Hearting | This guy right here. I’ve been thinking about marriage a lot as our anniversary is coming up and I just feel so grateful to be living life with Jordan.

Reading | Bread & Wine by Shauna Niequist.

It’s about food and family and faith. It’s also about everything else, because all of life is a jumble of ideas and experiences and the things we find under the couch cushions. All of life is a whirling mash-up of the big and little things — the things we see and think and remember and smell and feel, the deep values that guide us and the dirt under our fingernails, the undercurrents of belief and doubt and coolness of the cotton sheets right when we slide our toes down to the bottom of the bed. It’s about food, and it’s not. It’s about life, which is to say it’s about everything.

Pinning | Dainty necklaces and stacked rings. Besides a few gifts and pieces from my grandmother’s collection, my jewelry wardrobe is still from college (or high school!). I’m ready for an upgrade.

Eating | Popcorn, hummus, and chicken salad. I like my chicken salad with grapes. Oh and dark chocolate. Always dark chocolate. 🙂

Anticipating | Our upcoming visit to Chicago in April. It’ll be quick, but I’m looking forward to good pizza and seeing friends and family.

  1. That book sounds good – how do you like it so far? Yay for coming back to Chicago, hopefully the snow is gone by then. And I’m excited that you get to have good pizza again 🙂

  2. That book sounds really good. Sometimes I need a book like that where I can just sit back and read something simple and inspiring. I read a lot of war fiction and historical fiction which can get really heavy and depressing after a while. Thanks for the recommendation. I’m probably going to look it up tonight b/c I am finishing up a WWI fiction and I’ve had tears in my eyes for three days.

  3. Mmm lots of hummus around here lately too – my toddler can’t get enough of it! And happy almost anniversary – we just had ours yesterday so I’m feeling all lovey too 🙂 Thanks for linking up!

  4. i want to read bread + wine so badly! it’s on my “to buy” list! 🙂
    and i’m all about some dainty jewelry!
    and HUMMUS – my life’s food calling haha

  5. I’m currently reading through Bread and Wine, too! It’s so so good and brings me to tears in every chapter!

    So glad you linked up with us. Happy anniversary!

  6. First of all- I love that picture of you two 🙂 Second of all- LOVE your Style board on Pinterest!! Can’t wait to see what new pieces you acquire! 🙂

  7. I just finished reading Bread & Wine — SO good! I’m an introverted early bird, but her words made me want to throw open the door to my apartment and have a buzzing dinner party late into the night! I hope you enjoy the rest of it. I think I’ve already read about 10 of your posts and I’m totally hooked. Your photography is beautiful and your writing is so fresh and honest. I can’t wait to read more from you! Happy Valentine’s Day to you and your sweet husband.
