Hello!

The weekend is coming to an end and it was so darn fun that I’m already missing it.

The weekend started with a lovely ‘repurposed left overs’ breakfast

Salmon hash close upI love using left overs in new dishes.  For this one I took my smoked salmon hash from the morning before and added an egg and scrambled it up.  At that point does it continue to be a hash? Or is it now reborn as a scramble?  Either way it was delicious.

After seeing a couple private clients I met up with Dave and we headed down to the court house to get the documents to change our names.  Look out “Paolone-Webb” here we come 🙂

After a few stops (currently only the IRS knows us as the Paolone-Webbs), we headed out to Salish lodge.

Champagna

We decided after the last couple of months we needed a treat, so we got the “Romance atop the falls” package and made sure to get a falls view.  It was the most relaxing evening we’ve had in a while. Bath & DaveSometimes life gets so crazy you forget to just chill and do nothing together, and after a short run to the falls and back that’s exactly what we did, ALL evening.

We exchanged gifts, but this year we kept it simple (the resort was the real gift)

Champagna Bath

We decided that when we own a house we will have a bathtub that opens up into our bedroom like this one did, it was GREAT!Champagna glassI was sad when our stay came to an end, but I was excited to get home and see our boys and for the rest of our valentines celebrations.

I signed us up for an antigravity/aerial yoga partner workshop.  I love that Dave is interested and willing to take yoga classes with me.  He’s taken vinyasa, nedra, hot, acro, and now antigravity/aerial yoga!  I always have fun with him, and I think he’s starting to see the benefits of adding core work/flexibility training to his workout regime.

The best way I can describe the class is a modified acro class, which is so great because we’ve tried acro before (without hammocks), and it’s super hard to get into any of the poses.  The hammock adds the support you need to really get into the poses and then hold them to build the strength.  The individual poses were pretty fun too.

It was also just fun to be cocooned in the hammock like a small child 😛Antigravity yogaAfter our yoga class we headed to the apple store to get me a new laptop for my business (OMG, I can open an application in less then a minute finally), and I spent the evening getting it ready.  Organizing satisfies something deep down inside of me, so I thoroughly enjoyed this!

This morning we woke up and continued our half marathon training with 5 miles at a 10:30 pace.  I’m trying to focus on getting the distance in right now, and then later I can try and speed things up a bit.  I’m just happy I was able to push out that extra mile.

And then there were none

Altogether an amazing valentines weekend.  It definitely reminded me of the quote “it’s always darkest before the dawn.”  I try to remember during those hard times that there are amazing times just around the corner, but it’s not always easy to do that.  I guess that’s why it’s good to document the good times for future reference.

Be well.
