Photo Essays: Westbury Gardens

Happy Memorial Day Weekend!

Happy Memorial Day + three day weekend! I’m so ready for an extra day off. I haven’t felt 100% this week (I seem to have caught a little bug), so I plan on relaxing, practicing photography lots, and reading a bunch. I recently got completely obsessed with Game of Thrones … Read more ››

Sweet Potato Muffins

It may seem odd to be making a recipe with sweet potatoes in spring. But, two things: one, sweet potatoes are one of my favorite vegetables, and two, these don’t really taste like sweet potato, at all. In these whole wheat muffins, what the sweet potato really does is just … Read more ››

Puffin and Penguin Classics

As many may know from past posts, I am obsessed with Mr. Boddington’s Penguin classics (here is where I lusted over them….here is where I broke down and bought them). Mr. Boddington’s is a New York City stationery studio that designed six gorgeous jackets for classic novels with Penguin, to be sold … Read more ››
