a little mid-week Whimsy

hi darlings!

my morning has gotten off to a sweet & poetic start and i've been loving it so much that i wanted to share. here's a favorite poem by e.e. cummings which popped into my brain as i was sipping my morning coffee (chocolate glazed doughnut flavored deliciousness brought to you by Dunkin Donuts Bakery edition!)...


since feeling is first
who pays any attention
to the syntax of things
will never wholly kiss you;

wholly to be a fool
while Spring is in the world

my blood approves,
and kisses are better fate
than wisdom
lady i swear by all flowers. Don't cry
—the best gesture of my brain is less than
your eyelids' flutter which says

we are for each other: then
laugh, leaning back in my arms
for life's not a paragraph

And death i think is no parenthesis

This Morning's Mantra

No comments:
Hi darlings,

Today I started my morning with a run and a grateful mantra: Appreciate this moment.

It helped me see the trees along my familiar running path in a better light, it helped me thoroughly appreciate how cute that puppy was on one of his very first morning walks, it helped me thoughtfully analyze the negative thoughts that ran across my brain on the drive to work. It helped me a lot today, and I think that makes it worth sharing.

What about you? What's your mantra in this moment?

All I Can Say is... Donuts

Hi darlings, it's been awhile.

I'm elated to report that my hiatus from writing has run its course. I can point to a lot of reasons why I gave it a rest. I was tired, over-stressed, going through a career change, burnt out on running and so on and so forth. The reasons I stopped for awhile aren't really that important right now. I'd rather focus on the simple facts at hand:

I'm happy, rejuvenated and really can't wait to make this delicious recipe again...

My version of Taylor's copycat Paleo Donuts. Because:
  1. It's finally fall in Nashville
  2. Donuts
  3. Paleo donuts?
  4. P.S. they really are quite good.
Thank you for reading & have a wonderful day!
