Sometimes

Sometimes you need a long, cold, cold, cold run with a friend. Layers, ear warmers, and thumb holes are encouraged

Sometimes you need to an assortment of sashimi at a hole in the wall Japanese restaurant. Sitting at the counter of Izakaya Seki watching the chefs makes it all the better

Sometimes you need a little surprise to end your day. This is my best Birchbox yet–hopefully it’s a good omen for 2013

Sometimes you need a huge crockpot fail to make you apprciate a delicious tomato soup. My decision to carve and roast our huge pumpkin from Halloween did not go as planned. I now have a substanital quantity of bland, discolored pumpkin. Any takers? Apparently Halloween pumpkins are not the ones you cook with–they don’t have the right sugar makeup. Out of frustration I whipped up tomato soup, the perfect complement to a frigid DC night

Sometimes you need a morning yoga class to prepare you for the day. Fifteen other people on their mats, awakening their bodies, moving in unison, cultivating their breath, and setting distinct, poignant intentions.

Sometimes you need  to be enveloped by melodic stories and riveting articulation on a Saturday night. Preferably at a bookstore like this with a two foot proximity to pie and wine

Sometimes you need to punish the boyfriend. Or help him pick out shoes at a running store.

  1. I love the sparkly nail polish! 🙂 And I’m glad you were able to take advantage of the amazing weather this weekend – it’s supposed to get cold again this week, so it’s awesome that you were able to get some time outside while the gettin’ was good!
