winter wednesday

thanks everyone for all the fun birthday messages!!! 
I felt the cyber love all day--I wish we could all have one giant party!

Today's winter tip is something that I've been keeping to myself for a while.....but the time has come to share the news. 

The super duper exciting, screamed-when-I-found-out, delicious news. 

So far, this winter is flying by for me.....not dragging out like in past winters.

I have something I've been working on, something to think about throughout the day, and well into the night.

Winter Survival Tip #4: 
get lost in a project. 

Something to occupy your thoughts, and keep you busy when the days are long and dark, and the sun is refusing to shine.

So what's MY project? 


A cookbook. 

Let me rephrase that--A COOKBOOK!!!

Yes!! My dreams are coming true.

Some of you may know Whitney from her former blog (that is currently on hiatus but will soon be brought back to sweet delicious life), but if you don't know her--let me tell you--
this girl can cook!

So we are teaming up--her recipes + my photos.....and our official start is today. 


I will (of course) be documenting the process along the way--it's going to be a party, I am sure of it, and you will want to see it.

So while it may be cold outside--I'm painting pictures 
in my head of gorgeous summer produce, 
and dreaming of Whitney's tasty creations--take that winter.

happy wintering!

You are right, get lost in a project. That is the solution. I didn't think of it until you just said it. My head and my notebook are filled with ideas all day long.

I just have a giant grin on my face. And I am so glad you are all in. So glad.
