If you’re new to the blog, you might not know this… I am an avid reader. I absolutely LOVE the mental escape of a really good piece of fiction. A few years ago, I switch to reading primarily on my Kindle Paperwhite and I love it. I made this change for a few reasons, but mostly because of ease of use, not having to store books, and because I can get FREE e-books from the library! After sharing what I’ve read so far this year, I got a lot of direct messages about how to check out e-books from the library. It’s really easy to set up and a total game changer! I swear, I read so much more now than I ever did before.Continue reading “A Step-By-Step Guide to Check Out E-Books From the Library”
I’ve always been someone that finds comfort in reading, especially a good escapist novel. I’ve been wrestling with feelings of needing to be productive with all this time at home… but zero energy to actually execute all the projects I have in mind. If anything, all I want to do is read and mentally escape, even just for a little bit. In case you’re the same way and need some new book recommendations, here’s a list of everything I’ve read so far in 2020! And if you want to skip ahead to shopping for books, I set up an Amazon storefront for my 2020 reading list.Continue reading “Everything I’ve Read So Far in 2020 (Part 1)”
With the kitchen renovation and Whole30 behind us, I am SO excited to get back into cooking exciting, elaborate meals. Sometime last summer, I really started getting into cookbooks. They feel like an art form, to be honest. The photos are always stunning and I love pouring over them, expanding my cooking repertoire. A few cookbooks have really risen to the top for me though. So today I wanted to share 5 of the best cookbooks that I truly think everyone should own!Continue reading “5 Cookbooks Everyone Should Own”
If there is one activity that I prioritize over many others, it’s reading. I read for at least 30 minutes before bed every night as part of my sleep routine, but it’s also something I’ve loved doing since I was a kid. In 2019, I used Good Reads to help me keep track of what I wanted to read, what I had read, and my reading goal for the year… and I surpassed my goal! Since I’m always asked for book recommendations on Instagram, I thought now is the perfect time to share everything I read in 2019… especially if you’re lucky enough to be taking some time off during the holidays.Continue reading “Everything I Read in 2019”

With our wedding a little less than 9 months away (!!!!), I need all of the inspiration I can get. I’ve poured over Pinterest, bought all of the magazines, but there’s something still so special about sitting down with coffee and a physical book (especially on a slow Saturday morning). Sometimes you just have to go offline, huh. Artisan Books was kind enough to send over a copy of the new Modern Wedding book by Kelsey McKinnon and I’ve been obsessed with it ever since. And luckily for one reader, I teamed up with Artisan Books and Le Creuset for an exciting giveaway!Continue reading “Modern Wedding + Le Creuset Giveaway (CLOSED)”
While we’re not exactly newlyweds yet, Sean and I have been having so much fun talking about our future married life… especially when the kitchen renovation is finished. I cannot wait to get back to cooking and doing all the fun ‘nesting’ type activities that I feel compelled to do. Is it weird that all I want to do is roast chicken and daydream about further building our life together? When Chronicle Books reached out to share Caroline Chambers‘ first book Just Married, I was really excited to give it a try and change up our meals. I love how the cookbook is all about creating traditions within your relationship and finding meaning around the table. With 125 recipes spanning breakfast, brunch, soups, party drinks, and more, this book is a modern and practical resources for couples.
