baking: in my circle of friends it seems that I often get put on dessert duty, which I’m 100% happy about. My recent faves are brownies (with ice cream), my Nana’s banana bread muffins, and trifles (which I guess aren’t technically baked).

listening: to some amazing podcasts. I’ve been trying to be more intentional about single-tasking lately, but I love to get a podcast in while I’m walking Chloe or hanging out at the house. My current favorites are The Scrap Gals, Young House Love Has A Podcast, Better Cast Saul, Tell ’em Steve Dave, and Pocket Talk. Yes, this is me pairing down…

loving: my new camera. There is just something about having new gear that brings out all the creativity and ideas. Also, doing Week in the Life got me carrying it around and encouraged me to start really digging into the new features. I have a lot more to learn as far as the technology goes (my previous camera is 8 years old!) but learning is part of the fun.

planting: nothing yet. The weather in Missouri has been quite ridiculous the past week so I haven’t been able to get outside much. I’m really glad I didn’t do any planting prior to this rain because the seedlings would all be drowned or severely displaced in the pond, I mean garden. Keep an eye out though because I’ll be posting more about our garden soon enough.

remembering: that this time a year ago we were moving into our house! It’s hard to believe that we’ve been here this long. I was a bit worried when we bought the house that I’d get bored of the layout/decor like I had with previous apartments, but this is definitely not the case and I’m so happy about it.


Today I’m joining Anne, at In Residence, for a ‘Currently’ linkup that she hosts on the first Wednesday of every month. Be sure to pop over and see what everyone else is up to!
