Three cheers to spontaneity!

My husband is far from perfect. 
He doesn't help nearly enough in the house for my liking, he is set in his ways, and he collects animals like other people stamps (which is awesome when it comes to dogs and cats, but not so much when it comes to chickens).

The ultimate Gilmore girls gift guide

It's no secret that I'm a huge Gilmore girls-fan. It's my number one feel-good show, and I watch it whenever I need a break from the world and want to escape reality for a while. The other day I was idly browsing through the internet (as one does), and I came across this mug
Smelling snow is Lorelai's thing (but I smell it too, sometimes, don't you?), and not only is the mug gorgeous and Christmas-sy and whimsical, it also inspired me to go on the hunt for more Gilmore girls-merchandise, and the internet did not disappoint. Who knew there are so many great Gilmore gifts out there? 
I spent a fun hour putting together some of my favourites for yourself or another GG-fan in your life:

Little joys

I walked Lily through town yesterday, admiring the Christmas decorations that are popping up everywhere now. Even though I'm not the biggest Christmas fan, I love the sparkly lights, Christmas trees, and all the decorations.
Suddenly, a deer appeared. In the middle of town. It slowly and majestically crossed the road - right at the crosswalk! It was followed by another deer, and another, and another - seven deer in total. Cars had to stop and wait for the deer to cross the road on the crosswalk, and people pointed and laughed. I laughed out loud too when I saw it - it was just too funny! When the last one had safely crossed the road the cars continued on their merry ways, but I watched the deer leisurely sauntering away until the last white tail had disappeared.

A day in the life of my depression

I drive up to the gate, put the car in park, and get out. 
Inadvertently, my gaze is drawn to that house. My heart starts beating faster, and I feel my palms getting wet. 
I quickly look away and busy myself opening the gate. "Stay calm," I mutter under my breath. 
"Breathe."I take a cleansing yogic breath that doesn't do a thing to calm me down, climb back into the car, drive through, stop, get out and close the gate.

The goats are greeting me as they always do, and my panic rises. Are they louder than usual? They're too loud, aren't they? People will hear! Omg, what am I gonna do? What if they will complain again?
I drive down the driveway in a panic. Rich is there, watering the horses, and I jump out of the car and race up to him, shouting, "I can't do this! We have to sell the goats! It's too much, I can't do this anymore!"
Without waiting for  reply I turn around, run into the house, collapse onto my bed and promptly burst into tears.

Start your own home yoga practice (+ a few of my fave videos)

Once in a while I get asked how the heck to get started with yoga. I hear ya: it's a vast and confusing world out there in yogaland, and all the beautiful bendy photos on Instagram can be seriously intimidating.
I have a few really easy tricks how you can get started "on your yoga journey" as we yogis like to call it, or how to bend and stretch a bit every day in normal-people-speak.

Darkness is coming ...

Haha, I came across this video and thought I'd share it:
