Fall and My Favorite Memory

Processed with Snapseed.

Day 27!!!

I ran again yesterday and it felt SO good! The break was needed and really I feel out of necessity because everything was just “off” last week. I knew on Sunday though this was going to be a really great week. I just felt it. This run was 6 miles on my trails and I felt so focused in. I got myself some Hoka’s to try out so I’ll let you know how I like them after I run in them a bit more. It is an honest review IF I do … zero affiliation.


My meditation has been fantastic this week. I feel a calm and peace I haven’t felt in awhile and also an excitement for magic in the air. I leave for Amsterdam in 15 days and I always get excited/nervous when I head out on an adventure. My mom gets here in 2 weeks and stays for 2 weeks so my boys are excited too!


Fall is in the air and the air is turning crisp. It is apple picking season (we have already been once!), pumpkin patches, corn mazes, fall 5k’s and warm drinks time of year! I do live in Chicago, so it wouldn’t surprise me if it was 95 degrees next week though WHICH hopefully not because next weekend is the Chicago Marathon and a bazillion of my friends are in town!!!


The next month is pretty exciting and Halloween is just around the corner!!! Jess and I are starting out our new month at ENLIGHTEN YOGA as well October 1st. The theme this month is RELEASING ANGER and it is going to be pretty dang powerful and special! You can sign up or get more information on our FACEBOOK PAGE. We also announced our next workshop with the theme “LETTING GO” and that will be on October 7th, 7-8:30pm.


Question of the Day

To find the 30 questions I will be answering this month … check back to THIS original blog post.

  1. If you could go back in time and re-live one memory, which one would it be? Why?

It is funny to me this question is today. I wouldn’t believe it or would have thought I rigged it if I didn’t see the original post these questions were on.

Since it is today, September 27th … And this is the question … I would relive a moment that happened this day two years ago. It is a special one. THE most special one next to the birth of my boys. I remember the way the air felt on my skin even. The feelings in my heart and belly. The sounds of the people around and then most beautiful and soothing and exotic sound I ever heard. That moment forever changed the course of my life. I know what I wearing. I know where I was standing. I know the smile I was wearing. I know that feeling. I relive it a lot. Frequently. Some moments take your breath away and some moments make you forget you are in this world. My little tiny bubble of a moment. A moment that turned into an hour and half. My memory. Forever in my heart. That was the moment I knew love and magic were really … like REALLY real. And over the past two years, that moment and those feelings have never left me. And I know they never will. That is my truth … The heart never lies. So follow it.

    Your peace is an earthly circumstances based peace. True peace only comes from a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, not a superficial meditation class. When the real storms hit, only an anchor based on faith in Jesus Christ will reveal true peace, not a phony yoga class.

    • I appreciate your perspective as you like to share it on here. I admire your faith John. If my personal journey with God and peace is offensive to you, I would ask that you just look elsewhere. There is no need for bashing. There is enough love and peace to go around. We all find it in our own way and at our own time. I wish you well on your journey.

  2. John says:

    It’s not bashing, it’s the truth,. Ever wonder why no place, person, or event truly satisfies that empty feeling in your heart. And certainly not yoga. Only Christ will fulfill your thirst. The sad part is, you are deceiving not only yourself, but others.

    Such a beautiful post (as always!). What a lovely memory to relive… and share with us. It brought a big smile to my face and better than that, made me believe in love and magic too ?
