Introducing the names of these sweet rescued puppy girls!
Pip & Rue.
Can you tell which one is which?
We love having them here.
And they're doing so, so well. We haven't been able to find them permanent homes, so for now they're part of the family. Can you just see us flying back to the states with THREE crates of doggies? Oh my. It's a good possibility, since it's so hard to find doggie homes here. It should also be noted that puppy tongues are some of the cutest things on the planet earth.
A few more Love Announcements:
-The Myth of Finding Your Purpose by Kris Carr. So good.
-In case you feel pressure to be the perfect woman, hear what these elderly women have to say about that.
-We're loving the soundtrack from Inside Llewyn Davis (thanks to the recommendation from Laura Romer on the ABAL Facebook page!)
-Time to go make some pumpkin puree! This Paleo Pumpkin Pie from Elana's Pantry is in our future this weekend. :)
-One of our retreat guests totally recommends reading The Skimm, a daily recap of the news. She also had the most luscious, nurtured lips on the planet and swears by the balm called Dr. Lipp. Love you, Heidi Hansen!
I found these handmade boots by a husband and wife who have owned their shop for nearly 50 years. The husband makes the shoes in their home and the wife runs the shop and does the fittings. The quality is up there with the best I've ever seen, yet the cost is about 1/4 the price. So much more fun than buying online.
And I found a woman making chunky wool sweaters for $25. It takes her about two weeks. Such a find. Some days I feel like I should set up a little online shop for you all where I can share some of these finds.
On our end, there is a "super moon" lunar eclipse this weekend and it's supposed to be visible all over South America. Since it's cloudy, we might drive up to the mountains at 14,000 feet where we can see the moon above the clouds.
Love you all,
P.S. A couple of spots are still up for grabs for the October 11th Body+Soul Camp in Ecuador, men and women welcome! Register HERE. We are SO excited to meet all our guests. It's going to be an incredible group.
