A DAY IN THE PARKS

Eleanor and I are so excited to share this post with you. Today is moms day off, so we are off to the parks. We are so fortunate to live around the block from the Alice Keck Park Memorial Gardens and Kid’s World at Alameda Park.

It may not look like it, but we’ve been up since 4:30 am.

I did say we live right around the corner from the parks, but I thought it would be a good idea to drive just in case Eleanor came up with a different plan.

We enjoy feeding the ducks and turtles at the garden koi pond.

The Memorial Garden features a collection of 75 different trees, and plant species. The Alice Keck Park Memorial Garden Self-Guided Tree & Plant Tour includes a sensory garden with audio posts, interpretive Braille signs, walking paths, picnic areas; and Gazebo.

A butterfly garden includes host plants for butterflies and moths.

Moving right along, we spent the rest of the day swinging and sliding at Kids World.

We hope you enjoyed your day in the parks with us.

kundalini yoga

yoga new

In my quest for a healthier lifestyle, I’ve been going back and forth about getting back in to yoga.  Here is how my past yoga experiences have worked.  I’m NOT a natural by any means, but I love the way it makes me feel.  I have scoliosis, so my moves are never exactly how they are suppose to be.  I’ve always gone to Montecito Yoga, while living in Santa Barbara, and I have always felt really comfortable with the classes there.  The teachers have always gone that extra mile to help me.

Long story short, I haven’t been in a long while, and I’m ready to get back into it, but in a little different realm.  I’m going to my first kundalini class this next week.  I’ve read a lot about the practice.  I love the meditation and breathing aspects of the practice. I’m learning how breathwork can really clear some different energies from your body.  I’m excited to elevate my spirit and to work on self-awareness.  My busy little mind, could use a little calmness and clarity sometimes, and I feel this practice would be beneficial.

I’m by no means an expertise in this area, matter of fact, I’m the furthest from that, and ok with it.  I do know,  that you have to try things that really interest you, or you will never know.  I’d love to hear if anyone has any experience with kundalini, and any insight you may want to share.

Hope everyone has a lovely weekend! Don’t forget Santa Barbara Earth Day is happening this weekend.  We’re excited to check  out all of the goodness!
