Happy Sunday and Christmas Eve to YOU!
It is quite the ebony and ivory Christmas here in New Hampshire. Black ice and snow. Winter is flippin’ here.
And so is a week of my favorite reads! The gift that keeps on giving. 🙂
I thought this very fitting for the holiday season, and for the fact that I am trying to make a habit of daily meditation for the 57th time. Peace is a mindset. Peace is a choice.
Music of the Moment:
“In My Bed” – Amy Winehouse
I finally brought myself to watching her documentary, and how much of a loss her life was to the world. At least her soul and heart lives on through her music, and for that I am grateful.

Peanut Butter S’more Cookies – Zen & Spice
Does anyone know what states it’s legal to marry a cookie in? Asking for a friend.
That yoga teacher is my hero. Let’s all take a lesson from these folks, and be kind to one another and ourselves this new year, kay?
Reframing Disordered Thoughts and Beliefs – The Real life RD
You have a right to your thoughts, but have you ever thought to look at them from a new, non-judgemental perspective? Even if only one of these thoughts resonates with you, this post is worth it.
These New Tearless Onions Won’t Make You Cry – The Kitchn
Oh, food science and onion breeding. This is so beautiful it could almost make me (I had to) ..cry.
