Hello spring // welcome madness


I tend to forget that with the spring weather and excitement comes a good deal of madness too. Lately, I just have to keep telling myself this is all a part of the journey. The worry and concerns have been overwhelming, but at least the  fun times have seemed much brighter than they normally do in light of everything.

As I mentioned in the last post, a lot in my life has seemed to be in a state of transition, but good things are happening and I’m excited to share new photos and memories soon. For now, enjoy the madness.

And its the start of a brand new weekend!

Today has been a day of hats//fancy sparkling water//mandelbrodt//food writing @ Duke//and time in the sun with mosquito friends.

Have a happy weekend, and remember this:

“Sharing food with another human being is an intimate act that should not be indulged in lightly.” – M. F. K. Fisher
