I definitely have a thing for cookbooks. This one might be my new favorite. Here's why... 1. It's GORGEOUS. Stunning photography. 2. It's huge. 352 pages. 200+ recipes. 3. It's more than a cookbook - it's inspiration to eat well.... Continue reading

A few things that were my favorite this month... Drinking Gibraltars in San Francisco. Airplanes. Sure, there are little annoyances about travel - but having a job that requires it really is my favorite. Discovering that Brene Brown has a... Continue reading

Aruba over Christmas sounds so awesome. Hope and I tried to get Austin to agree to a tropical Christmas several times, but he always resisted. My Aunt is going to New Zealand & Australia in the fall!

I grappled with that when I moved...and decided that for now, they still bring me joy. So, I've kept them. Although, I did edit down to 1 copy of each, and donated the rest. As some point, I may scan "my" pages/articles/covers for an album or photo book. Or I might just keep it all for now. I did go through all of my layouts before the move & edited down - I didn't keep anything that I had done SOLELY for an assignment.
