Those gorgeous pale blue skies reveal a tentative warmth. Spring doesn't feel quite real yet. Neither does anything that happened yesterday in Boston. Boston native, the always eloquent Erin of Elements of Style put it beautifully. I'm heading out for a run bright and early tomorrow morning, and I'll dedicate it to everyone in Boston. It will be my most mindful run yet.
Head over to Local Milk to congratulate the lovely Beth on her one year blog anniversary (it's hard to believe that gorgeous blog has only been around for a year!).
Joy makes some almond milk smoothies and I'm digging her flavor choices: beet, blackberry, and kale. Okay, I'm not really digging the kale option, but I know I should be adding that to my diet.

Kelsey at Happyolks always posts the most meaningful essays. Her words on life and the choices we make are full of wisdom and careful thought. Plus, there's a recipe for quinoa and roasted vegetable salad.

Make sure you travel to Saveur before Friday to vote in the annual food awards. Some of my faves are nominated!
