It’s getting late, and after the day I’ve had I should probably be getting to sleep, but I was feeling particularly content and full of gratitude. I’ve been on vacation in Southern California for almost a week now, and with only a couple of days left I’ve definitely been full of the “Does this have to end?” attitude. During this trip I have been consistently reminded of how lucky I am to have so many amazing, supportive, beautiful people in my life. People who I can be completely myself with, who understand my need for Harry Potter and tacos, and who never hesitate when I ask them if they can take yet another picture of me in a yoga pose. A few days ago I was reunited with my best friend of 15 years and after having not seen each other in person for at least 8 of those years, I was blown away by how effortless our friendship still seems. No awkwardness, plenty of sharing, laughter, and silly moments. Oh, and she was gracious enough to take yoga pictures of me (which are up on Instagram at @yogi.meg) while we enjoyed the beach. My favorite part? We were standing on the beach, our feet in the water, contemplating whether or not we should just jump in, and she goes, “If you’re up for it, I’m up for it.” Who would say no to that?
I’ve been all over the place while I’ve been here, going from Canyon Lake to Manhattan Beach to Laguna Hills to Laguna Beach to Hollywood…which is where I currently sit in my friend Abbey’s studio rambling on to you all. Today was a special day–thanks to the generosity of another friend (have I mentioned that I know some excellent people?) we were able to go to Disneyland and it was Abbey’s very first time EVER. I’m a Disneyland veteran and it was such a fun day sharing the experience with her. If you’re able to visit this summer definitely go–it’s the park’s 60th (Diamond) Anniversary and it’s looking pretty spectacular. Tomorrow we head to Santa Monica to enjoy a relaxing beach day and I’m thinking of changing my career slightly to yoga teacher/beach bum. I have a feeling I would be fairly amazing at it. I’m ending this now with a full and grateful heart.
Goodnight and Namaste!
