Today’s Observations
I am way too happy.  Like giddy kind of happy.  Like if-I-were-you-I’d-be-suspicious kind of happy.  I don’t know what is going on with this food I am eating, but I have been giggling all day.  I suppose its not a bad problem to have – giggling in the grocery store line, giggling while driving when noone is watching, giggling while sitting in the middle seat on the airplane.  It’s just a little embarrassing at times, but it is also contageous.   The truth is, I have a lot to be giddy about…
I’m getting more limber on my yoga mat.
I have a new found energy that automatically wakes me up before 5:30 AM for my morning routine.
I’m spending the next 4 days with my family, and my mom and I always crack each other up.
I have amazing friends.
I have incredible clients.
I have a new skin suit.
I have a scooter that gives me a big ol’ grin every time I ride it.
I live and work in a gorgeous place that, for many, is only a destination.
I have the power of the Universe behind me that says YES to my dreams.
I have just experienced one of the most beautiful days I have ever seen.

So I have a lot to giggle about… a lot to be grateful for.  Perhaps I will think of this as, giggling with gratitude.  Ya… that’s it, giggling with gratitude.  I like that.  LOL

Today’s New Recipe – Watermelon, Heirloom Tomatoes, Cucumber and Herb Salad
This salad has all the flavors I love – that savory-sweet combination of Watermelon, cilantro, cucumbers, mint, jalapeno.  So for me it was a complete winner and one that will undoubtedly become part of my regular weekly menu.  This recipe comes from Living Raw Food, and I made 1/4 of the recipe for just lil’ ol’ me.
