Tripple B


Bass

I think this is my favorite picture of the summer!!! I mean the kids were having the greatest time fishing.... until the fish actually entered the boat. Their faces are priceless.


Me in an over sized hooded sweatshirt holding a bass and Chuck with his eyes closed.




I felt bad for not posting pictures of the bass that I caught a few weekends ago... just wanted to give proof to all the non-believers that I was a bass fisher woman.



Butterflies
I had a chance yesterday to join a friend at the Como Zoo with her cute little girls. They have this amazing butterfly pavilion you walk into and butterflies are everywhere and they land on you and flutter around. It is kind of like this parallel universe where everything is happy and magical and no wrong can take place... until you find the dead squished butterflies that people accidentally stepped on.... it is like a reality check. But I also got to ride the carousel and I got kind of emotional about how pure and innocent little kids are... we should look at the world through their eyes more often.










I bet you thought from this picture that the third B - word was going to be biceps!!! But it's not it's....


BOOK

I started reading this book this week by Michael Pollan and it is changing my life... I think he is a brilliant writer and gives great insight into the food we eat as Americans. Chuck and I have been having long and deep discussions about the chapters that I read. I am going to write more of a summary about it when I am done. But until that time I really recommend it to anyone who is interested in Nutrition and the food that we eat. It is a must read!!!!
