I’m so excited, if you couldn’t tell. :p I’m back from my ridiculous absence with the thrilling news that I have officially begun training at Canopy Studio here in Athens! I couldn’t be happier. I feel like my life has taken off in a brilliant new direction, and I can’t wait to see where it goes!

Pictures of all that are forthcoming, but in the meantime, here are some snaps from my instagram account of my recent yoga progress:

A Downsizer’s “No Thanks” and “Yes Please” List

I love this! ❤ ❤ Thanks for linking it to me!

Hoarder Comes Clean

I loved TheSpark Collector’s Simple Living “Yes please/No thanks” list (see it here). Now I’m inspired to make one of my own.  I switched the order, to end on a positive note, and came up with the Downsizer’s Illustrated Guide, as follows:

No thanks!     Christmas tree
Yes please!     Christmas cactus

No thanks!     making a Christmas list of “stuff”
Yes please!     receiving donations to charity instead (Thank You friends and family)

No thanks!     too much “big picture”
Yes please!     sometimes taking a closer look

No thanks!      grass to water, mow, and feed
Yes please!      groundcover that blooms and attracts pollinators

No thanks!     formal landscaping
Yes please!     native plant rescues

No thanks!      my basement, alas, still full o’ stuff
Yes please!      my future basement sorted out, sparklingly clean, everything donated or recycled

No thanks!     me, staring in despair…
