blueberry muffin granola greek yogurt breakfast bowl



Things like how incredibly happy and grateful I am that we switched the clocks forward Sunday. And like how much hair spray I sprayed in my hair to get some curls to last for all but an hour. And umm, hello these Blueberry Muffin Granola Greek Yogurt Breakfast Bowls!!!
Let’s start with daylight savings time. Ahh!! I am SOO happy that I now have an added hour of sunlight. For me personally, this makes my work day so much easier. For the last four to five months I have been in a constant state of GO, GO, GO when it comes to shooting recipes for the blog, the book and other projects. When the sun sets at four it’s kind of my worst nightmare. Now that it’s not going behind the mountains until just after six I feel like I can breathe a little throughout my day, maybe stop and take a sip of tea and like go to the bathroom… simple pleasures. My day is not so rush, rush, hurry, hurry, the sun is setting.
