Err...listening? Barack Obama's audiobook is amazing so far, and hearing his dulcet tones definitely makes me feel calmer...and nostalgic.
Breath with Yoga with Adriene
This is my 4th year in a row participating in Yoga with Adriene's 30 day yoga journey, and it's truly the best way to spend your January. The practices are short, Adriene is a lovely and hilarious teacher, and it's totally free! Join me!
Darkness RISING is one of my favorite organizations to support. Founded by the amazing Carlita Victoria, their goal is to inspire conversations about mental health, address issues which directly affect the Black community, connect attendees to resources, and erase the stigma.
Little Graye Bakery
Little Graye Bakery has the most amazingly delicious baked goods out there, with a mission that makes you feel proud of all the cookies you ate. 10% of the proceeds from every baked good sold are donated to that month's featured organization fighting for anti-racism, disability rights, and LGBTQIA visibility and equality.
My new puppy, Olive
Alright so...I'm not sure this counts as a noodle or notion, but come on...how could I not share this sweet face? She sparks joy for SURE! Follow me on Instagram for loads of Olive updates.
The Dreaming Room
This album by Laura Mvula was released in 2016, but I didn't find it until 2020 (shout out to James Acaster's podcast, Perfect Sound Whatever), and it quickly became my favorite discovery of the year. I will definitely continue listening to it in 2021 and beyond!
