Please email me with any requests or suggestions of possible favorites that you would like me to share!

This week’s Friday’s Favorites

  1.  This week I am reading: The American Marriage  by Tayari Jones – you can find your copy HERE.  It’s pretty popular right now in book clubs and part of Oprah’s recommended Book Club series. I knew nothing about it but decided to dive right in. A book has to capture me within the first 3 pages or it will live on my nightstand for the next 4 years as I pretend to get through it. I have to tell you…it had me at hello. So far this story is so interesting and riveting. The writing is engaging and creates a hungry desire for more. I want to keep reading and can rarely put it down. My favorite line from the book is, “But home isn’t where you land, it’s where you launch.” I don’t think I could love that more. Get your copy today and then join me for a virtual book club on Sunday April 8th from 8:30pm to 10. Details will be on my social media and website soon!
  2.  This week I am doing yoga! Actually I have been using this particular video for a while now. My schedule doesn’t necessarily allow me to attend a class regularly and I needed a pick me up. I needed someone or something to understand me and understand what I needed out of an exercise routine. I am preparing my body (and mind) for surgery next week (just a simple meniscus tear repair) but still will be out for a few week – away from my normal schedule and work routine. The theory was to give my body as much strength and positive movement as possible beforehand so I could recover faster. Fingers crossed!  So for the last month or so I have be doing yoga in my living room (with the curtains closed for fear of judgement from my neighbors) to this most amazing video I found:  Yoga with Adriene – Yoga Morning Fresh.  Adriene has an entire library of videos she has made for nearly every situation you can think of and I absolutely adore her personality and her approach to practicing yoga. She is beyond authentic. I want to reach through the screen and hug her because I feel like I don’t need to have been practicing yoga for the last century to still get something out of her videos. If you want an amazing way to start your day, then I recommend this one for sure!
  3.  This week I am listening to: A new podcast called The Secret Room. People, if you like behind the scenes snipits, deep dark secrets or just bizarre stories from strangers lives, then this is a podcast for you. I discovered this gem this week and love it already. Telling stories that no one ever tells, is their claim to fame. If you have ever been a fan of Post Secret then you like this as well!

I hope your week was filled with amazing moments and interesting finds! I would love to hear about them. Comment below to share from your week. Take care!
