The Royal Wedding

Okay, I admit it–I am obsessed with the royal wedding! Funny, I wasn’t even planning on watching it until a couple days ago, but I am so glad I did!! Coverage started here at 2am (WAY too early for this girl!) but the actual wedding started about 4am our time, so I got up about 3:30am. It was way too early for the breakfast scones I purchased, but I made myself a cup of English breakfast tea and settled in! Jason said he was going to get up and watch, but when the alarm went off, he rolled over and went back to sleep. The pugs and I watched from about 3:45-6:30, and it was so much fun!! It was so amazing to watch history¬† unfold with the rest of the world. I even got teary several times! My friend Ebeth was watching also, so we texted back and forth as we were watching. I ate my raspberry scone from Whole Foods (YUM!) after the wedding ceremony while waiting for the kiss!

The wedding was so amazingly beautiful, Kate’s dress was gorgeous and the words of the sermon were incredible. William and Kate seemed so genuine, and the ceremony was so “them.” They¬† looked so happy and so in love! I am so glad I got up for it–it was worth the early morning wake up call and something I will remember for a long time!!

Hope you all had a wonderful Easter!! We sure did. We attended a wonderful Good Friday service on Friday, saw an amazing Easter musical on the life of Jesus on Saturday, and had a cookout, colored eggs and attended church with friends on Sunday. We also had a lot of R & R, as we are both struggling to get over a nasty cold we have. It was a wonderful weekend!!

I am so thankful for Jesus Christ and the hope, forgiveness and peace I have through knowing him! Have a blessed week!

I have studied many times
The marble which was chiseled for me —
A boat with a furled sail at rest in a harbor.
In truth it pictures not my destination
But my life.
For love was offered me and I shrank from its disillusionment;
Sorrow knocked at my door, but I was afraid;
Ambition called to me, but I dreaded the chances.
Yet all the while I hungered for meaning in my life.
And now I know that we must lift the sail
And catch the winds of destiny
Wherever they drive the boat.
To put meaning in one’s life may end in madness,
But life without meaning is the torture
Of restlessness and vague desire —
It is a boat longing for the sea and yet afraid.

I am really struggling to come up with things to blog about these days!

One thing that I have started doing on a regular basis is going to yoga classes. I started out with yoga classes at the gym, and then stumbled upon an amazing yoga studio about 10 minutes from my house. I found it through Groupon! They had a five-class pass for sale on Groupon months ago, and I had been considering trying the studio so couldn’t pass it up. I have been hooked ever since! During the month of April, the studio has issued a challenge–if you attend 13 different classes with 13 different instructors, you get a free five-class pass! It has been a challenge doing so with a full-time job, but I am almost there, and it has been amazing!

I can’t exactly explain it, but yoga has really changed my life. I am a much happier, more relaxed, less stressed person. Sure, I still have moments, but I really feel like those moments are far less than they used to be. Yoga is my therapy. If you haven’t ever done yoga, try it!! It is amazing.
