Happy Friday! This has been a wonky week; due to Callie's surgery, I stayed home to play nurse for a few days so it feels like time was simultaneously dragging on and flying by. Tonight we're meeting our dear friends Allison & Taylor for dinner at True Food Kitchen. Allison is due any day now, and we can't wait to meet her sweet girl, Ruby! The photo above is of the gorgeous (and beyond delicious) cake we feasted on at a celebration for Ruby last Saturday - isn't it perfect? Tomorrow we're meeting another set of beloved friends, Korena & Ian, at one of our favorite sushi spots in town. Other than that we'll be snuggling with our pups, reading books in the backyard (I am totally loving Picnic in Provence), and whipping up a treat or two in the kitchen. Have a wonderful weekend, and enjoy some links from around the world wide web!
I trend toward minimalism as it is, possibly even obnoxiously so - I tend to get rid of nearly everything, sometimes even before someone is finished using it. Still, this 30-day minimalism challenge piques my interest. What do you think, would you try it?
I loved this post that my friend Briton wrote about moving to Dallas. She just arrived from Boulder last month and she's adjusting to life in Texas. We were introduced by one of my closest friends, Erin, and it's been so much fun spending time together. I loved reading her sentiments on her blog; they reminded me so much of my emotional process when I moved here nearly six years ago. Her wisdom is inspiring!
While at the ranch last weekend, my sister-in-law and I went to Childress Farm to pick fresh peaches (more on that adventure soon!). I watched Ina Garten make fresh peach cake on her show and knew that was exactly how I needed to use my delicious produce.
Does anyone else follow Marnie The Dog on Instagram? She is a 12-year-old Shih Tzu and I'm basically obsessed with every photo (and hilarious caption!) that her owner posts.
