Happy Memorial Day! It’s my hope that your day was full of as much gratitude and remembrance as it was cookouts and pool time.
I was really fortunate to spend my Memorial Day morning at the yoga studio teaching class.
One of my students (who has been with me since the beginning over four years ago) is a Marine Corps veteran who served in Afghanistan and lost too many friends while he was there. His practice, service and resilience inspire me and having his presence in the studio this morning gave me chills. I can’t even imagine how he’s served, what that felt like and what he’s been through. He spent the weekend placing flags on veterans graves with his two boys. I have so much gratitude for the women and men who have served our country.
After teaching, taking and then teaching a private it was time to relax and enjoy the holiday. One of our yoga friends invited us to his rooftop pool. The views were pretty great.
As was this appetizer of watermelon with feta, basil and aged balsamic.
What was even better than pool time was meeting our friend’s new labradoddle, Lulu.
She’s seven weeks old and a sweet ball of fur! I love puppies and have already negotiated my way into puppy sitting this cute one while our friend is traveling soon. 🙂
I took my two sweet girls for a long walk when I got home. We walked for an hour while I caught up with my mom and grandmother. This is how Sullie is feeling now. We are all ready for bed!
Hope you had a great Memorial Day!
