For my birthday, Nick surprised me with a yoga retreat to the Kripalu Center, nestled in The Berkshires in Massachusetts. (!!) When I arrived I had time to squeeze in a yoga class before dinner and heading to my first cooking class (that Nick had also signed me up for) with Kripalu's infamous Executive Chef, Deb Morgan. Yes, I know, I have the most amazing boyfriend! Deb had us start by giving us all a clementine. She slowed us down to awaken our senses to the fruit before us, starting from the first smell, to the feel of the skin as we slowly dug our fingers into it, to the first time it touched our tongue. I knew then this was going to be such a memorable weekend. This, or course, was only the beginning.

Buon Appetito!

 Nick and I decided to undertake a Tortellini making adventure this past Sunday! Fact: I have a soft spot for home-made pasta -- there's nothing like it. Close your eyes and savor the moment with me. Mmmm.
We sautéed up up some Italian sausage to later combine with some fresh ricotta cheese for a delicious filling.

Mini Bouldering

Winter Bouldering from Neto Nomads on Vimeo.

Little bouldering over the past warm weekend on some small boulders, FA's are always fun though.
