Endless organization





Erik and I have spent the majority of the last two weekends cleaning and organizing the apartment. We've dropped off countless bags to the Salvation Army and I even managed to sell two dresses at Beacon's Closet. We're making plans for our little nursery and have carefully measured out the furniture that might fit. We're going to give away or try and sell our wood desk and the green couch. I'll really miss this little couch after nine years together, but there's just no room. Organizing can really turn into an endless job! I start on one drawer and it leads me to the filing cabinet, the kitchen, and many places in between. Thankfully, I don't mind spending hours doing this.

Something I've also tried the past two weekends is prenatal yoga. I had never taken yoga before and always preferred the challenge of aerobics. Since all of the classes at my gym spend so much time working on your abs (the opposite of where I am going), I'd thought I'd give it a try. So far I am really enjoying how aware you become of your body and your breathing, how it allows you to relax while building strength, and how I can meet other pregnant women and share stories. At the first class there were two other women, 5 and 6 months along. I hope to keep this up at least a few times a month.

Here are a few pictures from a fun girls' day out to the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens with Sara, Josephine and Jessica. I think it was the first time in months I've worn my sunglasses!
