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 beπŸ’ͺ❀️

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 πŸ“·the beautiful BahΓ‘'Γ­ House of Worship. It had been on my bucket list for awhile! Swipe ➑️

We decided to not travel this fall and instead to replace the furnace and A/C unit at home. #adultingsuck πŸ˜‘ Pizza and beer made me feel a little better, though. 😬

This Monday I embark on an epic road trip to document Route 66 with @savingplaces. I grew up in Collinsville, Illinois. (As did Michael Stipe, we had the same art teacher, but I digress. ) Route 66 runs right through Collinsville. It’s no surprise that I love architecture, so you bet that I am excited to document the buildings, and people that built their lives on the Mother Road. Before you get to STL, you pass this beautiful Majestic Theater in East St. Louis. It was built in 1928 in a Spanish Gothic style and became a national historic landmark in 1985. The same year I was born, and the same year Route 66 was decommissioned. Did you know St. Louis was once the 4th largest city in the country? It is still a rad place to be and the beer capital of the world. (Shout out to fellow preservationist @michaelrallen for perfectly parking his car.) . . . . . #preserve66 #savingplaces #archi_ologie #igbostontravelers #tlpicks #enjoyillinois #stlgram #stlouisgram #explorestlouis #mightymidwest #route66 #roadtrippers #soloparking #wheretofindme #takemethere #asundaycarpic #preservation #rustbelttakeover #mytinyatlas #getyourkicksonroute66 #drivetastefully #retrocars @rustbeltyp @bellevillenewsd @natgeo

James Wesley Beall House in Alton’s historic Middletown District was built circa 1895! The house was home to J.W. Beall, president of Beall Tool and Metal Products Company. Have you ever taken a driving tour of Alton’s historic districts? β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ #ExploreGreatRivers #AltonIL #AltonIllinois #Middletown #MiddletownDistrict #EnjoyIllinois #IllinoisProud #illinoisbicentennial

In 1900, shortly before they relocated to the East Coast, Samuel and Matilda Nickerson made a substantial donation to the Art Institute of Chicago, which had been established just over twenty years before. This gift received the attention of the press at the time with the Chicago Daily Tribune noting, β€œThe collection of crystals, jades, lacquers, and porcelains…is said to be the only one of its kind in the world in a public institution, except that in the British Museum.” #tbt @artinstitutechi #artinstitute #artmuseum #chicagohistory #chicago #chicagomuseum #chicagomuseums #artcollection #history #arthistory #enjoyillinois

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.

New flavor menu daily! 🐼❀️ . β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€” Don't forget to tag us in your photos:Β @PandaDoughnutCU Β & Β #PandamoniumDoughnuts .
