Hi everyone! All is well with us here. Life is so good and I’m thankful for that. Right now we’re snuggled in our bed a bit early and we’re about to watch a movie on our lap top. (Well, actually…we’re chatting about upcoming blog posts – so the movie may delayed a bit. 🙂 But we hope you all have the best, best Memorial Day Weekend!! 3 day weekends are just glorious. We’ll be thinking of you all. XO, M
Today, some Love Announcements:
-In case any of you are on the fence about the water-only cleaning cloths I use, you HAVE to watch this news clip that wanted to PROVE if the cloths work or not. You many be blown away by the results!! 🙂 (Thanks to Lindsay for sending this in!)
-I was so excited that Joanna Goddard posted about South American Palo Santo Sticks recently. I LOVE THEM! They’re sold on little carts like these on the street. I smelled
them during our trip to Ecuador last November and had no idea what they
were, but I knew I wanted them as they smelled soooo amazing. We are
moving to a house soon (!!) and will have an outdoor porch –I can’t wait to have these
sticks smoldering in a can while we lounge outdoors. You can buy some from Amazon here.
of my favorite things is neon signs. So I had to just share this Pie
sign from Four & Twenty Blackbirds, a famous pie shop in Brooklyn.
They now serve “Pie at the Library” at the Brooklyn Public Library! Danny would love a slice of that salted caramel apple. And I would love a neon sign.
-I’ve been wanting to tell you about BK17 Bakery, in South Slope, Brooklyn. Can you believe I’m posting about BREAD? Well, this particular baker is a miracle worker and uses a unique, extended fermentation process that makes the wheat much more digestible. Even people who normally have sensitivities to wheat have had great success with her bread. She uses the best, pesticide-free, local ingredients. She often is available to deliver warm bread to your door in Brooklyn (such a luxury) or you can pick it up at Brooklyn Larder or Nourish Kitchen + Table. Some of
her flavors include: Maple Date Nut Levain, Potato & Rosemary, Buckwheat & Rye, Roasted Sweet Potato
Levain, Chestnut & Fig Stout Levain, Walnut Mongrel, Khorasan Apricot. And is that not the most gorgeous pair of loaves you’ve ever seen??
–This architect lives in Ecuador. I think I need to give him a call. 🙂
-And…it turns out that Danny loves to pick out clothes for me for a birthday or a surprise. It’s actually the cutest thing ever and I just bawled on my first birthday with him to think that he put so much thought into doing something nice. Recently he was looking through J.Crew and had a few things picked out. Here’s one of the outfits. So summery, right!? The Pencil Skirt is on sale right now!
