“We often take for granted the very things that most deserve our gratitude.”

- Cynthia Ozick

Can I just say, "I love the internet"?

Ya, sure there are *issues* with it (Hello haters and cyber-bullying) but we are all so super blessed with all we can be, do and have because of the *magic* of the internet.

Once upon a time it was difficult for me to buy running shoes because when I went to a store to buy them a few years after I'd bought the pair that now had holes in 'em, they no longer made that type of shoe . . . so I hadda start from square one -- find a new shoe that fit my feet well, the correct size, etc.  Made me a bit OCD.

Now when my running shoes have holes in 'em, I just go into my Amazon account, search my past orders for running shoes, hit "order again," and bam!  Done.  Without the side order of OCD.

The internet and my magical iPhone allow me to write books, inspiration card decks and blogs and run our 5 yoga studios from Nantucket all summer, so we get to spend precious family time with my kids' grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins who live in California during the year.  Best ever!  When we first opened Prana in 2002 we couldn't sneak away to ACK for even a weekend to see Philippe's family.

Nantucket rocks but there are some things you just can't get on the island.  No problem!  Food we miss from the mainland?  Check!  (online)  Homeschooling* stuff we need?  Check!  (online)  A swim shirt (that's reasonably priced) to replace the one Montana left God knows where?  Check!  (online)

And all with free shipping because of Amazon Prime.

*We no longer homeschool officially -- our kids go to public school in Newton, Massachusetts -- but we supplement their learning with Singapore math, etc.

Have the BEST DAY EVER! Namaste! Taylor plus 5
