lovely things about today:

roux gazes longingly at my newfound, super delicious chocolate greek yogurt made with fresh milk from grassfed gawgiaaa cows and blended with a delightful mix of cinnamon, cacao & a dash of cayenne. mmm hello there, new favorite dessert!

{} waking up on my own at 6:30am after getting an epic nine hours of sleep the night prior

{} taking roux on his long walk in the chilly early morning air while listening to npr morning edition {i listened to this interesting story. my suggestion for a section to include on the new design? “non-food ingredients” or maybe “industrial waste byproduct ingredients”}

{} a great client meeting at gallery espresso with my october bride + groom & their moms

{} a fun floral appointment with –^ couple where we nailed down some design specifics for their venue space

{} a productive trip to the farmer’s market, where i found the delicious yogurt pictured above and stocked up on some of my weekly essentials {kale, broccoli, sweet potatoes, eggplants, eggs, ground buffalo meat – you get the idea!} 

{} a gloriously ginormous, filling, amazingly tasty grassfed burger on a pretzel bun from public kitchen & bar downtown

{} scoring some adorable + inexpensive rose gold drop earrings from red clover, a cute little boutique in which i heart browsing for dresses

{} indulging in a coconut + dark chocolate confection at the ever-amazing back in the day bakery

{} getting roux’s talons nails ground down so they will {inshallah} no longer break through my skin and leave horrible yellow/green bruises

{} signing roux up for beginner puppy training classes so that –^ can be avoided in the future regardless of his nail length/sharpness
