🎶 𝙬𝙝𝙚𝙣 𝙄 𝙙𝙞𝙥, 𝙮𝙤𝙪 𝙙𝙞𝙥, 𝙬𝙚 𝙙𝙞𝙥! 💦 @minnidip tropical monstera palm leaf for the splash pad / slip-n-slide WIN! 🌞 Scored this not-so lil gem @target 🎯 that easily seats 2 kids & 1 adult - for under $32! 🎉 Have a feeling we'll be minnidipping all Summer long with this option, as 2020's blow-up pool recently sprung a slow leak, and I've yet to convince the Hubs to get on board with the stock tank pool (and accompanying deck) trend... to be continued! 😉 #SummerOfSplash #MinniDip #DipDipHooray #TargetDoesItAgain

Spring is here. And lucky for us, flowers didn’t get the coronavirus memo

Spring finally feels as though it’s ready to stick around (despite a few random snow and bitter cold days a week ago). And let’s be honest, the warm weather sure does make Staying Home a whole lot easier when you can expand the home quarters to your own backyard! The eruption of life we call spring is not just a natural phenomenon, but a call to people to leave their winter caves and come together to celebrate the floral renaissance. And though we have just been ordered back into our caves for (at least) another month, the days are lengthening and the air is warmer, Mother Nature doesn’t care about a pandemic… and thank goodness for that!

If this past year taught me anything, it's that the power of connection is invaluable! And while working out at home has some advantages (i.e., flexibility in when & where) - there's no doubt that the energy exchange, along with the ability to have others hold you accountable cannot be replaced! 🤗 It feels SO good to be back in the CycleTheatre: with the lights 🌌 dimmed low, the beats 🎶 flowing strong, but most importantly riding alongside actual humans 👯‍♀️... a sense of community, it's what's been missing for so many of us for far too long! ♥️ ✨something this good is meant to be shared, ᴘʀᴏᴍᴏ ᴄᴏᴅᴇ: 𝙍𝙞𝙙𝙚𝙒𝙞𝙩𝙝𝙏𝙖𝙣𝙮𝙖 gets you 3 FREE rides at #CyclebarYorktown *𝘵𝘰 𝘣𝘦 𝘶𝘴𝘦𝘥 𝘰𝘯𝘭𝘪𝘯𝘦 💻 𝘸𝘩𝘦𝘯 𝘺𝘰𝘶 𝘣𝘰𝘰𝘬, 𝘰𝘳 𝘮𝘦𝘯𝘵𝘪𝘰𝘯𝘦𝘥 𝘸𝘩𝘦𝘯 𝘺𝘰𝘶 𝘤𝘢𝘭𝘭 📞 ✨ 𝘽𝙧𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙤𝙣 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙨𝙪𝙢𝙢𝙚𝙧 𝙤𝙛 𝙨𝙚𝙡𝙛-𝙘𝙖𝙧𝙚, a way to move your body & mind - thanks to Cyclebar @yorktowncenter 🚲 #RockYourRide 🔥

Teaching yoga during the global pandemic

2wks ago I taught my last (at least for now, while we all practice safe social distancing). The biggest thing I've learned from my decade of teaching yoga & one that also feels relevant to the world we now live in (amidst the novel coronavirus), is that change is constant AND necessary. ᴍᴀʏ ɪ/ʏᴏᴜ ʙᴇ ꜱᴀꜰᴇ ᴍᴀʏ ɪ/ʏᴏᴜ ʙᴇ ʜᴀᴘᴘʏ /ʏᴏᴜ ʙᴇ ʜᴇᴀʟᴛʜʏ ᴍᴀʏ ɪ/ʏᴏᴜ ʙᴇ ᴀᴛ ᴘᴇᴀᴄᴇ.

Growth isn't linear and certainly learning anything new can be an intimidating process! 👏 Lil Kickers understands this long-term effort approach, which is why their soccer series spans across 12-wks. ⚽ For her, the longevity certainly helped establish more stability and routine - which has been so great at becoming accustomed to rules, which will later translate to the more team-oriented playing she'll move into as she gets older. 🥅 But like anything else, learning a sport comes in fits and bursts, there's loads of processing and internalizing new skills for little ones! This is where Lil Kickers really shines in my opinion... the coaches have all been so patient with all the kids - regardless of age and ability level! They are great at bringing the kids together during class and mindful of their attention spans, especially with other distractions (a shared field, a noisy environment, etc). 🤗 Today marks our final day for the Spring session, we are looking forward to a new challenge... Soccer outdoors with @lilkickers_lksoccer this Summer! With classes offered as young as 18 months up to 10 years old, you can also choose from 8 indoor and 6 outdoor locations across the Chicagoland area! 🎉 Plus, the 1st class is always FREE!

Candy Cane Red & Green Pinwheel cookie recipe

Such a classic, but I decided to be a little extra (cause hey, if there ever were a time to be extra, that time is now… HoliDIY), adding a little spin (pun intended) to the pinwheels with a candy cane crust [sidenote: this also helps to hide the not-so round edges, should your pinwheels struggle to resemble a perfect circle – such as mine]! INGREDIENTS (shop for all the ingredients HERE) 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened 1 cup sugar 2 large eggs 2 teaspoons vanilla extract 2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour 1 teaspoon baking powder 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon red gel food coloring 1/4 teaspoon green gel food coloring 1 cup powdered sugar 5 tsp water peppermint candy canes, crushed finely DIRECTIONS 1. Working with 1 disk of dough at a time, roll dough out between 2 sheets of parchment paper to 1/4-in.

Seed Cycling to Balance Hormones & Boost Fertility

In particular, seed cycling is a naturopathic remedy that aims to balance estrogen and progesterone levels, not only supporting those with hormonal imbalances but also those with healthy cycles. How Does Seed Cycling Work (and the Seeds Involved) Essentially, through the lignans, minerals, vitamins, and phytoestrogens found in certain seeds, your body’s endocrine and detoxification systems are supported (which in turns helps to balance your hormones). While evidence to support seed cycling claims is insufficient, by including flax, pumpkin, sesame, and sunflower seeds in your diet you are making great choices! Additionally, flax, sesame, and sunflower seed intake has been linked to improvements in heart disease risk factors, such as high cholesterol and blood pressure levels.

Random question of the day: If your husband drove over your kid's favorite toy wagon, would you dump it or re-purpose it? 🤔 Apparently I have a hard time letting go of belongings 😂 but on the flip side, this wagon flower pot project may just be my favorite thing that probably should've gone into the trash (but thankfully didn't)! 🌷🌻🌹🌼 [swipe to catch a glimpse of the wagon in better days... with all 4 functioning wheels] #crazyplantlady #repurposedgoods #ormaybeimahoarder
