PSA: If you need a gift for a holiday swap, I highly recommend the potted Christmas cacti from Sprout Home. Festive but still usable after the season, gender-neutral, easy to care for, and just about $20, cool pot included. I liked the idea so much that I snagged this one for myself (aka Old Black Thumb).

My Sunday Routine

…is my favorite thing in the world right now and I guard it fiercely.

I start at Little Goat Bread, with a latte and a toasted plain bagel with half of the peanut butter butter (not a typo, rather peanut butter and butter combined) normally slathered on.

Then I head to Whole Foods, at a time where the shelves are fully stocked, the two-tiered carts are plentiful and it’s too early for toddler naptime so all is peaceful. I grab a freshly-squeezed juice as a reward for when all the bags are emptied at home.

Yoga at noon, with my favorite teacher - a lengthy sweat session that occasionally leaves me sore well into the week.

I get home in time to watch the end of the noon football games, jump in the shower, start my laundry. I take my time drying my hair.

Evenings are for a low and slow dish - sometimes beef stew served with crusty bread purchased at the bakery in the morning, tonight it’s red wine-braised short ribs¬†minus a stolen glass for the cook. The aroma fills the house.
