Hi friends! How’s the day going? Yesterday was a bit intense. P and I were both up with stomachaches -I think we overdid it on the Mexican food and sugar avalanche on Liv’s bday-  and the entire house woke up when it was still dark. I had a dentist appointment (always a party), an afternoon appointment, and since we were all totally off on sleep, Liv crashed out for a nap just as P was waking up from hers. Sometimes all ya can do is laugh. We sat on the patio and blew bubbles, while eating strawberry sorbet. Even though I was an exhausted zombie, it was nice. Fingers crossed that everything is a bit more *normal* today. 

It finally feels like getting into a routine around here, after what feels like nonstop vacation and traveling. Liv started a new school, and I’ve started to sub fitness classes. I’m teaching two TRX classes and a strength class this week!
