August came and went in a whirlwind. It’s technically still summer, but it feels like August is all about school. My high schoolers had weeks of school-related camps before the first day ever began. We shopped for shoes and supplies. We figured out what lunches would look like this year. We set our alarms earlier. And we did it. We are back to school. Along the way, I discovered a few new things that have quickly become favorites!Read More
I laughed when I took the photo for this post. I laughed when I edited the photo. And I am laughing now looking at the photo at the top of this post. Someone was watching me when I took it, and I can only imagine what she must have thought I was up to. Are you wondering what’s going on? Are you laughing?Read More
If I told you the year was half-way over, how would you feel? Inspired? Excited? Depressed? All of the above? It’s true. We have crested the hill of 2019, and while it is still the smack middle of summer, you know the downhill snowball of the second half of the year is fast-approaching….Read More
The fact that May is behind us feels like a victory. I always describe May as December without a holiday. The madness is real, and every year I gear up, hunker down, and just keep taking it one day at a time until it is over….Read More
Goodbye, Winter! Hello, Spring!
It is warm. It is sunny. And it is time for a new batch of favorite things, this time from the month of April. Most of these things are inspired by things I love about this season, and a few of them come from the reality of life…which is always the best place to find inspiration!Read More
February is such a great month. Winter. Groundhog Day. Valentine’s Day. And four very symmetrical weeks.
February is also the fastest month, and this year it felt particularly quick. Granted, I had a lot going on, but I felt like the pages of my calendar just flew straight from January to March. Whoosh…
Amidst the flurry of pink hearts and tiny cakes, I did manage to compile a few of my favorites from this month.
Let’s get started!Read More
The last time I wrote a My Favorites post was back in July, when the Ina In A Year project was just a glimmer of an idea and my life had not turned into a hurricane of cooking. Ah, those were the days.
I have missed writing these posts! I constantly find new things (or rediscover old things) that I want to share with you, and so I am bringing them back in 2019. With one small change. These posts, at least in the short run, will not be video posts. I lack the margin to film, edit, and upload video right now. I know this will change, and when it does, I will explore that as an option.
For now, I am going to write and link about my monthly favorites here on the blog. AND, I will also do a Story on Instagram and save it as a highlight so that you can see these items in a bit more detail. Cool? Cool.
