lately

There are no words for how busy it has been around here lately-or I guess I should say there are no brain cells left to think of words to explain how busy it has been lately. Lets just say our poor cars are crying for an oil change and getting dressed in the morning has now started to take up waaay too much time. As is goes though-a few random niceties came my way which I would like to dub my "brakes", as they slowed this crazy train life of mine down considerably, even if for just a second (which is about how long it took me to eat the delicious macaron above).

-(illegally?) picking sunflowers off the side of the road.

-the most refreshing strawberry soup (necessary to cool down on these still very warm fall days.)

-Heirloom tomatoes grown by an older couple, not just any older couple either, a completely adorable plaid-wearing, beat-up truck driving older couple. As you can see they took the time to write out each variety of tomato and tape it on so as to avoid any uneducated consumption of these beauties.

-being twinners with a most delicious grasshopper macaron.
