Happy Holidays, From Me to You

As of tonight I’ll be home sweet home in Pittsburgh, shacked up for the holidays! I only manage to get back and visit once a year, so it’s never really a break with all of the running around to meet up with different friends and family. But after the fact I always feel like I’ve been rejuvenated in a way I didn’t even knew I needed. So with that I bid you a fond farewell for the next week because this girl is taking a much needed blog break. I wish you all the best of the season and the happiest of holidays! xo


Family Cookbook

I’m all over this idea of gifting a family cookbook. All over it. Anjali gave hers out as favors at her wedding, but I’m picturing a book full of my family’s favorite holiday recipes. Everything from main courses to cookies to the breakfast casserole we’ve eaten every Christmas morning for as long as I can remember. In fact, I think I’ll get started after the New Year of designing separate ones for both my dad’s and mom’s sides of the family. (via the kitchn)
