I feel like I keep talking about how glad I am that fall is here and that things are finally slowing down, but the reality is that I’ve still been really busy. Maybe I thought if I talked about it enough, it would actually happen?

Like I mentioned on Monday, there’s finally a light at the end of the tunnel! Hooray for productivity.

Amidst all this craziness and stress, finding peace is key to keeping my sanity. Yoga is a big part of that for me and last weekend I traded out my typical Core Power Yoga class for a open air class at the Vertigo Sky Lounge, aka the rooftop at the Dana Hotel through Gilt City. It was so nice to be outside with the sun shining on my face and the wind gently blowing around me. The city views were spectacular and made it easy to forget about my worries. After the class they had a complimentary mimosa, green juice, back rubs and healthy snacks that set my Saturday on the right track!

The other part of keeping my sanity, is keeping my house feeling cozy, inspired and tidy. The latter being the toughest one for me! Back in the day I filled my walls with a bunch of inexpensive prints just to have something on the walls and now I’m slowly switching out old pieces with ones that have meaning and bring me joy. The most recent addition to our home is this gorgeous breakfast print from my talented friend Regan Baroni. Doesn’t it make you hungry? It reminds me to slow down and enjoy life’s little moments, like breakfast! And I love that.

Sidenote, Regan is seriously talented! Her prints would make for gorgeous additions to a kitchen or dining room. Her travel prints are also so fun! I’m thinking about grabbing two for over our side tables… I just can’t decide which ones.

It’s interesting to see what kind of things bring you peace and happiness, but once you nail them down, they can make life so much better. Do you have any things in your home that make you happy or activities that calm you down?
