Good morning! Here’s what I’m working with over here…
A grumpy golden retriever! Wednesday morning is my “sleep in morning” in that it’s the only day of the week that I start at 6:30 a.m. instead of 5:30 a.m. but apparently Sullie didn’t think 6 a.m. was any kinder of an hour than 5 a.m. When I turned the light on she curled into this little ball and would NOT get up. I called her five times to go outside and she wasn’t budging. Generally, she doesn’t like to get up before it’s light out. Ha! It’s a tough life she leads. 😉
Speaking of being up early…did you see the blood moon lunar eclipse this morning? I got to view it on my way to teach yoga and it was breathtaking. The photo above is from the Associate Press from Casper, Wyoming but it was equally as stunning here in Charlotte.
“Absorb the energy this Full Moon is bringing to you, along with what this eclipse will bring – an honest look at the dark and the light in your life, your choices, and your goals.”
I recommend reading her full post. It’s good stuff. (And yes…I like astrology! :))
Rewinding to last night…I was lucky to spend the evening with these lovely ladies. (Katie, Jen, Ksenyia, Julie, Brittany) I organized a small group of girls to visit Carolina Facial Plastics where Dr. Kulbersh gave a very interesting and informative presentation on aging and skin care. I have been working with Dr. Kulbersh for 10 months and what I love most about him is his focus on enhancing your natural beauty. It’s refreshing! The number one takeaway from the evening was invest in a good quality sunscreen and wear it every single day! It’s the best thing you can do for anti-aging efforts and for protecting your skin. Read Brittany’s post for more Q & A.
Another thing I loved about the evening? The food. I was excited to see that the event was catered by Passion Food Catering. My favorite local catering company! On this plate we have pumpkin hummus and tabbouli tartlets with kalamata olive, brie and apple skewers with butter rum drizzle, asparagus, walnut and stilton crepe roulades, roast beef and arugula croissant bites and shrimp and snow pea skewers with a sweet and sour sauce.
And after trying one of the espresso brownies topped with cookie butter I picked up the tray and insisted everyone else do too. They were amazing!
I’ll be back later today with the apple cinnamon oatmeal recipe. Have an amazing day!
Are you into astrology? I confess to reading my yearly, monthly and weekly horoscopes on the regular.
Anyone else have a grumpy pup in the AM?
