Packed full of Summer

You know you are having a fun summer when you are too busy to keep up with your own blog.  I am really loving my summer thus far and we are only one month in.  I am making the most of every day.   Tuesday I treated myself to a pedicure and an icecream cone.  Salty Caramel from The Hop Icecream Shop on Merrimon Avenue in Asheville.  That was awesome.  

I woke up sore as hell today because I have been practicing my yoga every single day and also I ran yesterday on the treadmill and got a massage.   I have to take it easy today though, my body aches.  I will get on my mat  because my Yoga teacher, Brenda Star Walker, tells me all the time to practice yoga on days you brush your teeth.  Too funny.

Other news, I had 2 tacos yesterday and finished reading “The Help” by Kathryn Stockett.   That book was awesome.  You should check it out, its about the stories from a maid’s perspective in the South when there was so much segregation in the 50’s/60’s.  Really really good.

For the last week, I have been housesitting at my friends luxurious, amazing house on the West side of Asheville.  I feel like I am on a staycation.  And as soon as this stint is over, I am heading to see my mom and dad and my sister in South Georgia, then I am hopping over to Hilton Head Island.

I get to see my sis Jane and niece Josie in less than a week

Last Saturday was amazing, I did 2 scary things in one day.  I boated down section 4 of the Chatooga River with Justyn.  This is the same river that Deliverance was filmed.  There are many waterfalls to boat down and its plain scary.  After boating the wild and scenic river I did a solo gig at Humble Pie in Long Creek, South Carolina.  I have not done that type of gig since my cross country tour in November.   Gotta do things out of your comfort zone because it really does challenge you and enhances your life.

Well I hope that your Summer is amazing and that you are taking every day as an adventure and living life to the fullest.

Much Love,

Camp Yogaville

Hi folks,  Camp Yogaville in Virginia completely had me unplugged for a while.  It was a camp for kids age 7-15 and I got to be one of the staff members.

I was on the kitchen crew and musical team.  I had such an amazing time.

The kids were so sweet and cute and hanging with new friends was priceless.

We went to the lake for a day, tubing, we did a talent show, hiking, arts and crafts and went to Satsang at the Ashram.  It was amazing watching children become little Yogis.
