Breakfast

Spring Already?!

Happy Tuesday!

I had these totally horrible nightmares all night then woke up with a killer headache. Very, very weird. Sipping on some tea though and taking it easy, hoping it will fade away soon ๐Ÿ™

Chia oats for breakfast!

IMG_4600
I used 1/3 cup oats, 1 T chia seeds, 1/3 cup soymilk, 1/2 cup water, blueberries, blackberries, almond butter and cinnamon.
It’s SPRING outside! Excited for outdoor bootcamp with Anna, Michaela and Lisa followed by an afternoon of writing in my backyard. ๐Ÿ™‚
Have a great morning!

    Hope you’re feeling better soon! Sometimes nightmares help me work through crap I’m dealing with during the day…the headache that follows is no fun though!

    Hi Jenna,

    Feel better! I wanted to comment on your hair… I absolutely LOVE it all bouncy & volumized. i think it looks amazing, and there is a big difference even between that picture and some of the first ones you posted of your dark do! I think the volume really adds to the drama of it- in a good (great!) way.
