This bohemian style shoot was late in the winter when Stacie Yue and I were sick of the cold weather. We took a Sunday off to travel down to Southern Utah and visit Goblin Valley. It was so refreshing to feel the sun kiss our skin! Personally, I had never been to Goblin Valley. It was breathtaking to see all the formations and the red, red sand! In all honesty, I felt right at home.
Here is a currently list. It has been a while since I have journaled like this!
Reading Mexican White Boy by Matt de la Pena. I heard amazing things about the book and the author. Plus, he fits in with the demographic and interests (baseball) of some of my students. I tried to recommend the book to one of my students yesterday, and he pulled it out of his backpack; he was already reading it!
Listening to There is a bit of an obsession with cover songs on Spotify!
Loving Working out. I didn't think it would catch on for me, but it has. The days that I don't go, my body can truly feel it.
Eating LOTS of these Lentils called Madres Lentils. I had to order them off Amazon because I couldn't find them in the store again. They taste delicious, can be cooked for a minute in the microwave, and they are jam packed with fiber. I am also loving the Halo Top ice cream.
Smelling Spring from the blossoms in the air!
Hearing A lot of people are talking about empowerment of women. I have enjoyed hearing a different take on feminism. I have surrounded myself with women who talk about this on the daily and strengthen each other.
Releasing This one feels personal. Feel free to talk about it with me sometime :)
Embracing The help of my husband. I am highly independent, and I have had to learn to allow help. My husband has been taking on some of my blogging duties and helps with tasks that I normally would do myself, but have become too busy for. I have embraced the fact that two is better than one.
Watching All the shows on Netflix! Just finished season 2 of The Path with Spencer. We moved onto Conspiracy Theory documentaries. Clearly just for fun, but they are addicting and like mini history lessons. On my own time, I am watching Shameless. I overheard one of my students talking about it and decided to dive into the seasons, even though I had previously turned away from it. As it turns out, it is a wonderful show with a lot of "ah-ha" moments for me about what some of my students might be dealing with in their home life. Perspective.
