Hi darlins'! It's been awhile (again). Award for least consistent blogger goes to this lady right here -- but let's not fight about silly things like that. I'd rather engage you with a much more interesting topic -- food!

This month I jumped back into the Foodie Pen Pal program that Lindsay at The Lean Green Bean blog puts on and got hooked up with an amazing woman named Alyssa from Texas. Alyssa writes over at Kind of a Mess (she's a hoot) and was kind enough to send me bunches of lovely treats. When her box arrived, I couldn't wait to see what she had sent (and neither could Shadow):

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?
