- fuzzy mittens!
- and a belted coat. for cold cold cold nights.
- couldn't find an image, but a neutral watch like this one...crow toddy watch in "bisque."



last night i was thinking about time. i guess most people see time as 
count down, 
a sequence, 
moments that pass by or moments leading up to
something...usually you see it as numbers lit on a watch or the movement of the hour and minute hand signifying that time is in fact
alive..but last night...i thought of time as a rope.

i had this vision of time being fibers in a rope stretching and loosely and tightly intertwining.  a vision of instances in time as a fray in the rope, becoming separated, but always meeting back to the center, 
the core. 
time distracted and time losing focus, twisting and turning, organized and chaotic.


healthy snax.

today's foods are all about "healthy" "organic" "natural" "low fat" "gluten free" etc etc etc, but there is way too much information and way too many choices. and for a girl like me, i crave crave crave french fries, chocolate, icecream, all that deliciousness on the reg, but need a healthy alternative to those treats. it's hard/time consuming to sort through all the articles and recommendations without risking and sacrificing flavor for healthy. so here are a list of my favorite healthy snax (because i am a grazer, so i'm told) and i hardly eat real meals. 

1. pop chips (all natural / gluten free / no preservatives or artificial flavors)
-i am a huge fan of salty crunchy and these chips are the bomb.com.)

2. fruit leather (100% natural, and a serving of fruits!)
- i like berry flavors..
3. veggie chips
4. no pudge brownies (so much chewier. and sometimes i skip the baking part...)

5. kashi granola bars (they have dark chocolate cherry, and pumpkin. yum.)
6. haagen dazs chocolate ice (dairy free! high-five to those 
with IBS/acid reflux)
