Grateful for...

1) Avocado Toast
+ a chilled glass of grapefruit juice and hot French press coffee = my new breakfast obsession

2) The discovery of a long, lost Anthro gift card + some time to myself to peruse the new Newbury store.  I scored the greatest new shirt for spring!  Check it out:
This thin, cotton button down is so airy and much more flow-y and bohemian looking in real life.  I love the slightly mismatched buttons, and the fact that just when you think it is kind of a prim and proper pinstripe number, boom!
The cut out in the back turns that notion on its ear, and shows off that pretty part of your back where your shoulder blades meet.  Sounds wacky, but it really works. I shall be wearing this one to shreds.
Preggo friends: I think this could also be the world's perfect breastfeeding shirt: easy access with the button-down, super flow-y in the tum area to accommodate postpartum smushiness, and the vent in the back would feel so good for those crazy nursing hot flashes. Just a thought. :)

3) Killer, all natural moisturizer
I was out of facial moisturizer and saw Mad Hippie Face Cream on sale for $20 at our local Whole Foods.  An unbeatable price point + incredible ingredient list of natural anti-aging compounds (peptides, acai, argan oil, reservatrol) + name certain to make me smile every time I open the medicine cabinet = sold.  I am really loving this stuff.  It is hard to find natural beauty products that are affordable and effective, and this is most definitely one.  My skin already feels tighter after just a few days of using the face cream, and it absorbs quickly into the skin, saturating even the driest patches of winter itchiness.  They have a line that includes eye cream, serum and a cleanser, and I hope to try it all.  Look for the brand at Whole Foods or your local health food store.

Good food, good clothes, good products. 
Great friends and family.
Life is grand.
