This week's guest curator: Kiara Ruth

About Kiara:
 I am boymom navigating this thing called "motherhood" 

Morning: After getting Miles ready for school, I go to a coffee shop to get some work done. 

If I am staying local, Sola Coffee, Heirloom (above) or Fount Coffee + Kitchen are my top choices. 

Lunch: CavaI really love that you can build your own bowl. They always have fresh ingredients and yummy options to choose from.  It's quick and easy.

Late afternoon: My go-to is always to find something local and fun my son can do after school.

Often that's a playdate at North Hills green area, a visit to a bookstore like Read With Me Raleigh or going to a park like Pullen Park or Laurel Hills/Sassafras Park

Dinner: Either prepare dinner or head to one of my family's favorite places to eat, like Brewery Bhavana (Seriously, so good).

<< Evening: After my son is in bed there's time for my husband and I. 

When there is time, we always like to stop by local restaurants such as Jolie (new downtown restaurant) for cocktails and drinks.
