I found this letter game called Bananagrams at the local toy store and I (and everyone in my family, friends....) are hooked. Its fast paced, portable and not super competitive. Think Scrabble without the board or point system. I carry it in my bag, so if we are waiting around at a restaurant or having coffee at The Green Sage, I can bust it out and have a game. Azalea plays as well, naming the letters and lining them up. I read somewhere that playing a crossword or wordfind game everyday stimulates your brain and helps prevent memory loss - can't argue with that!
The next find is that fancy water bottle pictured next to the game. Its from Sigg, a Swiss brand thats been making canteens and whatnot for like a hundred years. This is from there Vintage line, perfectly portable (holds maybe 2 cups or so) with a water tight lid. It has this magical feature of being taste neutral, so if you put something stronger in it, that flavor washes right out. Its also very well -made and beautiful. I carry it everywhere like its my elixir of life. I love my new favorite things!
