Leave the keys under the mat. I’ll take this loft exactly as it is.
The polar vortex did not provide any days off for me, so at the end of the workday, I am focused solely on getting HOME… and making home as aesthetically appealing as possible.
London street style. Best of all, she’s in human resources.

Winter jam. A bit haunting and unintelligible, but then there’s that kicky bit that makes me want to ice skate (as if I could).
PSA: If you need a gift for a holiday swap, I highly recommend the potted Christmas cacti from Sprout Home. Festive but still usable after the season, gender-neutral, easy to care for, and just about $20, cool pot included. I liked the idea so much that I snagged this one for myself (aka Old Black Thumb).
In spite of it being my first time cooking lamb, these Lamb Chops with Pomegranate (and feta and olive) Relish were pretty scrumptious AND perfectly hued for the holiday season.
Also, how did it take me so long to put pomegranate arils on cereal?

…is my favorite thing in the world right now and I guard it fiercely.
I start at Little Goat Bread, with a latte and a toasted plain bagel with half of the peanut butter butter (not a typo, rather peanut butter and butter combined) normally slathered on.
Then I head to Whole Foods, at a time where the shelves are fully stocked, the two-tiered carts are plentiful and it’s too early for toddler naptime so all is peaceful. I grab a freshly-squeezed juice as a reward for when all the bags are emptied at home.
Yoga at noon, with my favorite teacher - a lengthy sweat session that occasionally leaves me sore well into the week.
I get home in time to watch the end of the noon football games, jump in the shower, start my laundry. I take my time drying my hair.
Evenings are for a low and slow dish - sometimes beef stew served with crusty bread purchased at the bakery in the morning, tonight it’s red wine-braised short ribs minus a stolen glass for the cook. The aroma fills the house.
