i can't sleep

bummer, look at this ungodly hour. i'm usually in the midst of my best sleep about now. after the long drive home monday night, i had a hard time falling asleep and tonight was no exception, only to awake at 5am unable to return to sleep. yuck, i hope this isn't a pattern as sleeping is one of my favorite things to do. maybe i had too much green tea. my body is lamely sensitive and i did have 1.5 cups yesterday. goodness, i hope it isn't that lame!

excited to share that our first edition of hip tranquil times will be coming out today. i hope you love it and look forward to your feedback.

heading to whister, british columbia this weekend to celebrate my 3-year anniversary with beau (and pug in tow). so excited about curling up in front of a fire and watching snow fall while reading a good book (lord knows i have a few of those). i lived in summit county, colorado for a year after college and am like a kid in a candy store about returning to the mountains for the weekend. no plans to ski or snowboard like the old days as it is hard enough to warm up after a 10-minute walk home in the cold, much less in all that gear on the mountains. think i'll stick to snowshoeing or a lovely sleigh ride.

i wanted to share a suggestion from a friend that i'm just delighted about. since one of my goals is to read 2 books per month (already actually finished 3 so i'm on a streak), she encouraged me to write out 100 books i wanted to read so that i'd have a record and feel that great sense of accomplishment that comes from crossing things off. try it. let me know what books you add.

hope you're sleeping like a baby. zzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Hi Kimberly! I couldn't sleep last night either! Maybe it was an east-coast phenomenon? Anyway, I have a great book recommendation for all the hip tranquil chicks out there.

The Red Book by Sera Beak ( -a deliciously unorthodox approach to igniting your divine spark. I recommend this for all spiritual cowgirls!

WEIRD - I woke up very early this morning, too, which I never do. Very, very weird.

I put myself on a challenge in November to read 100 books in a year, and so far Im up to 10. I'm pushing for up to 10 books a month. Love this site btw, I got through Julia @ All About The Pretty, who I think is one of your students! :)

I also have the goal of reading a couple books per month. I recently finished The Diamond Cutter (at your recommendation, thanks!) - it was so good I plan to read it once every year!

I also like history so I'm currently reading "The Unknown American Revolution." Next is "The Judgement of Paris" (how French impressionism came about). I find that in addition to self-help books, reading about history and its visionaries is a great way to stay inspired.
