my weekend out & about (with giraffes, artists, Mother Nature & fire fighters)

As an extrovert living in a city with plenty going on in every neighborhood within a 20-ish minute drive from my house, I knew Friday morning that it was going to be the perfect weekend to take advantage of all that Cleveland had to offer:

Kicking off the weekend Friday night post-yoga class by arriving fashionably late to Cleveland Zoological Society‘s Zippity Zoo Doo at Cleveland Metroparks Zoo. Crazy to think that Twilight at the Zoo will be here before we know it!

Lunch at the Beachland Ballroom and Tavern on Saturday included “pealafel” bites — made with peas and edamame. Fun to run into an old friend and to learn about some neat things that Beachland has in the works. Can’t wait to return!

Grand Opening of Praxis Fiber Workshop in Collinwood  — so so proud of my fellow yoga teacher training sister & Praxis Executive Director Jessica Pinsky on creating her dream via an amazing space, with a rockin’ team and beautiful artwork.

Tie dying t-shirts (for the first time in decades) at the grand opening. Wishing mine was the one with the cool circles — my finish product is in the bottom right. I like it!

Two separate outdoor adventures: hiking with my guys Saturday afternoon in the Cleveland Metroparks’ Brecksville Reservation, then a Sunday morning towpath bike ride just down the road in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park.

Holding down the Evolution Yoga vendor table at the Orange Village Fire Department Open House & Health and Wellness Fair on Sunday. Snuck away to get a healthy screening: great blood pressure, cholesterol and glucose levels. The University Hospitals staff member said to me, “whatever you’re doing, keep doing it!”

Cavs Witness

Pictured: My husband, ready to take care of business before last night’s Cavs game. After that win, I’m pretty sure he’s never going to take off that Witness shirt. (Not pictured: me crashing on our family room floor after another great weekend in Northeast Ohio.)
