Hi friends. How was your weekend? Mine was really nice. Catch up on part one – a yoga teacher training reunion, a 9-mile long run, meeting up with a PBR reader and more. Part two of my weekend was equally as fantastic and involved an Italian dinner, going to see Bridesmaids, teaching yoga, getting an iPhone (!!!!) and a family birthday celebration. Unfortunately, I’m not up for blogging about it tonight.
I have a lot on my mind right now. Remember how I mentioned a few weeks ago in my “Let’s Get Real” post that a family member was having heart surgery? Well, the day is here. My grandmother is having open heart surgery on Monday. Needless to say she is on my mind tonight.
I am the oldest of four grandchildren and my grandmother and I have been extremely close since day one. She has always been active and in great health so this surgery has come as a bit of a surprise. She is having a valve replacement and will be in the hospital for the next week.
I would appreciate your prayers, positive thoughts and support as she goes through this. I will let you know how everything goes.
While we’re on the topic of family, happy Father’s Day to my dad.
I have my dad to thank for my love of cooking and Brandon’s love for grilling on his Big Green Egg! I can’t even tell you how many questions he’s answered about cooking and grilling and how much advice he’s given. We are so lucky to have him as a resource! He is a totally self taught cook who can pull off anything from a 14-layer cake to prime rib on the grill. Ah-mazing!
I’ll see you guys tomorrow with more news. Love to you all.
