the quick breakfast

Well hello! I simply can’t believe it’s almost the middle of December! How the heck did that happen?! The holidays are in full swing and I made it up to the cottage this weekend to enjoy a quiet couple of days before the endless holiday parties and festive ensue.

Beach Weekend…Here We Go!

It is amazing how long a week can feel having just had a shortened week before. As you you might have guessed from my Monday post, I am READY for a few days away.

Something I am constantly worrying about, in my dreams! {Make This} I am not a big fan of salads, but this salad is a nice twist that is full of flavor. (I love anything with cumin!) Given I will be hitting the farmers market hard on Saturday, I am looking forward to picking up some yummy options to mix in. {Do This} Put my Blackberry away and get my backgammon game on! Love this roll-up board What are you up to?
