Broiled Grapefruit with Honey and Yogurt

Warm caramelized broiled grapefruit is served with a dollop of Greek yogurt and a drizzle of honey, that tastes like dessert for breakfast.

Do you ever wonder, if you were given a second shot at life, what career you might pursue instead? What you might study? What passion you might follow?

I’ve been watching a lot of the new Netflix documentary series Abstract: The Art of Design lately, and it’s been inspiring. My favourite episodes have been Paula Scher on Graphic Design and Bjarke Ingels on Architecture. Have you watched it yet?

In my alternateĀ life, I would pursue design. As a kid, I doodled floor plans of houses, which often accompanied the fictional stories I wrote. I loved planning the entirety of a story: designing the home where the characters lived and even plotting their family tree.

As an adolescent, I was fascinated with web design and graphics. I taught myself basic HTML coding and loved messing around on Photoshop, playing with fonts, making logos, and editing photographs. (Nerd alert!)

Of course, this blog is an outlet for my passion for art and design, but it’s interesting to wonder what an alternate life might look like in a graphic design or architecture career.

What alternate career would you pursue in another life?

… and these thoughts have literally nothing to do with grapefruit! Ha! BossĀ ladies need quick breakfasts in the form of broiled grapefruit….?! šŸ˜‰
