[Image Description: The background is blurry with two windows and a dark chair between them. There is a dark wooden table in the back of the picture there are salt and pepper shakers in glass jars. In the forefront there is a clear picture of the items on the table. On the left-front side of the table are a stack of papers with words on the top page, with a black pen on top of the stack. To the right of the papers there is a silver Mac laptop with a grey apple that has a chunk missing that is upside down on the lid. Slightly in front of the laptop is a black coffee cup with handle with animated steam coming out of the cup.]
