    This week I watched a documentary about Israeli food - it's fascinating how rich their food culture is for being such a young country. I am so appreciative of all the cultures and how we bring something unique to the table. Watching the documentary made me HUNGRY for Israeli food!

    Last day of the challenge and feeling good! I am reminded of how this isn't about being PERFECT, it's about making a CONSCIOUS EFFORT! <3

    Really enjoyed walking to and from the library today, not only did I get my walk in, but got to see all the beautiful trees changing color in my neighborhood. MAGICAL!

    Got my walk on at the PDX Open Studios this afternoon even with all the rain! A beautiful excuse to meet and explore local artists in their studio space!

      Kudos to you for getting out in the rain and seeing local artist!

    Took advantage of a break in the rain to clear my head and get my daily walk in!

    Confession time....yesterday I did not do as well as I had hoped when it came to limiting my social media intake.....I succumbed to FOMO (fear of missing out!) TODAY IS A NEW DAY!

      Yes, don't be too hard on yourself and get back in the saddle. Hang in there!!

    Today on my walk I really enjoyed noticing the ombre color of the trees changing color. Mother Nature painting a masterpiece before our very eyes. It makes my <3 happy and I'm so grateful to live somewhere with SEASONS!

      Yes! When I go hiking (especially  with my daughter with her creative soul), I NOTICE plants and trees and even the  soil in our wonderful region. Change of seasons is a constant source of invigorating renewal for me. Yay! 🍂🍁🍂
