Hi guys! Today I’m sharing something a little different. Cooking, and especially baking, are both really big parts of my life and I thought I would start sharing some recipes here and there. And today I’ve got a GOOD one. Last week was Xan’s birthday and most years I bake him a cake. I’ve been baking for most of my life and I love it. But, since we’ve moved into this house the combination of a teeny tiny kitchen and so many projects I haven’t had a chance to do much of it. So, I knew it was happening this year. But, when I asked him he told me he didn’t want one because I’m not eating dairy so I wouldn’t be able to eat it. So sweet! But not happening 😂.
A while ago I realized that whenever we do something on Friday nights the weekend feels so much longer. But, it’s kind of tough because everyone’s tired from working all week and doesn’t really want to plan anything. So, more often than not it ends up being a relax-on-the-couch kind of night.
It seems like summer is the time for parties. With the warm weather and the option to be outside more they’re just inevitable. And I have to say; I don’t hate it!
How often do you have houseguests? We actually have them kind of a lot, and I love it. I love hosting people and having family and friends visit. Even though all our friends and family were a country away we had tons of people visit in San Francisco.
Hi everyone, I hope you’re enjoying your Memorial Day and remembering the reason we get the day off to rest, reflect, and honor. I read a post recently by a veteran friend and it said not to wish people a happy memorial day, because the reason for the day is not actually a happy one.
Hi there! How’s your week going? Things are moving along here. You know, I actually kind of like Wednesdays.
Hi everyone! I’m super excited about today’s post. I started writing it and it ended up being waaaay long and didn’t even have everything I wanted to include so I’ve decided to break it up into a few different posts.
I’m really happy to switch gears a little bit today. One of the focuses of this blog is to talk more about entertaining. I love hosting, but have heard so many people say they don’t think they’re good at it or they could “never do it.”
