Mondays after long vacations take extra long showers, extra PJ time, and copious amounts of coffee.
Josiah and I saw so much of this insanely beautiful country of ours throughout the past ten days. We drove from Chicago to Sioux Falls, SD, through The Badlands National Park to Cody, WY, through Yellowstone National Park to Grand Lake, CO, through Rocky Mountain National Park to Estes Park to Denver to Omaha and back to Chicago. Fortunately those 49 hours of driving produced some great business ideas, some terrible business ideas, lots of made-up songs, and only moderate complications. The trip still ended with us saying "I love you" and laughing hysterically at my attempts to brush up on some improv storytelling skills (which are pretty non-existent) so I would call it a success. I married a trip planning genius and it was such a privilege to embark on this adventure together. More pictures coming soon, but for now I want to wish you the happiest of Mondays and share some of the things that caught my eye this week. Happy Monday, friends!
1. You can never have too many sweet potato recipe ideas in your repertoire. I'll for sure be trying this one.
2. I know I am SUPER behind, but I LOVE those succulent cakes. Here are some tips for decorating your own! If you make one, send me a picture! Or better yet, invite me over and teach me your ways!
3. I ordered these last week and LOVE THEM. Totally makes me want to live at the beach.
4. Dying to try these seemingly not-too-sweet popsicles as an afternoon pick-me-up.
5. I love this apartment!
