Why hello there! It’s been a while bloggies, and I’m sorry for that. I am committing to blogging once per week from here on out because that is what is realistic in my life right now.
As the holiday season is upon us, gift buying is in full swing. Being in the retail world now, boy am I sure in the thick of it! While of course it’s great to get nice things, I really have always been (or maybe more recently been) a proponent of giving the gift of experience.
Maybe it’s the wander-luster in me but I know giving someone the opportunity to experience something new really excites me. This world has SO much to offer. Forget world, even just your own town or state has SO much to offer that you probably don’t even realize. So this holiday instead of filling up your loved ones closets or homes with stuff, maybe fill up their life with a new experience.
Giving the Gift of Experience – A List for Inspiration
This post has been a long time coming. I’ve been thinking about it, writing and rewriting it in my head for weeks now. It’s sort of been my mantra or we can say an affirmation that has been with me for some time.
I stay inspired to inspire.
One of the biggest reasons I decided to start the journey of becoming a yoga teacher was to inspire others. What the practice has done for me and my life in just three short years is remarkable. So if I can share that with just a sliver of people on this earth, well then my life has a purpose right?
The thing is, sometimes staying inspired is hard. It doesn’t just happen, it takes work. It takes commitment, it takes dedication, and most importantly it takes the will to want to stay inspired.
Happy Monday friends! Boy do I have a great post for you today.
First things first though. The winner of the Strong and KIND bar giveaway is….
Becca! I used the Random Number Generator to pick the winner. Congrats Becca!
Now on to the yummy, scrumptious, melt in your mouth stuff. Andy and I attended a Harvest Dinner last week at the Saugatuck Craft Butchery.
The Saugatuck Craft Butchery was founded three years ago in Westport, Connecticut by a husband and wife who were unsatisfied with food situation in the area. It was way too hard to find good quality and local meat so they left their corporate jobs and opened up a food establishment to provide the community with grass fed, antibiotic and hormone free animal products. So cool.
Andy and I have been wanting to get to the butchery to check it out so when the opportunity arose to attend one of their eight course dinners, we jumped right on it!
This was such a cool experience and one of the best, most adventurous meals I have ever had! We sat right up at the bar seats where we had an up close view of the chef, Emily, at work. It was like a real live version of Top Chef!
