Happy Friday


Did any of you get outside this morning? If the view outside your window was anything like mine, I bet you couldn’t help yourself.  The sunrise here in Minneapolis was extraordinary. As I took Audrey out for her morning walk, the sky was pink and yellow and the clouds seem to hover only a hundred yards above the sidewalk.

I’m very thankful for mornings like this one. I’m also grateful for a weekend escape.

After work this evening, a dear friend will be picking me up and we’re both abandoning our men for a long-overdue girls’ weekend.  All week my friends and I have much messaging about what we’re bringing to the cabin, and we’re not talking booze.

So far we’ve got: brownies, rhubarb crisp, stuff for s’mores, spinach and artichoke dip (provided by yours truly), muffins, a fall snack mix, pizza…ha! The best part is we’re generally very health-conscious.

I wish you all a fantastic weekend! If you’re in the mood to browse, you might enjoy the following…
