Welcome to PITH + VIGOR

Warmest wishes

As I type, this site is still very much a work in progress and I am looking forward to updating this post and these words to declare it ready to go. But for now, understand that things are changing constantly and new bits and pieces are being sorted out regularly.

Issue #1 is in the mail to all subscribers and you should see it in your mailbox very soon. We are so excited to hear what you think.

Additionally, you may have seen the news over on Studio ‘g’ that this site will soon become the single site for both PITH + VIGOR and the blog (formerly known as Studio ‘g’) – I am trying desperately to come up with some clever Prince-ly pun on that but I appear – at the moment – to be tapped out.  This change has caused alot of greif on the back end, but we are working hard to put everything in place, and will set up a permanent re-direct (from www.studiogblog.com to www.pithandvigor.com) just as soon as everything is ready.

All of this should be ready for the New Year when regular posting will resume.

Happy Holidays!

The P+V team

The Rose Parade: A Look Back to One Year Ago Today

Designing a Yoga Garden

Designing a Yoga Garden

For over 25 years, running has been a constant in my life but with the recent onset of knee pain, my orthopedist has advised I pick a new form of exercise — which has led me to yoga. I’ve toyed around with yoga as a way to stretch and meditate over the past couple of years, but…

Holiday Wreath Inspiration

Holiday Wreath Inspiration

Wreaths are such ubiquitous holiday decorations, I find that most years I want to rebel against the traditional cliché of it all and just hang nothing… …but then I see beautiful creations like these and suddenly I’m trying to find billy buttons in the middle December. (I actually just one-clicked seeds for next year here: 20…

A Studio ‘g’ Holiday Shopping List

A Studio ‘g’ Holiday Shopping List

My wife asked me as we drove with our four kids from Maine to North Carolina, what I would like for Christmas. You know the feeling of not really wanting anything other than warmth, good company, good food, and a healthy, happy family. Well, I am having those feelings this holiday season but there are…
