my top ten in 2010.

i can't believe it's already new year's eve. it's been quite a year filled with so many sweet memories and milestones. here are my top ten from 2010 (in no particular order):

1 :: finishing my master's degree (while working full-time!)
2 :: deepening my yoga practice...in a hammock of all places!
3 :: launching My Yoga Story Project (share your yoga story!)
4 :: skiing at Stowe with my sister and experiencing a "freshie."
5 :: going to the Brimfield Antique Show for the first time.
6 :: loving a handmade Christmas (more to come on this.)
7 :: vacationing with my girlfriends in hyannis.
8 :: investing in an electra townie.
9 :: spending the holidays with my family (thanksgiving with my feet in the sand in florida and christmas with my snow boots on shoveling mounds of snow in connecticut)
10 :: and most of all, giving back to the organizations that i am most passionate about throughout the year (Off the Mat into the World, Yoga Reaches Out, Everybody Wins, Share Our Strength, Heifer International, and Semester at Sea).

a friend of mine shared some link love with me this week. it's a blog called pickles and the latest post features a DIY felted wool wreath that is f-a-b-u-l-o-u-s!

:: frock

this one-of-kind boutique located in chester, ct is on my list of places to visit this month. every garment that is sold at frock is made on site by independent designers, trish ginter and laura williams-larson. check out their blog and website and you will discover that they've redefined the meaning of "frock" into something totally hip and handmade for women of every shape and size.

:: soule mama's studio

one of my favorite blogs to read is soule mama. she and her family recently purchased a big 'ol farmhouse and her new studio space is just lovely. it's exactly the type of space that i long to have for myself one day. view more of her studio pics here.

:: 1,000 awesome things

yes, i'm going to say it...this blog and book are AWESOME! each and every post reminds me of how much i need to stay present in my life and enjoy each and every moment.

#380 really spoke to me...

hearing someone's heartbeat
while lying on the grass, lazing on the couch, or relaxing in some crumpled sheets, you sometimes just fall into the moment with someone you love. after the conversation dies down and the background noise fades away you smile silently and melt into an arms-and-legs embrace. gaze into their eyes, push your ears to their chest, and then shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.

just listen.

the barista at my favorite local coffee shop brought a huge smile to my face this afternoon when he surprised me with some latte art.
