|(Preview of an upcoming style post)|
This past week has been jam packed with celebratory activities like birthdays and weddings. I've been stressing myself out with insisting on hand crafting my own cards, baking the perfect confections, and ensuring that every detail goes according to plan (I'm not kidding when I say it's one thing after another!). Amidst all the chaos I took a moment to appreciate all the small, seemingly insignificant moments to bring myself back down to earth and remain calm. Looking back, I've realized that the majority of my happy moments involve food...
|Pretty roses at Wisteria Antiques.|
|Adorable fruit tarts!|
|Figuring out how to use my grill while making marinated short ribs and quinoa salad.|
|A variety of quirky items at a local antique store I love.|
|Ribs/fries/corn bread lunch at Ikea.|
|Fresh asparagus that I ended up using in risotto.|
