What I’m Digging
Happy Friday, friends! Here’s wishing all of you in the northeast safe travels, journeys, or simply trips across the street as you head into what looks to be a wicked bad (can I say that, if I’m not from there?) nor’easter. Looks like it’ll be in the 50’s around here, with sunshine in the forecast for tomorrow. I see another hike in the forest in my very near future!
Any of you regular readers know that Glenn is my man behind the curtain. We discuss and deliberate and decide everything together. To read more about what makes us tick, and thrive, as a couple, check out my February post in Verve.
I’ve also got a Small Measures post up today on Design Sponge. I’m sharing Nicole‘s heavenly recipe for “Love” tea, alongside a recipe for Lavender Truffles. Treat yo’self!
In other news, here’s a smattering of this’s and that’s that caught my attention this week:
*A farm-to-table dinner that takes over downtown!
*How to stack firewood, à la Moonrise Kingdom.
*Great information on naturally healing children’s teeth.
*Considering I have 10 potted plants in the bathroom alone, I totally concur.
*10 uses for lemons in the home.
*I love a tree planter.
*Marisa’s time-honored tips for making marmalade.
*Oh, the pretty. I do so love the pretty.
*Need a cure? Head to the kitchen!
*Two of my favorite flavors, in tiny cake form (p.s. it’s gluten-free!).
Along with that forest stroll, I’m thinking of making some curd or marmalade (or maybe I’ll go wild and make both!) from the box of gorgeous, just-picked citrus my ever-generous in-laws sent us from Florida. My friend R. Brooke Priddy of Ship to Shore, who made my (red!) wedding dress back in 2007, is having a grand-opening in her new location tomorrow that promises to be lots of fun, too.
Wherever you go this weekend, whatever you do, and whomever you do it with, may it be grand!
I post a photo of Huxley here each Friday because, truly, he’s what his Papa and I dig the most.
