Daylight Savings Time is really getting to me this year. I had been keeping up a super insane schedule of going to the gym or baking each day by 6am, working throughout the day, then baking again through the evening, until at least 10pm. Oh, well that’s just been shot! I always tell people how much I love the fall time change, because it forces me to slow down in the evenings and really take it easy. Well, but what happens when you don’t have that choice?! When you actually have loads to do?! It has not been an easy transition, but I think it will get easier soon. I have a wonderful, big order to work on tonight, that will help. 
Want to know my secret for waking up early and getting out of bed for going to gym? I pretend it’s the middle of winter, and I’m in Iceland. And it’s actually 9am, and not 530am. So, that way, it just seems normal. Do you think maybe I’ve lost it? Just maybe?
In other news, we as humankind, landed something on a comet. So that blows my mind. My husband and I had a heart-to-heart last night about outer space and planets. It’s not that I don’t care about learning about it all, but I just feel like it can’t be nearly as complicated as it is… So I just feel like I already understand enough of it. Boy. That is not the case. Poor husband was shocked at my knowledge (or lack there of)! We must accept the things we do not know and ask ‘why?’ when we can. But otherwise, just pretend you knew the moon’s size in comparison to the sun.

In honor of this season, let’s think like the Danes and latch on to hygge.

My birthday eve dinner request last week was for these banh mi tacos. Best tacos ever. 

I don’t know about you, but seeing a comet up close and personal is fricking insane.

Brussels sprout slaw with za’atar crostini? I’m in.

I don’t even like sugar cookies, but these are actually beautiful. And they are trashed up

Two sources led me to find the Local Milk blog this week. This cake with lavender and early grey has me swooning hard.
