The TBR List: Break Time

The TBR List: Break Time

I've been cutting myself a lot of slack this week. We took a couple days off to spend with family, which is a luxury provided by our proximity to them plus our stable jobs. We don't take it for granted. It's wonderful to shut off life for a few days and indulge in slowly-consumed homecooked meals followed by sleeping in absurdly late the next day. It's nearly noon where I am and I've just woken up. I love it.

What are you doing this weekend?

- I've never tried Mast Brothers Chocolate and now I never want to.

- Michelle's wisdom on blogging. I fully agree with her refusal to stop posting what she wants just because some people would rather see dessert pictures.

- Penguin's set of Little Black Classics = swoonworthy.

- I love mocktails. This one from Smitten Kitchen looks like a winner.

- Quiet home inspiration. A year ago today we finished painting our apartment. It's time for another update, I think.
