I love fall! I say it every year and the feelings never change. Growing up in New England the change of season brings so much excitement for the fall fashion, the comfort foods, baked goods, and cozy experiences. I put together a list of things that I plan to do this season and some things that you will enjoy too!
I remember jump roping as a kid was one of my favorite activities. In middle school, I learned how to double dutch which became one of my favorite activities to participate in during breaks. Now as an adult I have come back to it and realized that it honestly is a really good workout. It gets the whole body moving and heart racing.
I’ve been taking a lot of time to reflect on the little things that have brought me many moments of happiness. I enjoyed being able to slow down for a bit to really appreciate the privileges that I often take for granted. It is sometimes the simplest moments that bring you a sense of gratitude and content. Today, I share with you a few moments which have brought me pure joy over the last few months at home and still do to this day.
For many couples, over the last few months have been a new test for their relationship. For some of you who are like me, not living with your boyfriend (or partner) it may have begun to feel as though we are in a long-distance relationship, so keeping connected could’ve been a new challenge as going out was less frequent. While others who do live with their significant other may have learned new things that they hadn’t before. Today Mara talks to us about her experience of going from a LDR to quarantining with her boyfriend over the last four months.
It has been two years since Mara and I walked across the stage to receive our diploma! We congratulate anyone who has recently graduated from college, grad programs, and even high school during this time!! We know that we were lucky to experience the excitement of commencement and wanted to share part of our experience with you as well as our thoughts now that we have been graduated for a few years.
Matcha lovers, please raise your hand 🙋. Since the trend of Dalgona coffee (whipped coffee) took off, I have been seeing so many different whipped drink variations on social media.
Learning to enjoy cooking has come with great rewards. I love how food has the ability to bring people together or even change moods from hangry to happy.
This was the first year in a very long time that I have been able to spend Mother’s Day with both my Grandmother and Mother. It was such a special day to celebrate the women who shaped my values and morals. Who give me cooking lessons and teach me new skills. Who always have words of encouragement and advice. They move through life with strength and grace that is admirable.
A few weeks ago I introduced the new series Bestie Talk to you! Today Mara and I are sharing a bit more about our friendship from our first encounter, to how our friendship has developed.
The cooking challenge in my house has continued. Over the last few weeks, we’ve tried some more really delicious recipes that have continued to diversify our palates. Dinner is the most important time of the day for my family since it brings us all together at the end of the day to bond over good food.
