SPINNING® teacher. One of my indoor cycling teachers has been my mentor and personal cheerleader through me becoming a yoga teacher and now an indoor cycling teacher. One of […]
