Have you ever seen how brussels sprouts grow? They are so beautiful! I recently came across this field of them not too far from us, in Half Moon Bay, where there is so much gorgeous farmland on the sea. It inspired me to come home and make an oldie but goodie, Roasted Brussels Sprouts with golden raisins and turkey kielbasa. Swap out the kielbasa for tofu sausage or onions if you’d like a veggie version of this. You can also just as easily use a cookie sheet. Use olive oil generously and keep that oven high to ensure crispy bits on the edges of the sprouts (the best part!).

It is really neat how brussel sprouts grow. Reblog for the field shot.

Never ceases to amaze me that those dinky little sprouts grow on such beautiful, alien-like stalks.

On Sunday, we hosted brunch and booze with friend Veronica Chan for a special breed of community folks that we saw take independent flight this past year. From starting our own companies, to contracting, to finally settling down with dream jobs, we were surprised (or perhaps, not so much?) to find some common experiences as we tried to piece together why we all chose to strike out on our own.On choosing to be independent, we learned that:
Sustaining passion for full-time roles is critical. It’s important that the values and shifting direction of the brand/company align closely with our own, particularly as the company grows.
CM roles are now just starting to become more senior and influence product and design - we like this. 
We also came up with a pretty interesting list of resources:
Designing for Emotions for content
Design is a Job for project structuring
Conscious Capitalism  for being a good business
Reminder: Design is Still About Words for the link between copy and design
Why User Experience is Immersive and Pervasive for community work as design
Let us know if you’d like to join us next time - tentatively planned for Sunday, March 10th!

Awesome brunch and even awesomer gals.  Looking forward to the next brunch in March — let us know if you’d like to join!
