A Few More Notes on Rest

August 2, 2016

“The cure for anything is salt water: sweat, tears, or the sea.” Isak Dinesen Currently I’m enjoying the salty air, drinking it straight and benefiting from the life-giving smell of the ocean. Inspiration comes in waves, just like this muse laid out before me, and I’m thankful that in the past 32 years of life […]

[via] Let’s try this again, shall we? I was in the middle of a long and detailed post about my new favorite show, Poldark, last night when BAM! the internet up and quit and I was too tired to try again. So I went to bed instead of doing my work…one of the best things […]

Watermelon Granita

July 20, 2016

I’m happy to report that as of Tuesday afternoon I am in the middle of the 5th season of Downton Abbey. Yes, that’s right – I’ve watched an insane number of hours of a British period drama and I STILL just can’t quit it. I can’t! I won’t!   But I’m ready(ish) to return to […]

Balsamic Herb Compound Butter

July 18, 2016

I have this thing for ice cub trays.   See, when I was growing up it was a daily duty (sometimes more than once a day) to empty and refill the ice cube trays. I would pride myself on the careful filled and perfectly portioned ice cubes, which were honestly probably not as great as […]

Le sigh. Another sick babe in our house! My poor little nugget has been waking up the past couple nights with a fever, even though he acts normal during the day, and there just truly is nothing sadder than a sick baby. We have family in town this weekend and I’m hoping that this is […]
