|| Walnut Bread ||

Today, I made walnut bread!

My mom makes amazing walnut bread, so I looked up a regular yeast bread recipe and just added chopped walnuts to it. And it turned out pretty good! I think...

Confession I haven't tried it yet because I made it sort of late and just decided to let it sit until tomorrow morning. But I did get some good photos before I sliced it up and my husband got me a sweet new bread knife! So, it's safe to say I'm excited for tomorrow morning to come.

Also, it's Easter tomorrow, the best day (along with Christmas) to celebrate!

Here's to happy anticipation!

|| The Tastiest ||

I've made my first, a pretty one and now... my tastiest!

Bread.

My friend sent me this recipe, https://artisanbreadinfive.com/authors-and-photographer/ and I've been having a grand time learning how to perfect it!

Happy Wednesday,

|| It's Raining ||

It's raining and it's Wednesday.

I don't know if there's a better reason so make banana muffins.

Also it's December, which means we should be baking all the time anyway.

So here's to holiday happiness and cozy food for the few cold days we get in Carpinteria!

|| The Perfect Honeymoon ||

I'm Jet lagged.

So, I'm up way too early writing this post, but I would have done it all over again for our honeymoon!

I keep saying our honeymoon was "perfect" which isn't a word I use to describe many things.

But it was.

Our first trip together, his first time to Europe, the weather, our first weeks of marriage felt covered and blessed. We spent our time running and eating. We woke up to rainy mornings as well as enjoyed a couple of perfect sunny beach days. I got to learn his life rhymes as he did mine. We get to do that for the rest of our lives, wow!
 
We had a lot of time to rest and reflect. And that's something I'm most thankful for because as we gave ourselves the space to do that, it also paved way for us to dream and cast vision for our future.

God gave us so much opportunity to experience all the best things together. After wedding planning, it was the biggest gift to let time slow down again.

But now we're back and I don't think I've ever had to return to more transition and business but maybe with the two extremes I'll be able to find a middle ground!

For now, let's relive the days of perfection.
