Happy, happy Friday! I have been anticipating this weekend for ages because it is the first weekend in quite some time that Mr. Pedantic and I will be spending with just each other. We do have a few tiny commitments here and there, but overall I will have him to myself.
January is at an end, and I have to say that it was rather splendid. I had purposed in my mind to intentionally enjoy the month that I have always met with such dread in previous years, and, to my delight, I did. Intentions really do have great bearing upon results.
February, on the other hand, was kicked off with a rather depressing load of tax prep which is likely my most hated task. While self-employment has its glamour, the downsides certainly make themselves known come tax time. Bleh. I need chocolate.
Speaking of which, have you had these dark chocolate orange sticks? They are so good if you keep them in the freezer. I love having them alongside my morning tea.
This guide on buying olive oil was spot on. My favorite every day olive oil is Trader Joe's Organic Unfiltered Greek Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
Have you made this sparkling blood orange chai yet? If not, this weekend is the perfect excuse!
Our tea stock was dwindling, so Mr. Pedantic and I put in a big order to Fortnum and Mason this past week. Their tea is our favorite. We especially love Countess Grey and Breakfast Blend. Tea is my daily vice.
I have an extra special surprise coming to you on Monday, followed by ALL of the Valentine's Day recipes! I cannot wait!
Happy, happy weekend!
Put in charge of the vegetable side dish this Christmas and really wanting to offer up something besides corn casserole or green beans? I feel you.
How is it that we are here again? The end of another week. The time tide has pushed us even closer to the shores of Christmas and I feel a little nauseas to be honest.
Feel free to scream with joy because I have THE BEST hot cocoa of your life right here.
Weeks of anticipation, scheming and dreaming come to fruition today and I am so excited to share this with you!
Happy Friday!! This week has been a whirlwind of frosted windshields, mailing Christmas cards, and our first snow of the season. Yep, we are knee-deep in December and I could not be happier.
Sweet and salty holiday happiness coming at you!!
Mr. Pedantic and I spent last weekend in New York City admiring lights, fulfilling Hallmark-inspired dreams, and eating…lots of eating.
It all started with a bag of popcorn.
Let’s make the easiest of hot breakfasts!!
