The last few days have been gorgeously sunny and warm in North Carolina. At first I wasn’t sure how I felt about the warm weather in the middle of February, but as much as I fear for the melting planet, I do find joy in the sunshine unexpected warmer temperatures. I hope you have time…

dark chocolate pecan oatmeal cookies

I found the perfect chocolate chip cookie. Dark chocolate pecan oatmeal cookies. This is not a drill. Out of all of the baked goods, cookies are my favorite to make (as you could probably guess from the name of this blog). They are quick to make, small enough to sample, and a great base for…

Here we are. It is Friday again – the first one of February. It seems like as each week passes, more and more news comes out that we never saw coming. It seems silly not to bring it up, but I do think we need cheerful things to brighten the days that could otherwise slowly…

february goals

I’m not sure how, but January felt like it both zoomed by and also lasted forever. While I didn’t cross off every goal on my January goals, I’m really proud of the goals I did accomplish in January. We accomplished a lot of tasks that weren’t even on the January to-do list (but I now wish…
