A big hug for you

I woke up feeling so loved this morning. The release of my coloring book yesterday was such a high, and the Launch Party last night was so fun. I can't think of a better way to have celebrated than by being surrounded by the most amazing support system I could ever ask for. Even if you weren't able to make it to the party, I still feel your support too :). The whole journey of making and releasing this book has been a wonderful reminder all along the way of how lucky I am to have such incredible people in my life. So, THANK YOU. I really mean it. :) You make my heart feel all the feelings.

homemade granola and resolutions

So my last post was in June of 2013. It was titled "Aspirations to be a better blogger" and that was obviously a fail. Oh well. It may be February, but one of this year's resolutions is to actually blog again, and to floss. I'm still flossing a month into 2014, so perhaps there is hope to get in the habit of posting interesting things.granola breakfast

This last weekend, I made homemade chocolate peanut butter granola. I love granola, but have never attempted making it because I assumed it'd be too tricky or involve ingredients I don't feel like buying. Wrong to both. One of my new favorite food blogs, Sally's Baking Addiction, has a great recipe for this. Surprisingly easy and extremely addicting. This morning I added it on plain greek yogurt, and then topped it with sliced bananas and warm peanut butter drizzle. Not only was I actually full until a late lunch, I had enough energy to run more than usual today (because I'm preparing for this 5k).

Last week I dropped off these Open/Closed signs to a local shop Wabi Sabi. I can't wait to see them on the door soon!

Also, it's cold outside, so it's nice to hang out inside with this guy.
