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 donโ€™t have to get up for a morning class. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Last night we were hit with an INSANE storm in Madison.  Iโ€™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. ๐Ÿ˜‰

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

Breakfast:  Annieโ€™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.  Iโ€™m still protesting the ugly new logo.


The storm passed over last night, so it looks like weโ€™re in for another fabulous Spring day!  With only 2 classes on Mondays, Iโ€™m ready to start my week out right! ๐Ÿ™‚
