get excited

12 Mar

First guest post this Monday!  It’s an incredibly moving story, and I’m so honored for the opportunity to share it.  Trust me, you don’t want to miss it!

some things to love about saturday

12 Mar

1.  I’m normally pretty good about not thinking about the things we can’t afford.  But every now and then, John and I get fixated on something totally extravagant and non-essential.  Today, it is Frye boots, and I can’t help but think back fondly on Abby and Colin’s lovely April wedding, which took place on her family’s farm in the middle of Texas.  I was the only girl there not in boots.  Getting married in boots…I love it!

They’re both chefs.  The food was out of this world!  And they sent us home with individual skillets and recipes and a leftover bottle of champagne.

2.  I’m sitting propped up bed in Boston, taking care of some house-keeping items while John works at the desk a few feet away.  We’re listening to some Iron & Wine, and I’m currently loving The Trapeze Swinger as a study song.

3.  I wish I had taken a picture of breakfast–I used so many colors!  John just made me “mystery tea.”  I’m guessing Afternoon Earl Grey, which I brought back from London a few years ago, and I have no idea how it’s still good.

4.  It’s 50 degrees and sunny in JP, perfect weather for a run around the arboretum…because, as of this week, I can go running!

5.  I want to channel this Hermione quote from the most recent HP movie, in response to Harry telling her that she’s brilliant: “Actually I’m highly logical, which allows me to look past extraneous detail and perceive clearly that which others overlook.”
