How Sweet it Is

We went to Salt this morning for breakfast and had Guru Donuts and lattes. Sweet.

Today is Lina’s last day in Boise before she goes back to Chicago and so we just ran around doing last minute things like mailing her Christmas haul so she doesn’t have to carry it back on the airplane and train rides home.

We also felt the need to carb load. Apparently donuts for breakfast leads logically to Mac-n-cheese for lunch.

After lunch we stopped into Bricolage and talked with Chelsea Snow who has some great plans for the New Year for local artists and makers. Pay attention! 2013 was a stellar year for Boise, but I can see that 2014 is shaping up to be even SWEETER!

On the way home we stopped at the new mosaic collaboration Anna Webb and Reham Aarti have just finished. It’s a roundabout next to the Boise Depot:

I think there’s something really special about a city that not only has new food and art and craft and public art ventures popping up all the time, but whose chefs and artists and makers and public artists are all accessible, real people. Maybe it’s a Boise thing. Whatever, it’s the sweetest.

Now back to my sweet daughter for our last evening before she heads home…

Looks like she may have over done it on the sugar today.

Whatever, she’s the sweetest.
