Lazy Afternoon

{JCrew sweater, Anthropologie skirt, necklace made by a Lithuanian artist}

I'm a big fan of maxi skirts. I love how they create a romantic vibe, can be easily dressed up or down, and most importantly cover up any lower body imperfections. It is even better when the skirt is made out of jersey material, which means a complete freedom of movement - perfect for running errands in comfort or lounging around the house without looking frumpy.

Simple Delights: Belgian Waffles

Last Sunday I woke up to find something very unusual - Mr. C whipping up Belgian waffles in the kitchen. In a house where there are only two breakfast options (eggs or cereal) this seemed like a very big deal. In fact it was so special that it even deserved eating at the dinning room table for the first time in years. Considering this was only the second time C ever made this favorite breakfast delight of mine, I was very impressed. They came out perfectly golden brown and deliciously crisp, and even better topped with whipped cream and a variety of fruit. I can see this becoming our new Sunday morning tradition.

Simple Delights

{Starting a one-sentence journal}

I love the idea of documenting your thoughts and events in a journal. However, I always struggle to keep my writings consistent. At the end of the day I often lack time and energy and writing is the last thing I want to do. This little journal is meant for recording only one sentence a day. One sentence! Now that I can handle.

{See-through swine - a fun way to save your pennies}

{A new knitting project - always a good way to relax}

{Good old Chinese take out - dinner that never fails}

On those lazy Sunday evenings, when cooking is the last thing I want to do, it magically appears at our door.

{Who knew user manuals could be an exciting read?}

On Christmas Mr. C surprised me with a new camera (Nikon D7000). I have tons to learn about how to use it properly, which means lots of practice and reading that owner's manual cover to cover.
