Victory in Jesus and Vespas



Dear Blog,

I'm going to be honest. I just wrote a reaaaaallllyyyyyy long post about my last day at the magazine and all of my likes, dislikes and grievances. I put it up for about 10 minutes (long enough to put cupcake batter in the cupcake pan and stick 'em in the oven) and then asked Aaron what he thought and we agreed I needed to take it down. Long siiiiigh. Part of me wants EVERYONE to know about my experience(s) there but my blog might not be the best forum to get it all out. So, that chapter of my life is closed and I feel very healthy and happy about it. I am an honest, honest believer of everything happening for a reason both good and bad. So, I'll break it down for ya; I worked for the magazine, I met my work bff Jaimi, she introduced me to yoga, I started going and became great friends with the head instructor and owners, and they asked me to manage their ever growing studio and help them open their second location. So, DUH, tomorrow I'm starting a new job! I'm stoked about tomorrow and I know this is going a great experience and the beginning of a frizzy fresh feroshe start to the new year.

Another awesome thing that happened today, my fantastic husband and I bought a brand spankin' new Vespa!! So excited, so excited, so excited. Love it, love it, love it. We are doing our part to reduce our footprint on Mother Earth while looking totally sweet. I plan on tootin' my scooter to and fro the yoga studio. Check out the vid from you tube.

Also, go on over to Uncle Urb's site to hear his explanation of the joy of being a Vespa owner.

P.S. A big shout out to former co workers and fellow blog readers Bailie and Nini! I love you peeps and presidents club 4 life boyeeeeee!!

Amen and amen,
Alison
