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!
We are eating pizza for breakfast!!
Your iced coffee has some serious competition coming its way.
We have been basking in longer days, warmer weather, and plentiful sunshine this week and my winter-weary heart is so thankful.
My husband makes the BEST sandwiches.
The cutest and most festive ice cream coming at you!!
It’s Friday and I’m thankful. I am thankful for the return of sunshine this past week, and for the ability to go outside and enjoy it. Let’s be grateful today.
Can I tell you a story?
Let’s learn a new thing!
Good morning! It is Friday, long-awaited Friday, and I am just wondering how we are already in March?! Ugh, it is going to fast and this is my “slow” season. In a way, it discourages me, but in another sense, it motivates me even more to make each day and each moment count!
On a very cold, rainy day nothing can warm your heart quite like a bountiful breakfast.
