Hot flow, all levels. This week, I decided to throw myself into a 21 days of yoga in 31 day challenge that started on Jan 1. Because I’m a bit late, I’ll be getting Namaste fairly often across the rest of the month.
#tbt: MA’S BIRTHDAY
That gorgeous little bitty is the mamacita circa August 1959. Fierce little queen isn’t she? I can just picture her little human self thinking, “you go clean up my toys, Imma take a nap right here.”
My mom has always been into unique or personal gifts. Something that you can’t find everywhere is key! This year, I think I did alright, especially using the element of surprise.
I hid her larger gift in her home, wrapped, over Christmas when I was in town. The second gift was smaller, which I sent with a card letting her know that she’d find more in her home. I purchased both gifts at www.uncommongoods.com, where I’ve had amazing luck with getting unique, good quality gifts – highly recommend for the future.
Now onto the gifts:
– The larger one that I hid in her home was a set of two musical wine glasses. You fill them up to a certain level and they play the pitch identified. These are especially fun because they give you a song that you can learn how to play. I’d say that should be a romantic, date night in, don’t you think?
– The second, smaller gift that I sent, she also decided to bring with her over her birthday while she was visiting a family friend that lives in St. Thomas. It’s a small book entitled “What I Love about Mom” that includes 50 pages of fun questions to answer about your mom. What’s your favorite memory of her? What’s the one thing you hope to emulate? Etc. I loved the personal nature of this book and it was a lot of fun to fill out!

What memory are you re-living this week? Might it inspire you to say some loving words to someone special?
