four recipes i want to make this winter.
there is just something about comfort food & soup when it’s chilly outside & you have got a bad case of the sniffles.
two ingredient gluten free pancakes || spicy sausage, potato & kale soup || garlic & rosemary infused homemade potato chips || chicken & barley soup
making the bed is overrated//fresh hypericum//morning shadows//news all the way from Malawi//newest addition to our plant family//winter shelf for our plants
we have been sick for two weeks over here at the howard abode.
ready to start feeling whole & healthy again.
& this, scenes from our home.
our refuge during sickness.
our cozy during these chilly days.
since starting a creative business,
it’s been filled with a roller coaster of seasons.
ebbs & flows. a struggle/fight/dance of sorts.
inspiration, excitement, growth.
discouragement, burnout, apathy.
currently feeling stuck in creative block upon creative block.
but also filled with hope
because after a low season,
it seems a beautiful season always wins out.
the dance is always good, even when we can’t feel it.
even when it’s clumsy & messy.
even when we want to rush off that dance floor.
it seems we always come out feeling thankful for the change all this confusion & discontentment brings.
maybe because it makes us ask the hard questions to continually refine our craft.
how. what. why. who.
we want to come out of this rut fighting for beauty, life, & change.
we want to come out better. filled with excitement.
combating the apathy so we don’t suffocate in this stuckness.
excited for change, new dreams, & whatever is coming next.
here’s to life & to living. with all our might.
happy weekend, friends.
this weekend we will be decorating our abode with christmas cheer.
& trying to deal with a mouse problem we have in the house.
eeeek. wish us luck.
enjoy our december playlist filled with sounds of falling snow, tinsel, & hope.
may these tunes keep you cozy during these chilly winter days.
