- Wake up unassisted. No alarms allowed. This, for me, typically ends up being around 7:30am as a "sleeping in" time. Yes, I'm a freak.

Rituals : Self-Care Saturdays
With the current semester of school, I've managed to create a work schedule that provides for weekends off. And with weekends off comes a little self-care time to prep for the busy week ahead.

I just love how cool these plants are. AND TASTY!
It's a chilly morning here in Minneapolis. A perfect day to catch up on some homework and make butternut squash soup and roasted brussels sprouts.
Do you have a Saturday morning ritual to kick off the weekend right?
