Friday Round-Up: Good Vibes

Give out what you most want to come back

I mean, right? Isn’t that how we should approach life? Give out what you most want to come back?

Anyhow, Happy Friday! How was your week? Did you get fooled by any April Fool’s Day tricks? My kids tried to convince me that there was a cockroach in their room. Not very nice since I hate cockroaches.

Good Vibes. Good Vibes.

I’m trying to keep good vibes in mind. I haven’t run much since the NYC Half because my hip is still bothering me a bit. But, I did manage to run about 15 minutes outside yesterday. Hooray for running outside and hooray for running mostly pain-free. I’m back at physical therapy and I’m hoping that they’ll have this thing sorted out soon.

Good Vibes. Good Vibes.

Having a chance to catch up with friends also brings good vibes. I’ve had some planned and some serendipitous meet-ups this week. It reminds me how much I love and need that time to be with friends and to nourish my soul through conversation.


Here’s this week’s Friday Round-Up – some of the best posts that I’ve read this past week.


This post from Adrienne at The Mommy Mess is one of the best things that I read this week. OK, the post is technically from last week but that’s where I am with blog reading – perpetually behind. But Adrienne speaks so beautifully about mothers – being a mother, having a mother, what it means to be a mother. It’s beautiful.

On Letting Go

Re-reading this from Dani Shapiro, it seems like my post on transitions should be its companion piece. She touches on a lot of the latent anxiety that has filled my mind and body recently as well as how to find the answer to many of the questions that fills my head.


This is a video created by a local Boston photographer and director in tribute to his city and the people who live there, particularly in light of last year’s Boston Marathon and the upcoming race. It definitely captured the spirit of the city.

See You in the Line-Up, Kelly Slater

After 23 years, Kelly Slater announced this week that he’s leaving his partnership/sponsorship with Quiksilver to start his own clothing line. Quiksilver put together this video looking back on those years.

Yoga 101

OK, this is cheating a little but this is a guest post that I wrote for my friend Lindsay at The Lean Green Bean. It’s a bit of a beginner’s guide to yoga and offers 5 tips I wish someone had given me when I first started practicing yoga.

P.S. The next installment of Ask a Yogini will be posted on Monday. I received a bunch of great ideas and questions but please do let me know if you have a specific question about yoga and I’ll be sure to answer it!

How was your week?

    Happy Friday! Good vibes for sure. I’ve had a tough week and I’m ready to relax a little – after my scheduled hill repeats of course :-)
    Can’t wait to read the Mommy Mess. Thanks for all the link-ups!

    I am beyond flattered, Christine! Thank you so much for your kind words and sharing that post. I’m living in the “last week” of blog posts too!

    I read the first two posts and loved them. Now to read the next!
    I actually had a decent week after a terrible weekend/Monday. I’m really hoping this weekend will be great. Maybe some Farmer’s Market action, and getting the puppy used to our downtown. She will be pet a lot! And my mom is coming for two nights on Sunday so I’m planning on relaxing. A LOT.
