One of my favorite things about blogging is having a space to purge all the random thoughts that swarm inside my brain. Doing this also allows me to connect with other like minded bloggers, forming lifelong connections and genuine friendships.
Sharing my love for plant based food and cats allowed me to connect with Kayse, a creative girl with a green thumb and a hand for art. After lusting over her art work for months, she kindly sent me a customized dapper cat portrait of my dude.
Words cannot express my gratitude. Please do yourself a favor and check out her online shop, the art she creates is so unique and fabulous.
Ok, time to purge some thoughts.
When I’m not blogging, or having a stare off with my cat, I’m usually eating. I haven’t posted a recipe on the blog in MONTHS, simply because I’ve been enjoying exploring OTHER peoples food. I’ve found a few companies that cater to walking science projects like myself, and I happily support them. Local eats are my favorite.
When I’m not eating I’m running. 100 mile May gave me my recent running mindset. I’m in a fantastic routine where I am excited about my daily runs, and on the off chance I’m not I skip it for something else. It’s a beautiful thing.
There’s also more room for cupcakes when I have a consistent running routine, that’s also a beautiful thing. Balance in bliss.
You’d never guess these cupcakes were dairy free, gluten free, soy free, rice free, nut free, egg free, dinosaur free, spinach free, & broken glass free.
They fall into the “if one doesn’t take up your entire hand you need two” category.
I think I need to make these two hand treat photos a thing.
When I’m not eating or running I’m playing with coffee at work. I haven’t created any of my own coffee tastings lately, but I have been putting together mini ones at work for my coworkers with featured coffee’s and Starbucks food.
When I’m not working I’m still spending time with my coworkers. We’re family.
We all love to drink coffee.
When I’m not with other people I’m exploring alone.
I love blogging, but lately I’ve been enjoying life away from it all more. Eating, running, working, and exploring have taken top spot which is typical of the summer months. I just can’t soak up enough adventure fast enough!
On that note, I’m off to explore. I mean…off to work.
Q: What things take up most of your time?
