My focus is getting 1% better everyday. Not everyday will you "feel like" working out, or selecting the healthier choice in food, or sticking to your meal plan. It's the disciplines you create that create the results you desire. Motivation only will go so far, you are never truly motivated, you learn to be diciplined. Get so obsessed with becoming the best, the healthiest version of you you can be💪❤️
Ruby-throated Hummingbird, 7.10.18
I had never even thought about the nesting habits of hummingbirds until I just so happened to stumble upon this one in my backyard. They’re actually pretty crazy - female ruby-throated hummingbirds build their nests out of plant material, cover them with lichen, tie it all together with spider web, and then line it with soft materials (and they do it alone, since the males dip after mating). I was so excited to be able to catch this one with some dandelion down in her beak just before she added it to her nest. I’m hoping that her eggs hatch soon, and that I might be able to see some tiny baby hummingbirds!
The other day I was blessed w/ the opportunity to get paid to photograph 📷the beautiful Bahá'í House of Worship. It had been on my bucket list for awhile! Swipe ➡️

We decided to not travel this fall and instead to replace the furnace and A/C unit at home. #adultingsuck
😑 Pizza and beer made me feel a little better, though. 😬
Here’s a quick lil iPhone shot since I haven’t been posting lately 😪😴

UPDATE (3:01pm): Sold out! We are out of doughnuts for this lovely Thursday. Find us again tomorrow @ 7am at the shop (7:30am at the food truck in DOWNTOWN CHAMPAIGN) to kick off your Friday! Check back soon for menu details! 🐼❤️ .
**NOTE: the time we sell out varies day to day. We do normally close at 2pm, but if we ever happen to have doughnuts still available, like today, we will stay open until we sell out! Some days we do sell out early but will always stay open till 2pm with our full coffee menu available. Every day is so unpredictable, so we never know when we will sell out as changes day to day. As a small batch, made-from-scratch bakery we can only make doughnuts up to a certain point. We never use day old doughnuts and always make fresh batches every morning! New flavor menu daily! 🐼❤️
