There was probably something in the air or in the phases of the moon, but last week was a rough one – that’s right, it was the kind of non-stop workweek of sleepless nights and bottomless to-do lists that requires an extra-long weekend to recover from. There are no random holidays this Monday, however, and my work schedule wouldn’t allow me to take time off even if some lesser-known president had decided to invade Tasmania on this day, so I’ve decided the trick for now is psyching myself up to make this week a banner one. Even though my to-do lists are still nagging at me and are longer than ever thanks to the craziness of last week, I’m determined to give my brain a fresh start today, and I decided there was no better way to do this than to sit down at my computer with a warm breakfast this morning. My homemade fruit and oatmeal paled in comparison to the yummy brunch my hubby and I ate at Dough Boys this weekend, but the taste of berries filled me with gratitude that we discovered this lovely bakery/restaurant, which is the tastiest place I’ve found in Los Angeles to start the day off right.
Psst: How are you starting this week off fresh? Be it through breakfast, a new-found work ethic, or a day of playing hookey, I would love to hear about it. Leave a comment. Photo credit: Foodness Gracious
