Currently: March


The love I have for the month of March only has the tiniest bit to do with it containing my birthday. March means cool crisp mornings, fresh flowers, and the last few reverent sips of seasonal hot beverages. Even with it being with out a doubt one of my busiest work months, I am so excited for what the next few weeks will bring. Here is what I am up to currently.

wishing – for a “good” big life change. The big 30 is only a few weeks away, and I am hoping that the next decade will hold lots of fun and new adventures. My world expanded so much in my 20’s, and I’d like for the trend to continue.  

craving – fresh berries. I don’t know why, but I want all of the berries. Blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, blackberries…all sound absolutely amazing. It’s even affecting my cooking. I am thinking about how delicious they would be in salad, garnishing baked goods or simmered down into a delicious sauce. The produce section at the grocery store is incredibly dangerous right now.

going – on some mini trips. This is one of those “finger crossed” things, but I am hoping to do a couple day trips with various friends over the next few weeks. Cave exploring in Marianna, shopping in Jacksonville, and giant tree hugging in Thomasville. All a little up in the air at the moment, but I am really hoping everything falls into place.

wearing – florals. Usually I am a basic black with a hint of jewel tone kind of girl, but I decided this year to infuse my wardrobe with some spring florals. It is a little strange, and I do feel a bit more conspicuous wearing more color, but I like the inherent “girliness” that comes along with it.

learning – about flavor pairing. My favorite local tea place is holding a tea and chocolate tasting class, and I convinced Andy to sign up for it with me. Date night with hot tea and chocolate? It’s going to be so much fun!

What going on in your world currently?

It’s time for the November installment of Currently. Here are a few of the things I have been up to recently.Cup1

COOKING – Lots of apples. Apple butter, cinnamon apples, caramel apples, apple muffins, cakes, and breads. I love apple season, and I can’t seem to get enough of the crisp tart juicy perfection.

PLANNING – Our week long trip for Thanksgiving. We have quite the journey planned, Charlotte, Greensboro, Murphy, and then back to Tallahassee. Lots of driving so I am trying to come up with some great road trip tunes and snacks to make the hours (hopefully) fly by.

SMELLING – Cinnamon. It is my go-to Autumn scent, and I try to fill the house with it. Cinnamon brooms, scented pine cones, cinnamon infused baked goods…it is one of those scents that entices you to breathe deeply while it wraps you in warm cozy goodness.

APPRECIATING – What I have. With all of the fantastic holiday chaos, it’s easy to lose sight of the more subtle steadfast things in your life. I have a home (that will someday be beautiful), a job, and a husband who lets me know every day that he loves me, and some days it helps put other things in perspective. I have a wonderful life already, and everything else that comes my way is just an amazing bonus.

ANTICIPATING – All the friends and family I am going to get to see this month. I am going to get to meet the newest addition to my college roommate’s family, spending some pre-turkey day time with the in-laws, plus seeing my aunts, uncles, cousins and mom. It’s going to be hectic and crazy (as many holidays are), but I wouldn’t give it up for anything.

Currently October

Hey guys! Today I am trying out something new.  I’m linking up with In Residence and Gold and Bloom for the October edition of Currently to share what I have been eating, exploring, wearing, admiring and collecting lately. Hope you enjoy!


EATING | Apple cider doughnuts. Andy and I picked them up when we went on our recent apple picking adventure. They are crazy good, and we’ve been enjoying them for dessert with a hot mug of tea. Hooray for cooler weather!
EXPLORING | Local small towns. I have had some wonderful experiences taking mini trips to Monticello, FL and Thomasville, GA, and I know there have to be more amazing small towns within day tripping distance.
WEARING | The softest lounge pants in the world. I picked them up at Costco on a whim, and they are magical. Soft on the outside and even softer on the inside, they’re like wearing a warm cloud. You laugh, but I am completely serious.
ADMIRING | New blogging friends. I met some wonderful ladies at the Maiedae Mixer this past Sunday, and it has been amazing to see what incredible things these women are putting out into the world.
COLLECTING | Recipes, I want to make Christmas treat baskets for my family and friends this year, so I am trying to get a preliminary list together so I can do a test run before the holiday insanity hits.
