jewel tones and cartwheels
These photos were taken at my best friend Desiree's new house. She hosted a family housewarming & birthday party for her sister. Her family is from New York so they are naturally gregarious & boisterous & her house echoes so it was pretty loud inside. It actually kind of sounded like New York in the abode. Outside the house, Desi's niece was doing back flips & one handed cartwheels all over the yard, and Desi's sister's puppy, Max, was just as nimble. Did you see the height he can get? I am so inspired by Desi's gymnast niece. She once led me in one of her workouts and I tell you, it was one of the hardest work outs I've ever endured. I am pretty flexible, but I really wish I could contort my body more. There was a gal in yoga class yesterday that was so flexible, I nearly tore some ligaments competing with her. Of course, competition is frowned upon in yoga, but she didn’t know that I was competing with her, and I can’t help myself. I hope one day I can do a handstand on a whim, and when I do, I’ll be sure to show you.
