Snow day

Today was a snow day. 
 It was reading in front of the fireplace with a steaming mug of coffee.  It was cozy slippers and yoga pants, topped off with a sock bun and a little mascara for good measure.  It was hanging with my sister, sharing laughs and tears and leftover chili.  It was attempting yoga, while chuckling about Sir Rodney Yee's word choices...."move your buttock flesh downward as you breeeathe...".   It was burning three bags of popcorn only to discover that they had expired, uh, SEVEN years ago.   It was Disney movies and soft blankets, afternoon naps and texts that made me smile.  
Today was unexpected, blissfully slow, and beautiful.  

Today was a gift and I am so thankful for it.

What a fun time! Nathan read your post to me and we both laughed out loud at the things Rodney would say. You are a colorful writer, Lily.

Thanks for the encouragement friend!! You are a very colorful (and inspiring) writer yourself! And oh my word- I am totally going to do a post on yoga someday... that was only one of MANY awesome things that Mr. Yee said. (...."Soften your eyes. Drop your groins. Exhale."... "lift your chest through the root of your sacrem"...)
Love you!
