Fall hasn't taken any time getting to Michigan this year, it started budging its way in before Labor Day and I find myself wearing huge cardigans to stay warm while I work.
Fall in Michigan usually doesn't last too long, not like Fall on the East Coast where you get weeks to ease into Fall fashion, pumpkin spice and veggie chili, in Michigan you have about 15 days and it will begin to snow.
Maybe I'm a bit over dramatic, I love Fall and don't look forward to snow.
In other news, I signed up for Terri Cole's Boundary Bootcamp, an 8 week program that helps you look at your boundary style and helps you create new habits along with healthy boundaries. I'm thrilled, Terri is my teacher Gabby Bernstein's teacher, I got to meet her at Soul Camp last month, she is incredibly intelligent and inspiring. You can check her out here: www.terricole.com
WHAT I'M READING
I also started reading the Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz. Thank you to the fab Julie Santiago for the reminder, I have been meaning to pick up this book for a few years now and keep forgetting.
See the link below to get your own copy of this must read.
Lately I've been cooking a lot! The Soul Camp Cookbook is amazing, you download it from their website for $25, the options are both veggie/vegan or meat eaters, so far they are going over really well with everyone in my house, including the kids, which is a miracle because they usually dislike anything that might be remotely good for you.
Soul Camp Cookbook
Changing seasons, it's a time to start some new rituals and renew some old. Tonight I will be taking a new exercise class, I'm normally a yoga girl with a little spinning on the side, but I feel like trying something new so I'm headed to Orangetheory. I'll keep you posted on how that works out.
I'm also going to be doing a clearing ritual this week, writing down things I need to clear out of my life to make way for new experiences and new energy. Write down your items on a small piece of paper, and when inspired release these items into a fire or burn safely. "I release these things that don't serve me to make space in my life for the positive experiences and energies fall has to bring"
Happy Fall Everyone! xo
