Midsummer Tidbits

Well, here we are, somehow halfway through the month of July! My last "real" summer has been a change of pace. I've learned to lay low but enjoy the little details, from daily morning walks to a homemade pasta dinner. I have been crafting recipes up a storm, yet there are so many little tidbits I want to share with you in the meantime. So, I thought this Sunday midsummer morning would mark the perfect opportunity. -- T-minus ONE WEEK until I'm in a brand new apartment! I can't wait to share pictures once everything is in place. My newest favorite piece is below. I've also started a wish list of apartment (and closet) accessories in the right side bar, entitled "Currently Coveting". . . scroll through yourself!


-- Speaking of accessories, Anthropologie is partnering with a gorgeous, curated line of handmade home goods from Lost + Found. My favorite piece is the wooden chef's serving bowl for entertaining. The entire line (see photo below) is absolutely gorgeous, and you can buy in-stores starting tomorrow, too, if you find yourself in Austin! Otherwise, you can order by searching by brand for "lost + found" on the Anthro home page.


-- It's worth a shot: If you're from Memphis, I'd love your vote for BEST LOCAL BLOG and BEST LOCAL WEBSITE on the Best of Memphis ballot! Thanks in advance!

-- Since pre-ordering my Yellow Table cookbook (only two days left to get yours!), I've become infatuated with Chef Anna Watson Carl's cross-country cookbook road trip. She collaborated with some of my fave bloggers out there, including Jeanine of Love & Lemons and Joy the Baker. Serious jealousy over here, Anna. Get your copy before it's too late!

-- My beloved Memphis has recently been rocking the national food scene! The best slices of the city were shared on NYTimes and Hog & Hominy chef/owners were interviewed on GQ. Andy & Michael's ten unforgettable restaurant experiences sound too good to be true. . .
