Building a Better Breakfast

I know I don’t have to tell you breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Personally, I love breakfast because I love breakfast food. Hot coffee with whole cream, toasty buttered waffles, and perfectly scrambled eggs are just a few of my favorite things.

The ritual of it.

The circadian rhythm is that inner clock that knows to get up when the sun rises and to get sleepy when it sets. Our modern culture with black out curtains and bright electronics late at night can confuse our circadian rhythms and leave our bodies a little confused about when we are supposed to do what.

How to Find Your Chaco Size

How to Find Your Chaco Size

Chacos are well known for their adjustable straps and bright colors. The sandals only come in whole sizes, leading to some confusion for those that typically wear a half size. Typically the advice is, if you wear a half size to go down to the next whole size for Chacos. For many people that simple rule of sizing will get them in the right Chaco size.
