…is what it FINALLY feels like we’re having around here! The sun is shining, the flowers are just starting to break through their buds…I feel like we’re finally getting the weather I’ve been looking forward to for the past two months!
And so, of course the nice weather finally comes right when things get SUPER busy around here. Ryan has been traveling a lot for conferences and other school-related things, and our classes are both wrapping up in the next few weeks. We only have a few weeks left—but they’re going to be doozies!
We’re doing our best to just get through the work, and to take breaks for fun when we can—which is what we did on Wednesday night. We drove up to State College to see the musical Spring Awakening—have you heard of it? It was awesome! The whole musical was so unique and energizing—we both loved it!
Whenever things get busy around here, our meals seem to get simpler and simpler. But—I think the simplicity is nice in spring. It kind of helps you to reset your body after the long, heavy winter. My lunch today definitely felt like a spring awakening:
Mmmm…mung beans cooked with a little garlic salt, plus avocado slices and a little sprinkle of cumin seeds. I plated up the mung beans and avocado right after the mung beans were finished cooking, so the avocado got kind of warm and almost melty on the bottom—it was delicious!
The simplicity of this meal just felt so gentle and nourishing…perfect for spring!
That’s about all here. Ryan is in DC for the day with a group of students, so I’m working on cleaning out my closet. I’m scheduling in some long walks with the dogs out in the sun, too…hope you’re soaking it up wherever you are as well!
