↳This garden bouquet of cuttings from our yard. The previous tenants of our house have planted so many varieties of plants. At any given moment, something is in bloom, all the foliage patiently taking it's turn to blossom. I love various textures and heights in a bouquet; for this one, I particularly love the soft ferns that creep out from under the house.
↳This orange and olive oil cake. I was reading my newest issue of Food and Wine and came across an article on Crete and "ancient brunch." The recipe makes the most of ingredients, like olive oil, that are plentiful in that region. As soon as I read the article, I headed to the grocery store for a bag of oranges to juice. The cake is the perfect texture and absolutely delicious. Easily one of my new favorite cake recipes, something I can imagine eating every Christmas Eve.
↳This morning light. Slow Saturday mornings are my favorite, and Sunday morning runs have quickly become a favorite as well. There's no traffic noise on Sunday mornings, there's fellow runners and neighbors walking their dogs, and sometimes I'll catch a breeze off the lake.
↳These paws. I love coming into the living room to find Mordechai on the couch, on his back, legs in the air. He can sprawl out and take up 3/4's of the couch, or he can curl up really small, laying his head on my feet at the end of the bed. He really is the sweetest comfort these days.
I first saw this my week in objects feature on Reading My Tea Leaves.
