Here’s to another year of reinvention

At the end of my yoga teacher training in May 2014 we did an exercise in class where we pretended like we were all getting together a year later for a reunion. We talked about what we did. The idea was if we said it as if it did actually happen it would make it more real. We […]


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 […]


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 […]


Movin’ on up … to Oregon

If you didn’t take the chance to visit us while we’ve lived in the Bay Area unfortunately for you, it’s too late. After being in the Bay Area for almost 10 years Curt and I are taking the plunge and moving to Portland in mid-January. It’s exciting and scary. I have lots of good friends […]


Celebrating community

Yoga has given me the opportunity to meet so many great people and make some amazing friends. I regularly take classes at two yoga studios in Oakland/Berkeley. One of the studios, Namaste, which has a total of three studios in Oakland and Berkeley, celebrated its 10th anniversary. And Namaste threw a big party today. There was music played by Adrienne […]


Burning calories out on the dance floor

On Saturday night Curt and I went to a wedding, which was attended by a few other good friends. It was a beautiful ceremony and a great party. Free flowing sparkling wine and beer among some other adult beverages. I took part in wine, sparkling wine and water. I had some delicious lamb for dinner […]


Take Them a Meal

I feel like cancer is affecting so many people I know and care about. One of my friends, who is younger than I am, is battling testicular caner. I think we can all agree that cancer just sucks! My friend lives in Oregon. Curt and I are showing support as much as we can even […]
