This morning I slept in, and it was AWESOME. I had some crazy dreams, though! They seemed pretty real.
For breakfast, I’d been craving a fruit smoothie even though it’s pretty cold in my house. So I satisfied my craving this morning:

Since the smoothie was cold, I brewed up some Earl Grey Lavender tea.
After breakfast, I went to the park to meet up with some friends for a run!
