yesterday a thick mist blanketed new york city as a brief storm moved in followed by warm temperatures. the city was eery and stunning all at once as i wove around and hopped over puddles and melting ice sheets during my run. it was so great to live through a run again. those first harsh minutes turn into infinite time where you feel like you could run forever.
after my run i headed to a power vinyasa flow yoga class. lizard and half pigeon opened up so much more than my stiff hips. for that, i am grateful.
a shower and snack later…
and i was off to meet a good friend for lunch and coffee.
MUD is heavenly, and you must go if you visit nyc.
the storm slowly crept in but girlfriend at i were safe inside sipping our warm drinks and heart-to-hearting (my favorite thing)!
she is such an inspiration. i was talking to her about netflix and spotify premium, both monthly expense essentials for me, and i was taken aback when she said she had neither! i kept trying to persuade her to get one because they are so awesome, but she wasn’t interested. then she told me that she spends $30.00/month to sponsor a child in Chile through Children’s International. additionally, not only is she an amazing teacher, last night she was going to go volunteer at a center for people with HIV/AIDS. she is such an incredible and giving person. she truly inspired me yesterday to spread more love and hold more gratitude.
heading back to the train i saw this
perfect end to a foggy/stormy day. doesn’t even look like i’m in manhattan!
i made it back to brooklyn and was craving tacos. mexican food is a thing in brooklyn. it’s everywhere, and for the east cost it’s pretty damn good. ordering in tacos after cooking all day thursday for my dinner party was a good choice.
a little blurry, but alongside a modelo…mmmm mmmm!
after that, wine with a girlfriend, and a margarita with someone special were the best ways to cap off my friday night. now off to enjoy some sunshine and get outside before winter comes back!
