Seriously friends. Everything.
Without going into detail, let’s just say things happen in life and you get that reminder that life is short and we are not in control of certain things or how long we’re here.
Life is too short to not take the best care of ourselves that you can.
To not go after our dreams (no matter how big or scary).
To not do what we love and are passionate about.
To not tell and show the people that we love how much they mean to us every single day.
Whoa. Deep thoughts.
I try to not bring too much personal stuff on the blog, besides the daily shenanigans and all, but sometimes I can’t help myself. Life is precious friends.
Taught a little spin this morning.
Went for a very slow, quiet 8 mile run afterwards. Didn’t love the hills.
Sported my dirtiest shoes in case it started raining like it was supposed to.
Just wasn’t feeling it at all today so didn’t run my double digits I planned, but did embrace being able to run outside in this and no, it didn’t rain.
Totally random- I’m usually not a skirt runner, but wore one today. I love this skirt, but it was riding up the entire time for my run. I will be wearing it for spin classes only from now on.
Tried to chat with my neighbor for a second in the driveway when we got home from preschool. This happened.
Oh, the egg, that reminds me- it was Judah (on the left), not Joaquin (goggle boy).
Decided we needed a little extra hugging and hanging out time this afternoon. We did just that.
Hot chocolates and green tea lattes were a must.
Matcha has a bunch of great benefits- increased energy, helps with metabolism, protects skin from UV rays while increasing blood flow and oxygen levels and is loaded with antioxidants. I always say I’m going to add green tea to my daily list of things I take (apple cider vinegar, coconut oil, CocoaVia, etc.), but it doesn’t always happen. I’ve tried a few other powders in the past and haven’t been too impressed, but this one is is impressive.
I’ve only made lattes with it, but I guess you can bake with it too. I’m going to have to try that.
I had my recommended daily dose (1 teaspoon) of powder in my latte. I mixed the powder with just a little hot water, added a few drops of liquid vanilla stevia extract and then some frothed Silk Almond Coconut Milk.
It was delightful.
It was also really great in this mug today.
Mugs make a big difference sometimes. Yes?
I also got a really great email today just a bit ago, but I’m saving it for tomorrow’s post. Right now, I’m in gratitude that I have a few minutes to get dinner ready for the family and hopefully I’ll be in bed before 9.
Speaking of gratitude. I read this last night.
And we always talk about what we’re thankful for after we read our books at night. lately we’ve been singing a little song the boys learned from school. Thought I’s share our less than mediocre video we made last night.
I did not choose the subject, but the boys were pretty adamant about thanking God for it.
Have a good one.
Be in gratitude.
Have a thankful heart.
