Read // Watched // Listened // Savored: November Edition

Here are some things I'm loving right now.

Reading
Having experimented with different ways of eating, I've found I feel best when I avoid gluten and minimize grains in general. I recently picked up The Primal Blueprint, and am finding that many of the author's recommendations echo the way I've started eating intuitively.

I'm still working my way through The Untethered Soul. I'm trying to read it slowly, to allow myself to really absorb the wisdom deep in my bones.

I love Susannah's Something for the Weekend posts. I look forward to them all week!

I'm adding this cookbook to my holiday wish list. #midwestisbest

Watching & Listening
I randomly watched 2 Days in Paris while home sick a couple weeks ago, and found it to be just the kind of quirky, non-traditional rom-com that I enjoy.

Loving Radiolab in the background while cooking dinner.

I can't stop listening to this Miley Cyrus & Mumford & Sons "Little Wrecking Ball" mash-up. I'm also loving this song.

Savoring
Real grass-fed organic cream in my coffee.

The Denver Botanic Gardens (pictured above). My friend bought a membership, so I've accompanied her several times in the past few weeks. It's such a peaceful place to visit.

This holiday candle. Yum.

Hot morning showers with this coconut pumpkin body wash. (Have you tried Acure's products yet? I can't get enough!).

Spending a solid hour before work at a local coffee shop with my journal.

Lunchtime walks. With the short, dark days, I find it really helps to get my daily fix of Vitamin D at lunch. I pack a pair of sneakers and take 30-45 minutes, sometimes with headphones and sometimes chatting with a co-worker. I return to work refreshed and revived for the afternoon.

What are you reading, watching, listening to, and savoring right now?
