Let the Duluth weekend getaway begin :)

Still digesting all of the things I learned on this trip - we met a lot of people and had many important interactions in a very short 2-day period. One thing is for sure though: it was wonderful to finally meet in person with all of the people that I’ve been working with via phone or email for months now. That face-to-face interaction goes a long way, for me at least.

Nothing can get me out of bed faster on a Sunday than the anticipation of a morning spent baking. With all of my travelling lately, I haven’t had much time to cook or bake for myself, so I was extra excited when my roommate offered up a bunch of overripe bananas for use in my baking adventures.
I recently pinned a recipe for Skinny Raspberry Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins from Sally’s Baking Addiction, so that’s what I made this morning. The whole juicy berries and mashed bananas help to keep the muffins moist without any butter or oil needed. A combination of brown sugar and honey add some extra sweetness, and you can’t forget about the chocolate chips! Sally also says that these freeze well, so I might pop a handful in the freezer to enjoy a few weeks/months from now.
3 cheers for Sunday morning baking!

girl scouts take no shit


I always try to think about how I interact with young girls, working to move away from my instinctual comments about their hair or clothes, and instead ask them about their ideas and passions.

Photos from my trip to NYC can be found a few posts back. Highlights from the trip include visiting 1 World Trade Center, Chelsea Market, Times Square, the Brooklyn Bridge, and the High Line. Plus we saw Matilda the Musical, mostly because I insisted above all the other Broadway show options and no one else in the group had as strong of a preference. My love for Roald Dahl runs deep <3

Got my hurrrrs cut today! It was time for a change, and I&#8217;m loving it so far. The real test will be how my natural wavy texture behaves with this new cut&#8230; it&#8217;s easy to love a new haircut after it&#8217;s been professionally blown out and styled.  I&#8217;ll have to report back.
