Stretching (& Friday Links)

Somehow this week turned out to be full of stretches—the good kind. I felt like I was back in school, trying new things every day. On Monday, I went to my third ceramics class and brought home my first fired object. On Tuesday, I drove up to the cabin and went skiing by myself. On Thursday, I tried my first Barre class—which also happened to be my first exercise class of any kind since Skyler was born. And today I got literally stretched at a Spa-Day-Birthday-Party. Of course, it all took a small village—comprised of grandparents, teachers, Aron, afterschool playgroup, and our babysitter—and I appreciated all of it!

Has anyone done a Barre class before? Everywhere hurt the next morning, but I’m excited to go back tomorrow.  It kind of reminded me of the Tracey Anderson routine I watched on Oprah so many years ago! (Does anyone else remember this?) If I keep doing it, will I have arms like Gwyneth? Please tell me yes.

Any fun plans for the weekend? Here are some links of note if a little internet browsing is in the cards…
