Happy Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays purely because of the food. The holiday itself has a checkered past that I think we as a nation need to deal with. Instead of celebrating the pilgrims we should be celebrating Indigenous Peoples. The links below are just a few of the places you can donate/spend your time. Hope you enjoy the time off with your family/friends/whomever you choose to celebrate with — xoxo darling, Hayden.

Week Re-Cap

Baked Alaska pop at Constellation Ice Cram.
Since last Wednesday I've been running like a headless chicken. I ran around Denver grabbing a ton of to-go foods so I could take photos for Denver Food Adventures as I won't be in Denver for quite some time, went on my daily walks, wrote four articles and filmed 70 read that right. Basically I haven't sat calmly for a week. I agonized over my articles for three straight days (literally spent 7+ hours a day on 'em) and missed my daily walks on Sunday & Monday purely because I didn't think I had time. But, now I'm in FL and everything is chill again. I've been looking forward to coming home for so long and now I'm here and it feels so good. Please enjoy this photo dump that is incredibly out of order & I'll see y'all next week — xoxo darling, Hayden.
