Today is the greatest day of the year! Happy Marathon Monday!!!
Marathon Monday, as it is affectionately called in Boston, is my favorite day of the year! I absolutely love it! 😀 Personally, I think Boston is an unfriendly and cranky city from November – March (maybe it’s just me?), but when Marathon Monday rolls around in mid-April, the city comes alive! Everyone is in such a great mood and the lively, holiday atmosphere (specifically along the marathon route) is like no other day– you can feel the crowd’s enthusiasm for the thousands of runners making their way to the finish line. This single day reminds me why I like living in Boston.
Boylston Street– close to the finish!
Hopkinton– near the start of the race.

I made a wonderful bowl of oats this morning, but I was more interested in snapping photos of my daffodils than I was breakfast!
Don’t daffodils just scream SPRING!?!
In the mix today: oats, wheatberries, ground flaxseed meal, vanilla hemp milk, peanut butter Puffins, and peanut butter. What a mix of goodies! I think the only thing that would have made this bowl better is Barney Butter! I read a little blurb in Self magazine about it yesterday, and now I am really starting to miss it! 😥
With iced coffee and a kiwi…
