current favorites

life is wild! there's so much buzzing around in my head - work is crazy busy, wedding planning includes so many trillions of details it seems (and the lessons i mentioned earlier aren't learned all at once!), the boy and i are headed to utah this weekend, and i am moving into our new place on tuesday. i am finding a center in the middle of this swirling, and i am really happy.

here's some things i'm loving lately:
-chocolate drizzled coconut luna bars. i'm kind of obsessed.
-bodypump classes. i am determined to be in the best shape of my life for our wedding, and i am feeling strong. can i just share some self-pride for one second and say that i have been doing ten minute planks at the gym? yes - ten straight minutes of planking (switching to side planks at different intervals).
-etsy. so many pretty things that are just what i want for the wedding.
-almonds and raisins. i've been mixing raw almonds with the jumbo mixed raisins from trader joe's and i just think it's the best snack!
-7th and 8th graders. the returning students who know me from last year - i just really love them. and there are some tiny new 6th graders that are so darling.
-strawflowers. i took some home from my city bridal shower, and they're still super bright and alive on my dining room table.
-dish n dash. it's the less-fancy take-out version of my favourite restaurant, and i am soooo into their chicken shwarma wrap, california style (added avocado!).
-green apple photography (our wedding photographer - so excited to work with lindsey!), rosemary card film and photography (our videographer who will come to all our wedding events and create a highlight film), and lisa rupp design (she created a wedding website for us that i adore!).
-npr. i love listening on the way to work and was particularly struck by today's "perspective." i totally teared up on my commute.

-the boy. i'm madly in love with him.
