high·light (hī′līt′) n. 1. An area or a spot in a drawing, painting, or photograph that is strongly illuminated. 2. An especially significant or interesting detail or event.

My highlight in May (at least at this point in the month) has been spending time at the beach and in the ocean. Last weekend I was able to spend two long days at the beach, on a towel, in a bathing suit, with a picnic and play in the water with a boggie board. It was totally amazing and simple and easy. Boggie boarding made me nostalgic, where nearly every summer day as a kid was spent at the beach. It also made me realize that you should never give up (or forget about) old hobbies, activities, sports, and things you love. In the past year I have spent a good amount of time at the beach and in the water but bringing my boogie board out sure spiced things up! Plus yoga on the beach is way more fun, maybe just the hot sun and sound of crashing waves.

The highlight of this week has been, well first off, the Bay Area has had beautiful hot weather and I have nearly 3 hours of sunshine after work, basically I am a much happier camper. I discovered a new brand of coconut water INVO, as I have been trying to "love" coconut water for several years now and finally fell in love with a this new brand to me, the cute bottle also helped sell me (my sister just text me saying it is apparently sold at Costco).

For those of you who have made it this far you are awesome. I want to share a Ted Talk that I found interesting. If you have 20 extra minutes today or this evening or even next week listen to this Ted Talk about body language and how it shapes who you are. When I interviewed for the job I currently hold I stood outside in the parking lot before the interview for about 15 minutes with my hands in the air and feet spread wide, a confident pose. I did an excellent job in the interview and was offered the job. So much neat research is being done, it is amazing to get a glimpse of some of it and see how if could be incorporated into your life.

Papaya I had too much fun opening this evening..isn't it a beauty!
