جایی که یخ پاره ها آویزانند و شکوفهها میرقصند
ولی در قلب من بهاری نیست
تو بهار من بودی، تابستان من هم
بی تو ، همیشه زمستان است
شبها، یاسها اتاق روشن از مهتاب مرا عطر آگین میکنند
تو بهار من بودی ، تابستان من هم
من به شمال میروم و تا تو را جستجو کنم
مانند پرنده ای بر بال باد، قلب من پیش میرود
بهار، قلبم را به شمال درخشان فرستاد
تو بهار من هستی، تابستان من هم
و من آرام نمیگیرم تا تو را بیابم
- جون بایز
Hands up if you are awful at making sure you drink enough water! 🙋🏼♀️
That was definitely me!
I was kindly gifted the insulated bottle from @moon.bottles and I’ve been drinking so much more.
It’s made such a difference for me having a bottle which keeps my water cold (for 24 hrs)
I love the design and quality of the bottle.

gloomy days 🌧 + overripe bananas 🍌 call for baking double chocolate banana bread 👌🏼 this recipe is easy, delicious, moist & fudgy without being heavy. chocolate pretty much solves all my problems and this bread was no exception 🍫
recipe from @twopeasandpod but I healthified it a bit:
1 cup white whole wheat flour
1/2 cup cacao powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp sea salt
3-4 small ripe bananas, mashed
1/4 cup oil (avocado or coconut)
1/2 cup sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup + 2 tbsp chocolate chips
✨set oven at 350*
✨mix flour, cacao powder, baking soda and salt in a medium small bowl with whisk, set aside.
✨mix bananas, oil, butter, sugar, egg and vanilla extract until mixed well.
✨add dry ingredients to wet and mix until just combined, fold in 1/2 cup chocolate chips. ✨pour batter into a greased 9x5 inch loaf pan. sprinkle remaining 2 tbsps chocolate chips on top.
✨bake for 50-60 mins. let cool at least 15 mins before digging in ☺️
I’m sorry I haven’t been posting much, some foodies are really embracing the “stay at home and cook with what ya got” posts but I can’t sugar coat it - I’m not feeling too inspired lately.
This virus is destroying lives left and right and instead of pretending everything is okay and posting happy healthy recipes, I’m just taking some time off. I hope you guys understand and will still stick with me.. it’s been an emotional roller coaster over here.. so I’ll just be posting when I’m feelin it✌🏼
PS can we get a hallelujah, amen for all the healthcare workers ESPECIALLY the badass nurses on the front lines?! Most of my favorite people are nurses and the amount of blood, sweat & tears they’re putting into caring for patients right now is astounding and terrifying and they should all be given free alcohol + ice cream for life 🍻🍦🥂

Sunshine is delicious, rain is refreshing, wind braces us up, snow is exhilarating; there is really no such thing as bad weather, only different kinds of good weather.
It's been super rainy here in Socal. Normally I love it! But when you are stuck at home you desperately long to be outside in nature. 💜
The last few days have been hard. Fitness wise it's been great! I'm working out, drinking my water, tracking my food. Mentally though? There's a lot to think about. 💜
I miss my students. I miss my friends. I miss going to the beach. You wanna know what I'ma do once we are all not grounded anymore? I'ma go to the beach to take my progress pictures! 💜
I'm going to enjoy the little things. California is in my heart and soul. Being able to go to the beach whenever is a privilege. And gosh darn it. Bathing suit progress pictures beat mirror ones any day!!!! Now on to buy a bathing suit. 💜
How do you define happiness? The moments where I’ve felt the most clear and present and happy have always been the simplest: waking up in a new place, a change in the weather, spending time with my favorite person... rather than the days that are expected to mean a lot (ya know, like graduation and stuff). Especially now, it’s important to take a step back and recognize what it is you really love in life, what makes your heart feel full even when the sky is grey? What parts of “normal” life are you missing most? Tell me your thoughts in the comments below!! 🚐
Just some butternut squash and kale soup enhanced with fresh Rosemary, onion, green onions, time, lemongrass, chocolate mint, oregano - picked fresh this morning - then blended with diced red potatoes, tofu, Romaine lettuce, chia seeds and vegan mozzarella.
It definitely felt like a skip day and this beautiful rain.
Stay well my friends and enjoy your day. #lovelife#stayhome # eathealthy #rainydays
Sliding into a new week... although I’m not exactly sure which week that is. 😆 They are all starting to blend together at this point. Anyone else??? The rain just started and I’m already missing the sunshine. Thankful for fun indoor toys like Ledger’s slide from @officiallittletikes that help keep my boys playing and getting some exercise while stuck inside. What are some of your favorite indoor toys for kids? I’m looking for more great ideas that could possibly double for Easter fun too. Please comment or tag your favorite brands so I can check them out. Thanks for sharing 😉
Day 3,784,279 of my pajama-jammy-jam and I’ve finally ordered several new sets. My favorites are on the blog today, link in bio 🔼

What do you do when it’s a rainy spring day? Sleep all day of course! 😴 What have you all done today?
