best boyfriend ever

eli just surprised me with a one month pass to my old yoga studio.  i practically cried when he told me. in an attempt to cut costs over the past few months, i have stopped going to yoga.  i can definitely feel the void of not practicing regularly, especially in this particularly busy + stressful time.  and so... to the rescue, eli gifts me an entire month of unlimited yoga.  what a babe.  how lucky am i!?  i can't even believe it!  so excited. this is just what my mind + body need right now, more than ever...

summer in minneapolis

a completely different kind of heat
but watching this one celebrate turning one...

totally worth it

here's omar in his new bow tie reading his new book about a vegetarian dragon

the best exercise: non stop dancing every morning with omar to 'help me rhonda' on repeat

+ we painted our nails blue
and ate raspberries right off the bush
