spent my saturday night shopping for the new tranquil space arlington studio we're moving next weekend - body splash, trash cans, laundry baskets, hair ties, mops, mirrors, herbal tea. oodles of sundries necessary for welcOMing our beloved yogis.

some things of my list include:

The list focuses my mind and ensures that I watch for opportunities experience items on my list.

This is first time on your site, but went straight to bucket list somehow. Impressed that you want to get a MSW, LCSW; I have both of those, but would love to do something like what you're doing.
You're coming to Richmond next Saturday and hope to make it to your book signing at OM. Was asking one of instructors when your birthday was and she thought you just had it.
I definitely felt a libra vibe when reading your book(I'm a libra too). Hope to see you next Saturday!

You should also try getting some surfing for beginnersif you haven't tried. I know I included it in my bucket list.
