oh hey there! remember me? that girl who promises herself, every week, that she'll post everyday and then, well, doesn't? oh yeah, that's me. but this week will be different, right? here's hoping. the saddest part about my blog's neglect is that I've really enjoyed my life lately, not that I don't usually, but I'm just a little bummed I won't have it to keepsake and review later. but we're gonna try and catch this place up today with a little instagram round up, what do you say?
one :: soda bread from my river cottage every day cookbook. it's the easiest thing when you need a quick bread basket to go with whatever pasta you're craving that evening. which has been always around these parts.
two :: these beautiful spoons my sweet sister gave me for christmas. we'll talk more on these later!
three :: a very cozy new year's eve in with a cup of herbal tea and the softest sweatpants ever!
four :: a memento of one very exciting trip to the fresh market in my hometown. it's where I finally got the go ahead for a more organic lifestyle from my very meat-and-potatoes husband.
five :: a snap from our morning swampwalk, which I talked all about last week!
six :: that inevitable moment when you board a plane back to reality, but not before one, final red cup!
seven :: this adorable little dishtowel that could not be more appropriate in describing mitch's and my life together for the next eight years.
eight :: the sun rising over our apartment on one of the few mornings I actually woke up to hit the gym. that view, though.
nine :: before a 'girls night' a week or so ago, I baked the chocolate zucchini cake from the kinfolk cookbook and it was so fudgey and delicious. and wouldn't you say it also counts as a serving of vegetables? I mean there are zucchinis in there.
ten :: my first loaf of sourdough bread. after ten days of nursing that starter and a 24-hour rise/prove period, that loaf sure does make me proud.
and so it's monday again! and I hope yours is a very happy one. mine will be chock full of little life laundry-like things as mitch takes his first set of block exams. it's crazy to me that we're already finished with the first block of fourth semester. that means we've this island home for more than a year! it feels so weird to be counting down rather than up.
if you care to do a little catching up yourself, feel free to leave it in the comments!
