Just a few words and pictures to let you know what we're currently up to!
I discovered Sarah Kieffer of Vanilla Bean Baking Blog on Instagram, and I'm in love! Or rather, WE are are- Matt has used this recipe book more than me so far! I got her new cookbook, Vanilla Bean Baking Book, and her recipes, stories, and pictures all just take me to my happy place. Plus, everything we have tried has been delicious. A couple weekends ago, we spent hours making cinnamon rolls and strawberry cream cheese danishes. YUM!
We have two bedrooms upstairs in our enclosed attic complete with dormer windows and A-frame ceilings, but for the two years we've lived here, we haven't used them for more than storage- we haven't really needed the space! And the insulation up there is nothing more than old newspapers from the 1930s... so that's an issue. But we're hoping to move up there soon.
We sold our old bed (that I had had since childhood) and got a wrought iron bed frame inspired by @homeiswherethehartis- something simple that will fit in a small space and still allow the maximum amount of light in. It arrived several weeks ago and is still sitting in boxes in the basement, but the dream is becoming more real!!!
Matt often laments that he didn't become a farmer, and I always say that if dies, I'm finding my next husband on farmersonly.com :) For his birthday this year, we got a grow light and SO many seeds. And he is one happy boy.
And last but not least:
