holiday stress.

the holiday season has just begun and i’m already stressed!
i head home (back to IL) in less than a week and i’ll be gone for an entire month!
i’m worried about leaving leo even though i know he’ll be in good hands.
i’m worried about being gone for so long too. as much as i love being home it’s hard to be there in a way.
everyone’s lives go on without me there and it’s difficult to find where i fit in sometimes.


to combat the stress i’ve been working hard to take extra great care of myself.
j and i just got new phones (samsung galaxy s3s!!! totally upgrade from my shitberry i mean blackberry…) and now that i have an actual smartphone i downloaded a bunch of apps to help me.

i’m totally obsessed with “water your body”. it’s a free app that tracks how much water i drink a day and reminds me to keep drinking.
i also love “daily yoga”. another free app that lets me download different yoga videos i guess you could call them. because i’m just starting out i do the beginner videos which last ten minutes and i can so feel the burn. today i did “yoga breathing for beginners” and felt so relaxed after i was done. the “seated poses for beginners” video totally kicks my butt.
the last app that i use to help keep me at my best is called “buddhist meditation”. again, a free app, that gives you a motivational quote to think about and times you for three minutes (when starting out) to let you fully explore ponder the quote. at the end of the three minutes a nice little chime goes off and then you can go on with your day feeling fresh and revitalized.

love my smartphone and love doing things to help keep me at my best.
what do you do to stay sane during the stressful holiday season?

lately on instagram...
it is most certainly puppy love ❤ just be here with me. 
signed: the moon. the stars. your still-hot-cup-of-coffee. your daughter. your son. your spouse. your heart. the green grass. the wild flowers. the waters you long to swim in. the color yellow. the color blue. your favorite poem. your favorite blanket. the wind in your hair. the waves on the ocean. the mountain air. your dad. your mom. the rain. the ice-cream cone. the butter sizzling with garlic in the frying pan. the grocery clerk with the sad, kind eyes. postcards waiting to be sent. the city squirrel. the county squirrel. jupiter. the photo album. your grandma's rosary. your favorite song. ink and paper. your best friend. the money in your wallet. the fork in your hand. brushes and paint. downward facing dog. the color turquoise. the almost invisible shade of pink. god. the skyline. the earth beneath your feet. a hammock. the shade of a giant tree. this moment, right here, now. your bones. your belly laugh. your breath. your breath. your breath. (quote from pinterest) a short list of things i love: america, cocktails, red lips, my chalkboard, grilled food but most importantly long weekends spent with my loved ones. happy birthday america! thanks for giving us the day off to celebrate 🍻
