Lee: I wanna learn how to play this on the drums. #forevertherosas Apparently, Lee likes cumbias. πŸ™‚

Day 11: We're baaack! We stopped in #OceansideCA to see my parents and now we're off to the South Bay to see Lee's grandparents. I've missed my chaparral landscapes and our beaches (that I never go into but I admire from a respectful distance. Lol). #mariandleedriveacrossamerica #Roadtrip #GoingBackToCali #DrivingAcrossAmerica #NoPlaceLikeHome
Day 9: We drove through #Utah yesterday. The rock formations are spectacular. The colors, the arches, the size -- breathtaking. I tried to take it all in but also keep my eyes on the road. Haha. As we drove towards #Arizona, I could see a familiar sky: smoke from a wildfire. The sky got more hazy and the smell of smoke came into the car. Wildfires are really scary but they also make me feel closer to home. #mariandleedriveacrossamerica #GoingBackToCali #Roadtrip #DrivingAcrossAmerica #ArchesNationalPark

Day 8: We spent the night in Colorado then ran some errands -- oil change, car wash (lots of bugs), and haircut (for Lee). It's beautiful here! I'm not outdoorsy at all but I can appreciate a view this spectacular. Mountains all around. Tomorrow we'll be heading to #Utah. #mariandleedriveacrossamerica #Roadtrip #DrivingAcrossAmerica #GoingBackToCali #BreckenridgeCO #GrandJunction
Days 6 & 7: We went to the #CornPalace in #SouthDakota. It was... interesting. Haha. As we were driving towards #Wyoming, I could see lightning in the distance. It was stunning the way it lit up the horizon. We had to pull over because it was raining so hard though. Today, we saw the #DevilsTower and we drove down to #CheyenneWY. Also, nothing says "'Merica " and "USA! USA!" like visiting #MtRushmore. #mariandleedriveacrossamerica #GoingBackToCali #Roadtrip #DrivingAcrossAmerica

Day 5: Iowa and Nebraska have been pretty uneventful. Haha. We've seen a lot of corn fields. Although, I must say, #DesMoines has a really cute downtown. We stopped in #Omaha for the night and we're going to the zoo tomorrow -- the #OmahaZoo is rated No. 1 in the U.S.! #mariandleedriveacrossamerica #GoingBackToCali #Roadtrip #DrivingAcrossAmerica
Day 4: I didn't take any pictures yesterday. We blasted through the rest of New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Indiana. We really only stopped in #Cleveland to eat some #CincinnatiChili at @officialskylinechili (it was delicious!). We spent the day in #Chicago or #ChiTown (as the youths call it), and now we're enjoying some tea and smoothies at @madamezuzus. We're exhausted. #mariandleedriveacrossamerica #Roadtrip #DrivingAcrossAmerica #GoingBackToCali
Day 2: I can't believe that we've been on the road for 2 days and we are barely in #Pennsylvania. (Not that we're in any hurry or anything but New York is much bigger than we thought.) #NiagraFalls was glorious (shout out to @maidofmist). I keep replaying the views in my head, trying not to forget what I saw. 
Tonight, we stopped in #EriePA to rest for a bit and then we're off to #Cleveland! #mariandleedriveacrossamerica #GoingBackToCali #Roadtrip #DrivingAcrossAmerica
Day 1: We left #LongIsland yesterday. 😞 On our way to #Niagra, we topped at @stacksespresso in #AlbanyNY for some coffee and kept driving until #SyracuseNY, where we decided to sleep. Upstate New York is beautiful, by the way. Now that we've had a restful night's sleep, we have energy and we're off to #NiagraFalls. I wanted to drive through Canada and end up in Detroit but Lee doesn't have a passport. πŸ˜‘ #mariandleedriveacrossamerica #NewYork #Roadtrip #GoingBackToCali #DrivingAcrossAmerica

After an @offthemat Yoga, Purpose, and Action Leadership Intensive (and it WAS super intense) at @omegainstitute, I'm home and I feel refreshed, joyful, and inspired. The lessons I've learned and the friendships I've made this week are so powerful. I couldn't be more grateful to @halayoga, @suzannesterlinglive and @seanecorn for creating a safe space where I could express myself, work through my issues, and find my purpose. πŸ“ΏπŸ•‰

Benefit of being in New York: we're able to drive up the street for @dogfishbeer #120minuteIPA the few times a year that it's available. #dogfishhead #120minute #NewYork #LongIsland #beer #IPA #craftbeer #beerporn
It POURED while we were waiting for #RodneyYee and @colleensaidman. We got absolutely soaked and the water literally flowed over our mats. Everyone was dancing and laughing as the sky pounded us with rain. Thankfully, class was delayed, not canceled. What an amazing experience to practice in #TimesSquare and be guided by two wonderful yogis. And I totally recognized @yogawithgene while he was in a headstand, with his back facing me! 😁 #SolsticeinTimesSquare #MindOverMadness2015 #RainOrShine #YogaInTimeSquare #Yoga #NYC #InternationalYogaDay #SummerSolstice #FindinStillness #YogaInTheRain

So glad to be home! #SanFrancisco isn't even the city I call "home" but it feels so good to be in #Cali! Clouds and all! #SanDiego #OceansideCA #VirginAmerica
@sadienardini spoke to me today. (Not just when we chatted to take this picture.) Something in her class really hit home. She said, "You are good enough! You are where you need to be today!" I got emotional and was reminded that these breakthroughs are the reason I practice. The universe tipped its hat to me later in the day as #DharmaMittra said, "when the student is ready, the teacher will appear."

I had James Fitzgerald (or Jim if you're on first name basis with the only forensic linguist ever hired by the FBI's BAU) sign my book. I had him write that quote to remind me that sometimes you have to render an opinion and know that it's okay to be wrong. This is a paraphrased quote from #CriminalMinds #Amplification (season 4, episode 24). For the true @crimmindscbs fans, the character of #AlexBlake is modeled after him and his girlfriend Natalie Schilling. #nerdingout #ForensicLinguistics #FBI #LinguisticProfiling #HofstraUniversity
