Daily Gratitude












Thanksgiving is upon us and it is that time of year where we are bombarded with gift ideas, sales, family obligations, holiday parties, and lots of tasty but unhealthy food. There is a lot to be grateful for, but it can come at us so quickly that it is hard to keep track of what we are truly grateful for.

Before you sit down for your Thanksgiving dinner start a daily ritual that will take you through the holiday season to the new year. The ritual of writing in a gratitude journal.


Live Light Practice:

Each morning write 5 different things you are grateful for, and be as detailed as you can be. Keep the journal with you and reference it when you need a reminder of what it is that you are grateful for.



PS In the above picture you will see four women that I am grateful for having in my life and on the 3rd annual Yoga + Yarn Retreat. Thank you to Nancy, Carol, Joanne, and Dawn for sharing your time, joy, and knitting with me at Good Commons! I also want to thank those who were unable to join us and let you know you were in our hearts the entire trip.

Good Times







We’ve come back from another wonderful retreat at Good Commons, a place where you feel nothing but love, peace, warm, and joy for the entire time you are there. We enjoyed a full weekend of yoga, knitting, amazing meals, tasty wines, adorable cows, fantastic massages, and delightful company. Take a peak at some of the highlights from the weekend in the Yoga + Yarn album by clicking here.

Need a Yoga + Yarn fix before then? Join us Dec 4th 1:30-3:30pm for a yoga and knitting workshop. We will have a one hour vinyasa class that focuses on opening up the hips, shoulders, and strengthening the wrists for those over worked knitting hands. The hour class will be followed by knitting, snacks, and time with friends. Email info@lizalaird.com for details.
