three new experiences

Summer seems to be flying by, I truly can't believe it is nearing the end of July!!
Only two and half more weeks until I am back at school, not boring with you my summer posts [sorry but when it comes to my internship and summer classes my posts can't get too interesting]

But some things I have experienced lately are:
I have been wanting to go here for so long and while meandering the street of Philadelphia I finally found one! 

I took my first train ever into Philly with my girls this past weekend, not quite like the Hogwarts train sad to say
I am a runner, so I know what it is to sweat, but when it is 104 degrees out, I cant even explain to you how drenched we got walking ten blocks to Rittenhouse Square from Suburban Station with backpacks, pillows, and sleeping bags. Tourists much?? : ) But it didn't matter because everything is a million times better when you are with the ones you love, your friends.

can life always be this sweet?

i mean really, what is everyone else doing...

as Sam put it, who cares. 

and really - when you are at a place like this
who does care?
there's simply no reason to have a care at all....


...until you come back to reality
& realize you have six hours of accounting homework to catch up on

oh well I can't complain too much ; )
i hope everyone had a beautiful weekend

by the way..
 has anyone ever heard of the planking/lying down game?!
and what in the world is the point of this bizarre craze?

sweet shavasana

"I run to think... I practice yoga to stop"

some may think yoga is boring,
while others may find it weird to stand in a position called tree pose for five breaths
but for me yoga is about letting everything I know go and just focusing on one thing
my breathe
yoga isn't easy
but your practice is truly what you make of it
and overtime I have found that you are able to learn a lot about yourself throughout practicing
but most importantly, you learn to respect your body and appreciate it for what it can do
not to mention yoga bodies aren't bad to look at
--indeed, yoga does a body good--

this week i ...

Ran through the lush green woods
 Won a game or two of pong
its all in the wrist
 Had a cookout with the best friends a girl could ask for
 Made a delicious smore with banana and dark chocolate
 - in my oven!
You must try it, the banana seals the deal.
 Lead a yoga class atop the mountain at sunset!
More pics to come : )
Refueled my body with an amazing outdoor bbq dinner - one of the many reasons why summer eating is my favorite!
[Mexican cheese was on the corn, which totally made it incredible, the Mexicans really know how to make cheese]
 Ran a 5k in 95 degree weather & got bit about twenty thousand times all over my body!
I love when people realize they can do things the didn't think they could! Because as cliche as it sounds
you never know until you try.
This week was Ginny's first time running an entire 5k! So proud of my girl! and she didn't stop once : )

& now i am off to the lovely Phildelphia for more adventure <3
what was your favorite part of the week!?!?
any fun weekend adventures to come?
