farm-to-table is really all the rage. but admittedly we l.o.v.e. it!

we wanted to share two recent gem of FTT chi finds.

locally crafted bouquets. all flower arrangements are sourced by their team and there are no add ons or extra fees plus they deliver for free to most chi zip codes! $35 and get this: each flower purchase benefits a local charity. yep, we love it. 

our good friend albe sent over big delicious planet's website last night. stylish green catering in west town AND they have a spot that is open from 7am-3pm, mon-fri that we can't wait to go check out. the daily specials change on the daily and we're so excited that we know a spot like this exists in the city. be sure to follow their insta to stay in the loop on what they are cookin' up daily.

C's Petit Déjeuner

we're sorry. radio silence over here! s has been busy training for a half marathon, k is expecting (soon!!) and i launched my own biz (website coming soon!)... with all that said, we've been super duper busy. we're back tho and excited to share some adventures, recipes, advice (take it or leave it), dating stories & lots more... on to breakfast...

they say breakfast is the most important meal and well, my day doesn't officially start until i have breakfast (and 1-2... ok maybe 3 cups of coffee). since i now call home also my 'office' i wake up early, make some coffee then break mid-morning for breakfast. here are two of my favorite ez and healthy choices for a lil' petit déjeuner that i think you all should try!

o m g egg in an avocado

ingredients you need: 1 avocado, 2 organic eggs, your choosing of shredded cheese & fresh herbs
pairing optional: wheat toast (drizzled with olive oil), heirloom tomatoes, coffee & oj

1. pre heat oven to 425 degrees
2. cut avocado in half, take out the pit 
3. crack egg and pour carefully into center of avocado
4. carefully put avocados on a baking pan or sheet
5. let those egg avocados bake for 15-18 minutes (i stick to 18 mins)
6. voila! o m g egg in an avocado

peanut butter toast w/ banana & honey

ingredients you need: wheat toast, 1 banana, peanut butter, honey (i suggest/love ellis farms honey)
pairing optional: coffee w/ almond milk, red grapes

1. toast a slice of wheat bread
2. smear that peanut butter
3. add sliced banana (and eat the left over banana slices!)
4. drizzle honey
5. voila! 

délicieux et profitez-en! 


p.s. the endless love soundtrack has been playing on repeat at my 'office' you gotta give it a listen!

Lone Wolf

if you're like us you look forward going to the airport to get your hands on all the newest fashion magazines to read in flight. we may have kindles and ipads, but nothing beats having a magazine or book in your hands... something we hope our kids feel one day too (technology --> curse & a blessing).

we want to intro you to the newest mag we recently came across: lone wolf, a magazine that will feed your soul and intellect- yep we said it, or so the EIC did. lw skips the diet and sex tips and gets down to the educational content (in a way that sucks you in).

the magazine itself is beautiful (see a preview of volume 10 above), but there is substance behind each feature and editorial. who are the readers? the EIC based in san francisco says, "they are driven, hungry and talented as hell." volume 10 is all about 1920/30s in paris and the inspiring creative culture that surrounded this era.

each volume of lone wolf moving forward will feature a style icon of some sort. they choose inspiring women who have done amazing things. any one from an artist to a musician, ect. but women who have been left out of the cultural convo. many layers to this magazine...we plan to order and we think you should too. check it out here. here's to the creative freelancers, dreamers and ladies who want to change the world... this mag may just have your name written all over it.
