Valentine’s Day is in one week! Eek I’m so excited! It’s funny, I used to really dislike Valentine’s Day. I always thought it was a bit cheesy to be honest, but not anymore! I don’t know what changed (perhaps I’m a bit cheesy now… lol) but these days I get really into it. We still don’t usually go out, but we often cook a nice meal at home and do a few other fun things leading up to it with Emmylou – like baking heart shaped cookies!
This weekend it snowed. And snowed, and snowed, and it’s STILL snowing… so naturally, I spent Sunday afternoon making soup. I love making tomato soup. It reminds me of winter days during my childhood, siting in my Grandmother’s kitchen and slurping warm bowls of Campbell’s, most often with a grilled cheese on the side.
So Zach always says he is a ‘traditionalist’ when it comes to grilled cheese and completely overreacts when I try something outside-the-box (like adding a slice of tomato….). We eat grilled cheese probably more often than we should because it’s delicious and so easy, but it can get a bit old if your sticking to the same old cheddar, bread, butter format.
Love is in the air…. well I don’t know if that’s true, but this pale pink sweater has me dreaming about a certain upcoming holiday, and scheming about what heart shaped foods I can make between now and then…
I’ve been wanting to do a post with a few details about myself for a while now because I always enjoy reading this type of post from other bloggers, especially the ones I follow regularly. BUT I have no idea what to share, so this might be somewhat random!
Happy Monday everyone! To brighten your day I have a sunny, citrusy treat for you – perfect for this cloudy, snowy January week we have in store…
I had a really nice weekend and am feeling recharged this morning (also due to several cups of coffee I’m sure…). On Saturday I did a couple of outfit shoots and we had perfect weather for it, for once.
It’s mid-January, the month I’ve heard so many people say is their LEAST favorite time of the year, there’s tons of snow on the ground, it’s cold, the excitement of the holidays is over… With all this in mind I wanted to put together a little winter inspiration to get you through the next few months. The Danish concept of hygge (which basically means coziness) is part of the reason I’ve come to love winter, and especially these slow, lazy months between New Years and Spring.
