What are you up to this weekend?
I have a relaxing evening planned for tonight, yoga class (gotta work on those resolutions) and then binging on Orange Is The New Black before passing out. You’ve probably caught on by now that my Friday evening plans are usually pretty laid back. Tomorrow I’m driving up to Massachusetts with my cousin and his family to go to my Aunt Mo’s annual Father’s Day BBQ. Last time I was at one of these BBQs I think I was 14. And the last time I saw most of these relatives was 5 years ago. So it will be nice catching up. As for Sunday, I will be doing Solstice yoga in Times Square like I did last year. And as per usual there will be plenty of running sprinkled in this weekend.
Life in Motion Studio on the UWS has a great view down Broadway
Are you doing anything special for Father’s day? What about for summer solstice?
Unfortunately, I won’t be spending Sunday with my father. But I will definitely be giving him a phone call. Reminder: Call your dad this Sunday! I’ve seen a lot of great gift ideas floating around on the blogosphere. My family doesn’t exchange gifts for holidays like this – only Christmas and birthdays. Is that weird?
