Trying to live life with sandy toes and laughter

Saved by a giant purse…

DO not text and walk. Me being me again… on my way to physio last Monday, I’m just outside my building. Texting with one hand, holding an umbrella with the other and my super large purse dangling from my wrist. SIDE NOTE: up until my December Miami trip i didn’t carry a purse. Just a small card holder and keys in my pocket. I fell in love with this rather large but super cute bag and now I’ve gone from carrying the basics to having everything needed for any potential scenario I might encounter in my day. So back to story. I didn’t notice the step down. The back of my heal is on the top of the step and my ankle twists under it… then my knee. Blackberry goes flying 20 feet on the cement (for those of you who laugh at my ancient phone it was fine – didn’t even lose my text). So I’m in a skirt star fished on the wet sidewalk, umbrella inside out. Sprained my wrist, elbow, shoulder, knee and ankle. But get this, as I was falling the weight of my purse fell forward and instead of smashing my head on the cement I got a face full of my soft leather purse (in a charcoal shade with understated detailing). I LOVE that bag

Three days at a silent retreat might seem terrifying to some, but this introvert loved it. Here are a few reasons why. No tech, after taking a few pictures I surrendered my phone. The need to capture everything that caught my eye was replaced with a hunger to observe everything deeply. Practicing the ancient art of pen writing. I spent time with my thoughts, journaling and doodling them out. Without Google to ask, I spent more time thinking things through, exercising my problem solving skills. I perused the library and rekindled my love for books. I just wish I could find a copy of that book I didn’t finish. The tea station with every imaginable fresh herb 🌿 for bespoke creations. I’m not a foodie, but I do love when food is healthy and so well prepared that I’d choose it over a burger and fries. The evening campfires reminded me of home. And I burned some baggage 🧳 I’m ready for a longer silent stay if anyone has any local suggestions. #silentretreat #bali #retreat #digitaldetoxchallenge
One of the most memorable places I stayed in Bali was north @villageabovetheclouds I woke up, meditated, ate, and practiced yoga with a view of the countryside and rice fields. #ricefields #bali #baliindonesia #sunrise
Singapore you surprised me! My Australian visa didn’t come through in time so I made a last minute switch at the airport to @singapore Such a unique and beautiful country. Clean and safe streets, architecture mixed with nature, and lively cultural pockets around every corner. Highlights for me were little Turkey, India, and Chinatown, and the food! #singapore #travel #nature #gardensbythebay #sentosaisland #singaporesling #longbar
Here are few pictures from my last few days in Canggu. The first is after sunset @finnsbeachclub then @desaseni_avillageresort after a sunrise yoga flow class, the view from my patio, and the bike I’ve been trying to explore with but trying to stay out of Canggu rush hour has been tough #bali #canggu #canggubali #finnsbeachclub #sunset
Loving Gili Air the most of all the places I’ve been so far. Pics are of the boat ride over and then my early morning walk pre and post sunrise 🌅 #lovegili #sunrise #baliindonesia
Just finished my first Tantric Hatha yoga class, loved it. Early morning focus on bringing the breath into the naval/belly to help release negative energy 😁 #yoga #canggu #bali #2020tayfa
