In our (seemingly endless) search for things that feel good, have a essentially zero potential for bummers, and answer more questions than they ask, we have been lovingly deploying the "BYOG BFD" a.k.a.: The Bring Your Own Glass to the Big Fancy Drink.
Whenever people have been asking us "how's your summer going?" we're always like "it's...weird. But good?". While August always has a little bit of a split personality vibe (wait, didn't summer *just* start but hold up now, is that HALLOWEEN CANDY I spy!?) this August in particular has us feeling of multiple minds about...everything.
The early darkness. The unexpected flurries. The stunning architecture of strength revealed when summer's trees finally slip out of their party clothes and let their guards down. As the season winds down to its deepest primal essences (much like the rich, hearty broths we try and keep bubbling on the stove), so do we.
