Oh, hello there. How are you on this fine Saturday morning? I’m just sippin’ my french press coffee and enjoying my toast with raspberry jam. Alone. In my head I’m not supposed to be alone on Saturday mornings. That’s when I make some sort of nice breakfast and the husband and I eat together. But… Continue reading a bit of chitchat.
the husband left the house by 7am today. he came home late last night with work under his arms for the evening hours. when you’re told to fix a problem and save money for the company you work for that’s what you have to do. and i did what i have to do: i made… Continue reading such rich love
it’s thursday night. i’m tired and the husband is sick. we’ve been sitting on the couch together in silence for the last hour. he’s reading through leviticus and i’m reading recipes online. we’re normal, right?
I’m just gonna say that my first Valentine’s Day as married girl was a success. It could have been that he couldn’t wait to give me presents so they were brought out last night. It could be that in the mix of gifts there were REAL PEARL EARRINGS (let the choirs start to sing). It… Continue reading what a lovely holiday
Tomorrow is one of my favorite days. I’m not surrounded by a whole lot of red, white, and pink this year and I’ve not made one heart shaped sugar cookie (making dozens of cookies for two people in a house?! bad, bad, bad.), but it’s still here and I’m still so excited. We’re celebrating our… Continue reading valentine’s day!

When I lost you so many weeks ago, I made myself move on. I reminded myself of all the others who have suffered… Continue reading to my baby
my newest obsession has been making anything that requires yeast and rising time. i will openly admit that i’m an obsessive person and although my obsessions come and go, this one won’t be going anytime soon even after my passion has waned. the husband and i like homemade whole wheat toast and sandwiches too much… Continue reading love me some bread
yesterday i ignored the mud-stained entryway floor, put off folding some more laundry till evening, and picked the simplest thing i could possibly make for dinner which required little to no work: spruced up leftovers. instead of my usual chores i wandered outside for almost two hours. i decided right then that i will be… Continue reading it’s a beautiful world
this morning didn’t start according to plan. the alarm was reset for 20 minutes after we were both supposed to rise. when we managed to finally roll out of bed i scurried downstairs in a rush to quickly make food for the husband’s day in the office and brew a pot of coffee. only i… Continue reading the start to our day
after years of spending every single day under the direction and oversight of my mums, i suddenly found myself at the magical age of 18. it appears magical because you’re encouraged to try spreading your wings a bit, however that may be. some get jobs, some commute to community colleges, some move states away for… Continue reading making this my life
