SNIPPETS/ MAY 14TH - 17TH

I'm challenging myself to take actual pictures (vs just on my phone) throughout the week, as an exercise in seizing the moment. Here are some of my favorite snippets from the week.

1. Beautiful mother's day tulips from my Mama.
2. Our back porch in the morning where we usually have breakfast. I love morning light, the quiet. It's my favorite time of day.
3. Our greens are popping up. Swiss chard.
4. Flowers from the garden in honor of the Bachelorette premier. It's my biggest guilty pleasure. My friend Cortney came over and I lit candles and had wine (which I would normally be drinking). I love Emily and I'm totally rooting for her to meet someone awesome. One can dream, right?
5. This echinacea came up volunteer in the back. I love gardening surprises!
6. I've been sewing during Matilda's naps. This little dress is making its way to Erie, PA.
7. My girl.
8. I made this total chili man meal for Sam, that's also one of my favorites. The cornbread is gluten-free but lemme tell you there is nothing lacking here. I put in Greek yogurt and green onions. Amazing!!

Enjoy your weekend, friends!

  1. I wanna try that cornbread! Not cause it's gluten free but cause of the Greek yogurt and green onions. YUM! I haven't been cooking nearly as much since I've been busier than any human should be. But when school gets out, I will have much more time to just BE.

    I didn't watch Emily's season of the Bachelor, so I don't know much about her. I am of course watching The Bachelorette. I think she's pretty and sweet, but . . . not all that interesting, haha. We'll see what happens. ;)
