What is it about Spring that makes me want to wear all white? But some recent sunny weather and temperatures in the 70’s this weekend gives me a bit of Spring fever. Something about whites and creams feel fresh and I have been loving a few of these new purchases
In the dead of winter, after a long day, sometimes you want to come home to something warm and comforting. Spaghetti al Limone ticks all those boxes, plus it takes 20 minutes to make! I like using a long dried pasta such as spaghetti, bucatini, linguine, so the sauce really coats each strand.
This year I wanted to incorporate more food and cooking posts, as that is what I am really into these days. Cooking is my therapy, my joy, and my creative outlet. I get excited trying new recipes, sourcing ingredients, getting a new kitchen gadget, experimenting, and honing my tastebuds.
Happy Sunday! I’m currently week-ending in Palm Springs, and that little bit of sunshine has been a warm welcome compared to the “chilly” temperatures California has seen lately. (Sorry East Coast friends!) But for me, this time of year is when California really shines. It is cool in the day, but the sun is out, putting you in a good mood. You can wear a jacket, but a with T-shirt underneath.
Maybe it was the tease of this weekend’s 75 degree weather and sunshine, but I started daydreaming about summer tans, crisp white t-shirts, and faded denim. I am always immediately drawn to creams and whites, as soon as it gets a little warmer. After recently cleaning my closet, it makes it easy to reassess what you have and what pieces you may want to incorporate.
As it is January and it seems that everyone in the world is “kondo-ing” their homes, I wanted to post some of my favorite kitchen essentials. I recently streamlined my equipment and utensils, and compiled my most used items in the kitchen.
This time of year I have the art of ‘hygge’ down to a science, one that includes warm and cozy loungewear. I really love this pajama duo from Madewell at the moment. I like the ease and accidental stylishness of a matching set, replacing a mismatched jumble of pieces from years past.
Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a nice holiday celebrating and welcoming in 2019. I have to say I am usually ready to immediately take down the holiday decorations, but my house feels so festive, I am a little sad to put it all away.
