Why? Weekends!

It was a weekend filled with eating, shopping, and yoga, which is pretty perfect, if you ask me! On Friday, Matthew, Jeffrey, and I met up with Matthew’s dad for a traditional Lenten fish fry at St. John Vianney church.

Fish fries are everywhere in Cleveland this time of year, but the church ones, with homemade food and friendly little old ladies tend to be my favorite. We enjoyed breaded fish, mac ‘n cheese, pierogi, and more.

From there, I headed to a special Balance & Brews event at Athleta. Aside from a great one-hour practice, we also got a chance to save 25% off on all the merchandise in the store.


As is only appropriate for our weather lately, I bought both a puffer coat and a sundress. Balance, indeed.

On Saturday, we took Jeffrey to another show as part of the Children’s Theater Series at Playhouse Square. We saw Dino-Light, a magical and heartwarming tale presented by Lightwire Theater.


I loved how Jeffrey was really engaged with the story and is still talking about some of the characters. There is something so special about live theater and to have a way to experience that with your children in an environment designed for them is really wonderful.


Then, it was off to meet up with my friend Sara at Banyan Tree for a trunk show for the local activewear line of Grace & Ricci.


The line is versatile, comfortable, and made to go easily from out-and-about wear to workout right to your washing machine. Their motto of #SweatWithGrace certainly seems to be true. You can sweat with grace and style, too!


And while Saturday’s event was a one-time trunk show, you can regularly purchase Grace & Ricci online or at Cleveland Yoga Beachwood.

Sunday, I spent my afternoon at a yoga workshop focused specifically on balance poses at Harmony Studios. These poses have always been a challenge for me, so I really appreciated the chance to take a deeper dive into how to do the poses and keep my focus and composure.

Plus, the workshop was taught by one of my favorite and long-time teachers, Michael, which added a level of trust and understanding to the process that was really helpful.


I see you Half Moon. And I got you.


What a great way to end my weekend/start the new week! How was your weekend? Do you have a favorite local fish fry that you enjoyed?
