what then shall i do this morning?
how we spend our days is, of course, how we spend our lives.
- annie dillard
when you wake from your nightly slumber as the sun rises each morning, do you take the opportunity to revel in the beauty of a new day? perhaps you roll out your mat and greet the day with sun salutations, waking your body and your spirit. perhaps you plunge into a warm bath before choosing which pair of heels matches your pretty almond-hued dress. perhaps you let your thoughts become cursive writing on the recycled pages of a cloth-bound journal. the morning is ideal for starting the day with a fresh body, with a fresh mind and a fresh spirit. let these yummy & nourishing suggestions inspire you to enjoy the perfect breakfast for you... and a brighter morning!
