Yes, a few Love Announcements, too! Here's a list of things I'd love to share with you...
We were interviewed on a podcast - Here's a really thorough interview with Bill Reel of Mormon Discussions. After I wrote my post on shifting away from Mormonism, Bill said he'd love to do an interview with us. He's a long time Mormon and typically dedicated to helping people stay within the faith, even during times of faith crisis. But now, he's having his own faith crisis. Danny and I spoke about our spiritual practices that could maybe inspire another facing a similar situation.
What I've been up to - At the last minute, I decided to sign up for Brene Brown's Living Brave Semester. I'll be joining a sister and a dear friend/retreat alumni. Are any of you doing it? I've only done Brene's first lesson, but I loved it. I also hope to have a semester like this from A Blog About Love before too long. :) My goal is to bring the retreat experience to you all online. [Note: Today is the last day to sign-up for Brene's semester.]
Movie Recommendation - The Big Short. Holy smokes. It's about the 2008 financial crisis. And it will make your blood chill. It was fascinating and extremely well done.
Favorite Recent Purchase - I decided to use glass for my daily drinking water. And I'm LOVING this beautiful glass water bottle from Takeya, of Japan. This thing sits next to me all day and it practically makes drinking water fun because the thing is so pretty and functional.
Winter Bucket List - I've got my eye on snow shoeing for next year. I've ALWAYS wanted to do this in Prospect Park after a big snow. You can also rent snow shoes at places like Mohonk Mountain House, in the Hudson Valley.
Official Announcement - Our next retreat in Ecuador will be APRIL 17-23! Registration will launch very soon! Stay tuned!!! We so hope you can come. Check flights to Quito.
Hope your weekend is cozy and renewing and full of some love,
P.S. Best wishes to Alt Summit! The conference is taking place this week in Utah. I have so loved going to those events and feel sad I won't be in the country this year. Sending all my love to fellow bloggers and the founders, Gabrielle Blair and Sara Urquhart. Hoping we can make it to a summer event.
