these hips are good for something

It’s a regular six-ring circus around here!

Just kidding. Even though the Omsh’s are loads of fun—they are loud and crazy and loving like nobody’s business—I’m finding real peace out here. I think I needed to just stop and listen and figure out where my life was going. I’m almost ready to go back, but not quite. I thought staying for ten days was way too long. I thought for sure they would be sick of me by day three. But now that my trip is winding up, I don’t think ten days is enough.

The Brendarita

it's called a Brendarita! I've invented a new drink

I’ve invented a new drink. I’m sure it’s not really anything new but it’s newish to me and I love it. If you want to have me over for cocktail hour this is what you should serve me.

Muddle some fresh strawberries in a glass. Drop in a few ice cubes. Dump in a shot and a half of the best tequila. Fill with fresh squeezed grapefruit juice and serve! I think it’s pretty good!
