side notes: spring lovin’

SN-1467 copy

Hello, Boston Harbor. Last time we met, some people were pouring Arizona iced tea in you. (Ha! Get it? Boston… Tea… Boston Tea Party. Ha. No… just, no.)

Note to all people who think pouring tea into the harbor is funny and original: It’s not. And it’s just a waste of tea (or in this case, “tea”).

hazelnut-studded cinnamon ricotta scones

I’ve been reading and watching the news non-stop for the past 36 hours. Despite the frequent sirens right outside my window, it’s hard to believe that what I’m seeing on TV is happening here in Boston.

It’s no secret how I feel about this city – I love it.

In other words: Prepare yourselves.

toasted coconut & salted caramel rugelach

LR Sample Edit-3641

Question: Have you ever logged onto Facebook, skimmed through your News Feed, and then proceeded to spend the next 15-20 minutes looking at/ through your own page? (I’m talking pictures, old posts, the works.)

Welp, that sounded overly narcissistic.

For those of you who answered “no,” well, I guess I already lost ya. I guess you’re also a million times better at using your time productively. For those of you who answered “yes”… wait, did anyone else answer yes? Probably not – I’m just a weirdo, sometimes. Don’t mind me.
