PM/AM Ritual

A few of us gals have a started a petit, informal morning ritual group called Abundant A.M.'s (cute name, huh?), and one gal mentioned how her morning routine is very much tied to her night before. So true, right? I've touched on this before, about how I was doing a fairly good job of creating an evening ritual despite my inability to create a morning one. I need to stick to that because if my evening is out of whack, my morning is guaranteed to be as well.

I've decided that the best way for moi to create a morning ritual that I'll stick to is to add one petit thing every week or so. There's less pressure that way, you know? It's like SARK's micromovements. I'm undecided as to what my petit thing will be for this week. 10 minutes morning pages/journaling? A few sun salutations? Taking Lola for a walk? Any suggestions?

Speaking of Lola, how cute is she? I just love that she uses a pillow for her head. Comme une personne!



Oh and as for 500 Days of Summer, it was a great flick! I have to admit that my expectations were insanely high, and I felt like I was waiting for a big something throughout the whole movie (naturally that big something never happened), BUT the movie was still good. Good and realistic and oui, un peu triste. And yes, Zooey Deschanel is ADORABLE!!

Perhaps a short walk with Lola in the morning just for the quiet bonding with her..or maybe a few minutes doing some sun salutations..I am looking forward to seeing 500 Days- it sounds completely adorable!

Adding one new item weekly/biweekly is such a great idea. I think I may just try it this week.

Lola is so adorable. What kind of dog is she?

Lola is a maltese-poodle mix (aka maltipoo), but she's bigger than most - around 15 lbs! She looks more like a mini goldendoodle to moi. ;-)

Have you thought about practicing some "doga"? Lola seems like just that type of girl!

Lola is adorable, I'm sure time with her would brighten up any morning. I like to drink a cup of coffee or tea while I walk my pup in the morning :)
