There are moments each day, where I stop and acknowledge my inner happiness - no matter what the day has brought me, and no matter where I am heading. I call these times - 'moments of content' (and yes, these... Continue reading

I finally got around to properly framing these lovely prints by the amazing Geninne Zlatkis, (rather than having them sit in the rather make-shift Ikea frame they were sadly inhabiting before.) Geninne is such a talented artist, with a really... Continue reading

My thirty minute commute on the Metro to and from work in the city - well, its not my prized time of the day. The Metro makes me motion sick, and it is often super duper crowded. Although I largely... Continue reading

Here is a confession: Most of the time, I see my blog as a great way to motivate myself to be creative - a way to get off my butt, cook something, craft something, think something, and then showcase it... Continue reading

While I am at work, kitty sits here, on the brown couch, propped against the green pillows, in the warmest and sunniest spot in the apartment. Everyday, he sits here - all day. Then, at night, he sits instead on... Continue reading

A vanilla-orange cupcake. This was the first time I split open and scraped a vanilla bean, and boy was that fragrantly-yum! And, since its only a few weeks until my one year blog anniversary, I will blow out the imaginary... Continue reading

"The hyacinth is blooming!" I exclaimed upon waking this morning. So quickly, too, as we just planted this one on Friday. I urged Jesse to stick his nose in the pink blossoms and breathe. Such a sweet scent. I think... Continue reading

Last night we stopped by the organic food store and purchased a hyacinth bulb to bring spring into the living room. We also made Thai Shrimp with Soba Noodles, from this month's issue of Food & Wine. I loved the... Continue reading

With the wind in my hair and the fresh breeze running by. Oh how I cannot wait to take those bikes out of the closet and get back on the wild and crazy open road! (or, at least, that safe... Continue reading

I made these pear-raspberry heart tarts (courtesy of Martha Stewart), and I love 'em! Every few months, my musically inclined (and talented) fiance plays guitar and sings classic rock and 90's tunes at the Hyatt Bar in Rosslyn, Virginia. He... Continue reading

When decorating your home, particularly the living room area, books are most often a must-do, must-have commodity. To connote knowledge and class, of course! If not to simply fill space with colorful binding. So, why not mix things up a... Continue reading

Whether it is a snowy weekday (such as today), or a sunny and breezy Saturday, there is always an occasion to cook something special, try something new in the kitchen. Where better to find that next recipe, I muse, but... Continue reading

On a day where the two feet of snow has turned to ice on the roads and slush on the sidewalk, and the sky only foreshadows more, why not take a walk to your local butcher or favorite gourmet meat... Continue reading

All night on Friday and all day yesterday, it snowed and snowed here in the mid-Atlantic region. It kept falling and sticking, sticking and falling, no stopping the "snowpocalypse" as it has been termed, even by the President to the... Continue reading

We just returned from vacation in Kauai. So lovely that was! From the ocean, to the mountains, to the colors of the jungle-like flora. The fresh organic exotic fruit to the warm, breezy air. I swear if you lived there,... Continue reading
