So Much To Do, So Little Time

Absolutely can not at all believe that I have already been living in this city for almost four weeks. The time has completely flown by and I've had such an amazing time here. Each day is characterized by a new experience, adventure or growth in knowledge, and I have even been lucky to experience some of it with my loved ones. My mom and little brother (I say little but he is bigger than me these days) came to visit for St. Patrick's Day. My cousin was also here that weekend, my second cousin and great aunt came to town the next weekend and I was fortunate enough to spend time with all of them.

In the last 3 weeks, I have been extremely busy. Saw Wicked - which was absolutely amazing!! (I was even teary eyed a few times throughout the show). Went for a bike ride through Central Park, have been to the amazing Equinox gym nearly nightly (yoga, zumba, cross-training etc), spent quite a bit of time in Brooklyn, and enjoyed the beautiful 70 degree weather along the pier outside of my office building at the south street seaport for multiple days.

I've been to countless fun bars including, but not limited to, Wilfie and Nell in the West Village - where I met a bunch of new girl friends, The Ainsworth in midtown, and The Standard in the Meatpacking District - the view was stunning at180 degrees of downtown, midtown and Hoboken.  Even got to go to an outdoor BBQ complete with a fire pit and amazing food at a friend's private back patio area. 

I literally feel like the luckiest lady in the world. The only way I could be happier is if my friends and family in Houston were here with me-- where are we on this teleportation technology already!?

Loving life every day though - forever and always.

Himachal Pradesh, India: The Land of the Gods

Chandratal, Lake of the Moon I don't have the adequate words to describe the beauty and wonders of the Indian Himalayas and the Himachal Pradesh in a meaningful or comprehensible way. The diverse and remarkable landscape, scenery, culture, food, people and experience are beyond measure. What at first glimpse seems like complete disarray reveals itself as organized chaos - much more organized than a westerner might expect. I must admit that I, initially, had slight reservations about the trip in monsoon season; there is a great likelihood of landslides and floods on the perilous roads after all. I like to think that we were blessed with the beautiful unimpeded journey that we had. Blessed not only because we held positive thoughts, but also because it was due, dammit. After the loss of three close and precious souls in only four months, it was time for good things. Jamaica's Campsite at Chandratal with Rishi & Raju After reading countless travel experiences

I'm a Mom!

I had always known that when the time came I would want a natural birth without an epidural. So last October when I found out that I was pregnant I knew I had to do my research to find the right place to give birth. With the business of birth being so huge, it is really our duty to be our own advocates and research to understand the implications of the socially accepted birth practices in this country (USA). For me, a natural and unmedicated birth was of utmost importance but birthing centers are not covered by my insurance so I chose to deliver at a hospital in Houston that has a midwifery division and I am so happy with my choice! Life is a bit different these days.  I was just thinking about how my brain has been on sabbatical for what seems like an eternity - throughout the entirety of my first pregnancy and now the past couple of months. I am 4 months post-partum and am just now beginning to re-access the majority of my vocabulary. What better time than now to write out my birth

I completed my second yoga teacher training program and backpacked across the Himalayas of Northern India where I learned more about m
