Well, happy almost-end-of-February, y’all! I wish I could say February was full of lots of exciting things, but it was actually pretty quiet, comparatively. But I’m enjoying the slower, quieter months while I can, because I know it won’t stay this way for long. March is already filling up!
I know, I know, my fondness for sangria has almost reached joke level. But with so many seasonal flavors and blends to play with, can y’all blame me? They’re so easy to mix up that I can’t resist experimenting. This week, I’m excited to share my blood orange sangria recipe that was a quick favorite among my friends.
Ah, Valentine’s Day. The holiday we all love to hate. For some, it’s just another day on the calendar. For others, it’s a day to show someone just how special they are to you—whether that person is a significant other, spouse, or just a dear friend. But there’s one other person you should never forget to take time for on Valentine’s Day—and that’s yourself!
Hey meal prepping, it’s been a while. I’m glad I’ve gotten back into this habit as I’ve settled into my 2019 routine. Lately I’ve been making a variety of sheet pan dinners, since they’re easy to throw together. Today I’m sharing my recent favorite sheet pan dinner: turkey sausage and veggies.
So, right about the time I thought we wouldn’t get an actual “winter” in Tennessee, Mother Nature was like, “hahaha, made you look,” and sent a nice little cold snap our way. It didn’t get out of the 30s for several days, and now they might be calling for snow? I thought I left snow behind in Pennsylvania. As a coping method, I mixed up a new vodka cocktail that makes me think of warmer, sunnier spring days.
It’s the first Friday Five of 2019! How was the first month of the New Year for all y’all? I jumped right back into my busy routine, but it’s been really great. I’m using this post as a chance to show off a few Christmas presents I haven’t had a chance to talk about yet, and a couple new things from the past month.
