Why breakfast is champion

Posted by Autumn

While it’s status as the most important meal of the day may be debatable, the morning meal solidly owns the trophy for "most awesomest" meal of the day. I’m talking about breakfast, people! Wake up and smell the toast—it’s burning!Breakfast is the undisputed champion of meals for a number of reasons: Breakfast is unprejudiced.

Low-tech letters

Posted by Autumn

When was the last time you wrote a letter? Not email, not an IM, not a Facebook wall post.

My host sister taught me because she had recently learned, and my first project was a purple fun-fur scarf. Then I picked it up as a more involved hobby when I was in college, and my boyfriend's mom (now my mother-in-law) encouraged me. She bought me lots of yarn, so I couldn't refuse! Do you have a favorite place to craft (studio, living room, on the subway, [Read More...]
