Another weekend at Shoshoni Yoga Ashram

I spent this past weekend at the Shoshoni Yoga Ashram. Just like last time, it was a great weekend with great people.

Although I didn’t take as many pictures this time, I did capture a few of the chickens and roosters. It turns out they are kind of scary when you get up close– I was glad there was a fence in between me and their beaks!

The weekend was full of great food once again, including Chalupa, Avocado Lime-Slaw, Tom Kha Soup, Mung Pancakes, Kitcheri, and lots of other fresh veggie dishes! And when we weren’t eating the delicious food we were drinking lots of tea!

I am so thankful to Sita, Indra, the people of Shoshoni, and the wonderful group of students that made this fun weekend possible! Until next time…

 

New York City Adventures

This past week I traveled from Denver to New York City.

I spent my first few days with a group of fellow Libby Hall- Arts Residential Academic Program students. Since the trip was art based, we went to the Guggenheim Museum, the Museum of Modern Art, and the Cooper Hewitt Smithsonian Design Museum. After exploring the Guggenheim, the LRAP girls took a stroll through Central Park– and the sun actually decided to join us.

On Sunday morning we went to a drag brunch at Lips- The Ultimate Drag Dining Experience. It was very entertaining thanks to the host of the show, Ginger Snapts, and our very own Frodo and Harry Potter (…you know who you are). We also took an awesome street art tour from Grafftours. Despite the cold temperatures, the tour was very interesting. I now have a new appreciation for street art after hearing everything our guide, Gabe, had to say.

After saying farewell to the Boulder crew, I spent my time in Brooklyn with Kayla. When we weren’t eating tacos or pizza, we were eating bagels. We also spent some quality time with Kali the Kitten! On our last full day we ventured over to SOHO on a mission to find Ilana’s Broad City Bralettes. We were successful– meaning we spent way too much money– but it was way worth it. #YasKween

Until next time, NYC.

This Weekend from College… Colorado Springs!

I spent this last weekend in Colorado Springs. The weekend was full of great people, great food, and great laughs.

 

I really do mean great food. Claire’s dad made a kickin’ carrot ginger soup for dinner, and a yummy sweet potato, arugula, poached egg breakfast. It was the perfect Veggie fix we were looking for.

Dave spent all day Saturday in the kitchen in order to prepare us an amazing dinner– homemade pasta, freshly baked rosemary bread, a vibrant pesto, and a whole slew of antipasto sides and treats.

We sat by the fire, worked on our knitting, shared stories and laughs, stacked blocks, and completed a little bit of our homework.

We concluded the weekend with a lovely hike through Red Rocks.

A huge Thank You to Claire, Ginny, Dave, and Claire’s parents for being so welcoming and fun! It was the perfect low key weekend getaway.
