So, lets talk about something else, shall we? How about SJOTW! Even though I've been a little sick this week, I've still been able to enjoy lots of wonderful sensory joys. Some of my favorite simple pleasures are below. What made you smile this week?
HEAR: "Riverside" by Agnes Obel
My February savasana song (recommended by a reader--thank you!). I'm obsessed. You can listen to it below:
This week was filled with QT with good friends. I was able to spend an entire weekend in Charlottesville with some dear CF friends (and Ben's friend Bobby, who I adore!), and then yesterday, I got a much-needed visit from a friend and her son--who is *too* precious for words (see above). So thankful for all of the amazing people I have in my life.
TASTE: A vanilla milkshake at The Nook in Charlottesville
After a month without "desserts," I ordered a vanilla milkshake while we were in Charlottesville. I haven't had a milkshake in years, and honestly, it was one of the most delicious things I've eaten in a long time (well, maybe since the holidays...hehe!). I felt extremely decadent eating it, and tried to be mindful enough to enjoy every. single. bite. YUM.
SMELL: Throat Comfort Yogi Tea
This tea honestly works. My throat has been killing me, but one of the few things that keeps it feeling much better is drinking buckets of this tea, all day long. I'm sipping on some as a write this. Super grateful for delicious natural medicine this week.
TOUCH: Comfy winter clothing (hats, gloves, and scarves!)
It's been pretty cold for a GA-girl lately. It snowed a couple of times last weekend in Charlottesville, and we spent quite a bit of time outside watching people compete (yes, in the snow!), so I felt very lucky to be bundled up in all of my winter gear. I heart snuggly gloves, hats, and scarves. You can never have enough of these items, can you? ;)
Other enjoyable moments of the week? Getting back to my mat on Monday after a weekend away, watching Ben compete at SuperFit, teaching crazy-packed yoga classes due to the 21-day challenge going on at the studio, working on some fun little paintings, and packaging up my cards and delivering them to the TS boutiques.
I'm hoping to spend this weekend resting up and getting better. How do you plan to spend your weekend? Whatever you do, be sure to take some time to reflect on the simple, sensory joys of the past 7 days.
