The Best Way to Journal for the Busy Soul

Life is busy. I love to write about things. I can express myself so much easier in written word. I find journaling (and blogging) to be a positive stress reliever for me. Although I love writing and it’s therapeutic for me, I generally don’t have time to write pages of my thoughts down. I love…

Cozier than Cozy

I have never been to England, but after reading this book I am anxious to go. And on my trip I want to visit an adorable little cottage nestled in the woods, with smoke coming out of the chimney, a pebble pathway leading to the front door, and most importantly, delicious smells wafting from the…

A Hygge

You know that perfect space you envision? For me it has a fire place, with logs ablaze. I would have the perfect cup of hot chocolate in hand, overflowing with marshmallows. I would be sitting in the most comfortable chair, I would have my sweet pup curled on the rug in front of the fire…

My Day-to-Day

Recently I was looking at an old blog I used to contribute to (Tidbits from Twenty Somethings), some of the posts I read included posts about photo-a-day challenges I completed with friends. I was realizing how fun it is to look back at months where I took a photo every day. My memory is jogged…

Adorable Animal Groups

A cloud of bats, a band of coyotes, a party of jays, who knew? A Charm of Goldfinches and Other Wild Gatherings by Matt Sewell was an informative and gorgeously illustrated book about animal groups. This book is full of Jeapardy-type facts about animal groups but the descriptions are kept to a page and its…

The Versatile Sweet Potato

After flipping through Sweet Potatoes: Roasted, Loaded, Fried, and Made into Pie I realize just how adaptable this root vegetable is. I love how organized the book is, dividing recipes up into categories. And the photographs are beautiful. Not every recipe has a photo but the ones that are there made my mouth water. I…
