dear sweet new yoga mat,
i promise to never forget the little jump-twirl i did when i came home tonight and saw you bundled up on my living room floor. you fit perfectly in my arms. your new mat smell should be bottled in a candle. and i don’t know your father, but i’m sure you look just like him.
please be good to me. it’s only been five months since adopting a fairly squiggly yoga practice, but you cost more than two weeks of my food budget. and i really like food.
let’s make this a mutually beneficial relationship, shall we? .

I spent so long after coming back from Costa Rica wanting to buy a second block so that I could practice this heart opener and I finally got around to doing so so I’m super happy about that
