Sharing Is Caring

Don't you just love getting things in the mail? While email is super efficient and speedy, its just so nice to get a sealed, stamped package or letter these days. I got back from a fun but long day wandering around Boston to textbooks and Brendan Brazier's book "Thrive"!!! The lovely people at Sequal Naturals sent this to me because I was a Healthy Living Summit Attendee, along with Vega's new Smoothie Infusions. I can not wait to read this! He's basically my hero-a vegan ironman triathlete! I put the Smoothie Infusion in smoothie to take to work for lunch, and did a little taste-test and its quite good! It adds 14g of protein and 6 g of fiber, all from organic natural whole food sources. I love Vega's protein mixes, except for the berry flavor-i'm not down with that taste. They are also coming out with a line of Sports Drink mixes, which I can not wait for!!! Maybe I'll have someone from Canada sneak it over the border....

I also have the best friends in the world. My marathon BFF Priyanka left last week to go home/to Mexico and before she left she gave me these goodies:
Wasn't that sweet of her??? She obviously knows all my favorite things, and I don't know how I'm going to run 15 miles this weekend without her!

In this gift-tastic post I want to mention that Special K Treatment had the best idea In this Post.
She's basically creating a sharing circle-you send something your digging to someone, and you'll get a little surprise in the mail. Of course I said I wanted to join! You should to!

Random gifts are so great. and Giving them is as great as recieving them.I think its time for me to go send a few gifts, since I have been the lucky recipient lately!

I leave you with this sign I saw at the Farmers Market Yesterday. Something I may need to be reminded of:

Healthy is Life outside Your Inbox

You are so wise, my dear! Healthy IS Life outside your inbox. So funny, I just took a picture of one of those Healthy signs that are around Boston, too. BTW, I am adding you to my blogroll, too!

Random gifts are my favorite. I mean, birthdays and the holidays you KNOW it's coming, but random gifts are so sporadic and exciting. I wish school weren't starting so I could sit and read it!!

I love that sign! I agree, getting real mail is the best. I've heard great things about that book, but haven't read it yet myself.
