Sunset walking — it’s my best habit.

Other things I’ve enjoyed this week:
This conversation with Lena on GIRLS and handling criticism (love her).
Following along with Lily as she makes her way through Vietnam.
This post on relationships is both poignant and hilarious. I read it once a weekish.
Inspiration from Max, Tec, and Parker.
Spinach smoothies: 2 cups spinach, 1 frozen banana, a handful of raspberries, almond milk.
Andrew & Carissa’s breathtaking photos of Iceland, as Blake and I gear up for a trip there this Spring!
