Happy Monday morning!!!  I love the feeling of a brand new week ahead, open with possibility and opportunity!  That, and Monday mornings are the only morning I don’t have to get up for a morning class. 😉

Last night we were hit with an INSANE storm in Madison.  I’ve heard of golf ball-sized hail, but I think last night was the first time I actually experienced it firsthand!  I was teaching yoga on the second floor where we have an entire wall that is made of floor-to-ceiling windows when the storm began.  Hail was flying at the windows and there was actually a few moments that I worried the glass might break!  Luckily I survived, but until midnight there was quite the show of hail, wind, pouring rain, and lightning.

Before heading to the studio last night, I made sweet potato rounds topped with cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger with MaraNatha organic raw almond butter for dipping.


With a glass of unsweetened almond milk.


Although the sweet potato round were fabulous, this was slightly depressing:


I obviously love my cinnamon. 😉

I was up at 6:15am this morning to get a dent on some reading I have to do for class. First thing first…

Breakfast:  Annie’s Bunnies topped with unsweetened almond milk with an organic banana on the side.


I was back to my usual Starbucks this morning.


It seriously makes me happy when they use the old logo on the cup holders.  I’m still protesting the ugly new logo.


The storm passed over last night, so it looks like we’re in for another fabulous Spring day!  With only 2 classes on Mondays, I’m ready to start my week out right! 🙂
