Weekend Bits

Cornflowers!

Hope everyone had a great weekend! Mine was all about relaxation. I skipped going out in favor of early bed times, early morning runs, some movie-watching, lots of cooking, and one absolutely gorgeous day spent at the farmers' market. Sometimes I find that after my insanely busy work weeks, I need a bit of time alone for some introspection--it's important to pause once in a while and take stock in how you're feeling about work, relationships, friendships, projects, and anything else that happens to be going on in your life. It's an effective way to stay self-aware and avoid burn-out. Plus, how else would you discover amazing TED talks like this one, otherwise? xo

 My all-time favorite navy Celine bag, which makes a perfect cradle for my new Canon DSLR camera.

 Ramps! These guys have such a short season--get them while you can!

One of the things I made with my ramps--Martha Stewart's pasta with ramps.
