Eating trail mix properly takes some self-restraint. If I’m not careful, I will eat all of the chocolate chips first, then plow through the dried fruit and almonds, leaving nothing behind but some tired cashews and a wad of sticky raisins. Recently, I made it to the bottom of the bag and still had a chocolate chip or two to go. Wow! I am such an adult right now! I congratulated myself. Waking up early to exercise? Saving for retirement? Child’s play. But someone who can make it through a bag of trail mix without dumping it out into a bowl for easy chocolate chip access? That is one self-actualized individual.
A place for all things autumnal…the crunch the leaves make under your feet, the crisp air that cools skin still sun-kissed from summer, the rustic colors, and the cozy sweaters, socks, and layers.
As the weather turns crisp and rainy, I want to climb right into this pinterest board.
