As I type this, the temperature is 48 degrees and it’s been raining for hours. So yeah, I think it’s safe to say that soup season has arrived.

(I’d start with the ginger and lemongrass Thai soup. Mmmmmm.) Happy slurping! Read more »
Confession: If my boyfriend broke up with me and my dog died and a doctor told me I was allergic to avocado all in the same day, Robyn’s “Show Me Love” would still put a smile on my face.

The weekend is almost upon us, friends. There’s plenty going on to keep you busy, of course — free barre and yoga, the Rescue Run 5K (puppies!) and even a pop-up tea picnic — but just remember: many of these activities are outdoors, and with the weather forecast as it currently sits (why, Joaquin, whyyyyy), keep an eye on the event websites to see if rain dates go into effect.

Going hiking during a fall weekend is a no-brainer: It doesn’t cost a dime, you get your heart rate up, and, oh, the leaves.
