Sideways

I wrote a story in the book of life today!

Shut the fuck up!

This is how it works
You're young until you're not
You love until you don't
You try until you can't
You laugh until you cry
You cry until you laugh
And everyone must breathe
Until their dying breath

No, this is how it works
You peer inside yourself
You take the things you like
And try to love the things you took
And then you take that love you made
And stick it into some
Someone else's heart
Pumping someone else's blood
And walking arm in arm
You hope it don't get harmed
But even if it does
You'll just do it all again

Adventure Date Day

We got rained on a few times but it was awesome. Brunch at Bongo, bikes, whiskey, beach, fireworks - fucking awesome day


I've got such a crush.

I am so in love with this openly spontaneous man who just fell into my lap via Tinder. I still can't get over I am dating someone from a hookup app. Maybe I'm over it but just really grateful.

I love being able to influence such a wonderful spirit. He rode his bike to work for the first time in a while. Before he did the naked bike ride with me he hadn't ridden since his accident in 2009. He was hit by a cab and broke his poor, handsome jaw. I'm surprised he wasn't more scared to hop back on. Then again, he isn't a scaredy cat like I am. Yesterday I realized these fears in me run in my family because my brother and his friend came over last night and we were working on handstands. My brother was afraid and didn't even want to attempt one at all. I didn't push him.

I ended up stretching Aaron out and giving him a nice little core strengthening workout. We both straddled on the floor and stretched it out. It was such a beautiful, little thing that I didn't feel judged for. Every tweak I suggested, he did with no questions asked. We eventually were lying on my hardwood floors in the dark and chatting the night away.

I sent him a text of an acro yoga move and asked if we could attempt it.

I asked him if he wanted to do a Lush face mask with me.

I asked if he would ride the ferris wheel with me.

I asked if he wanted to take a dance class.

I asked if he wanted to have a city adventure.

Generally, whatever I ask him, he will say yes.

It's such a simple and beautiful thing.

Triumphs and Tribulations

Lots of things going on as summer is picking up...or I am packing my schedule with summer. I've been super broke since my student loans kicked in. Ouch...although it has greatly influenced me to ride my bicycle to and from work, save a bunch of money as well as keeping me at home. In addition, my muffler...system fell off my car (completely) a few weeks ago and I have to get that shit welded back on before I take my emissions. Having this dang car is such a hassle but, alas, I won't be complaining when it's negative 15 out in 6 months.

World Naked Bike Ride was incredibly liberating. Something about peeling off your clothes like layers in your life does hold true. After baring my tush in undies and heart covered nips, nothing is that serious anymore after being nearly  naked riding a bike. Talk about fear and vulnerability addressed! Aaron eventually joined me at the halfway point in his boxer briefs bearing the gift of whiskey! That's my man! Totally unsure how the universe aligned us at the perfect time for him to spot me in a crowd of nearly 2,000 naked riders. I asked how he recognized me and he says, "You were the only one wearing a beanie...and one you made, nonetheless."

Aaron and I went to his producer's wedding last Friday night and I was so moved with how much love this could had supporting them. It was a small wedding in the West Loop across from the yoga studio. Simply beautiful and lots of fun. The music was perfect, my dancing dates were wonderful and for the first time in my life, I let go and took my shoes off that were giving me a major pain. Aaron and I did the photobooth a bunch and have a crush on his boss' wife.

Sara and I are collaborating on improving her yoga mat bag pattern. A little mix of beautiful open crochet stitches and tougher functionality for the strap and drawstring is totally us manifested in a bag, haha! In return for these inspirations, we are also trading skills...handstand skills for hooping skills. It's definitely interesting and loads of fun trying out new activities!

Do things that scare you...

That's been my agenda lately.

World naked bike ride chicago for less gas and more ass + gender equality.

I got onto an earlier flight...standby...to San Francisco. It's 8:30 am and Alex won't be getting in until probably past 1 am...I don't know any hotel information at all and have a duffle and a huge tote with me. A little nervous but ready to wander with my belongings if need be...here we go!

Do the things that make you nervous!

My Key

I told Aaron I made a copy of my keys for him and his wonderful response was:

"Aw, now I can sneak in and love on you whenever? That is the best news I have ever heard. I love you. You make me the happiest man, period."

I know this is new (people won't let me forget) and I'm certainly not the girl to jump to conclusions but how is this person such a great balance and match for me right now? I don't get it and am trying not to understand the logic of this love for me. I hear it's too soon to give keys and use the word "love" but I am not like these people who are trying to rain on my parade. I am just enough protective of myself as I am a freely loving person. I am loving everyone the same way these days and it's so light and wonderful. I'm living without expectations, drama and without taking issues personally.

So, slowly I'm loving and trusting more openly and letting go of the things that no longer serve me.


Cheers to Aaron having a key soon.

The other day I texted Aaron, "Hey, baby, can I throw an eMac in the recycling?" He giggled. Yesterday I carried it to the alley and asked if he would judge me for busting this.

"Do your thing baby, use your strong hands."

I am so in love with the man who wants to take me on adventures, share his knowledge and experiences and hold my hand when I get too scared to look at what will come next.
