Hi my loves- I hope your week is off to a great start. Things are going pretty well here but I am definitely looking forward to the weekend. My friend Brandy is getting married and well- it’s going to be the wedding of the year I just know it!
I don’t want to just write a normal post when we all know that 11 years ago was when the twin towers were hit. I remember that day very well and how upsetting it was (and still is) to all of us. I just want to take a moment to say THANK YOU to all the men and women women who work so hard every day for our lives to be wonderful and safe and take a second to remember all of those people who lost their lives. It’s so sad. I was in college in philosophy class (hi Professor Wahman!) when it was happening and we all went to the student union and saw the towers fall on tv. I don’t want to go into the whole thing because we know how upsetting it is- but I hope you took time today to tell the people you love that you actually do love them! (Call your parents they might still be up lol)
I’ve learned that no matter what happens, or how bad it seems today, life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow. I’ve learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights. I’ve learned that regardless of your relationship with your parents, you’ll miss them when they’re gone from your life. I’ve learned that making a “living” is not the same thing as making a “life.” I’ve learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance. I’ve learned that you shouldn’t go through life with a catcher’s mitt on both hands; you need to be able to throw something back. I’ve learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision. I’ve learned that even when I have pains, I don’t have to be one. I’ve learned that every day you should reach out and touch someone. People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back. I’ve learned that I still have a lot to learn. I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel. ~Maya Angelou
Field Greens with Polenta and a side of Chickpeas, Mushrooms, Onion and Pesto
This was super easy to make. I used this kind of organic polenta. It’s actually already cooked so I just sliced a few pieces and heated it in a sauté pan. I diced the mushrooms and onion and used organic chickpeas (drained and rinsed)- threw it all together in a sauté pan as well with olive oil until they cooked down and then added my homemade pesto (I didn’t use the vegan mozz I used real parmesan cheese). SO GOOD. And vegetarian.
It was sooooo good. And yeah not dairy free. But so worth it.
Anyways- I hope you’re having a great week- living, breathing, eating, having fun, working hard, and being happy.
Most of you know already- but I am one of the teachers in the 200 and 500 hour trainings at Charm City Yoga so if you have any questions- even if you’re just thinking about the trainings (summer intensive included)- please come to the open house!
It’s my bed time- face planting into bed!
