bon soir from the newark airport. more travel delays means no pug-cuddling tonight (boo!), an early morning return to dc, and e-mail catch up at the airport rather than the comfort of freshly painted chez moi.
on july 4, beau and 2 friends headed to an indie theatre in portland to see food, inc. if you haven't seen it yet, i HIGHLY recommend the film. eye-opening! in the interim, learn 10 simple steps toward more mindful eating including eating at home, support your local farmer's markets, know where your food comes from, buy organic, and more. choose humane eating and meatless mondays.
