Milan at sunset. Ciao Milano! #italy #italia #milan #milano
I just made these and they are a fantastic snack! They didn’t turn out very pretty and round like in this picture - maybe that’s the fault of the almond butter that I substituted for peanut butter or possibly my altitude? Whatever they look like, they taste great and they are quick and easy to whip up! (via Pinterest)

Onward with the Japanese theme for the day: I’ve never considered yoga as a therapy method but I can see how it would be extremely beneficial.

ELLE Japan, September 2013 photographed by Junji Hata
I’m clearly on a Japanese-bender today so I’m just going to go with it!
Photographer Tim Wilkinson caught my eye with the vivid color and exotic locations he captures. I came across one of his photos on pinterest and eventually tracked down the original source. I can’t find the pinterest picture on his blog but you can see it here. Take a look at this photographer’s blog and then let me know when you want to go to Japan because I’m ready to start packing my bags! (via Kobe Fireworks 2011)
