Happy February! Time for these days to get a bit longer, don’t you think?
I’m yearning for Spring, for the ability to walk home with my groceries and not have the produce I just bought freeze in the bags, and for more light in general.
January was cold, but warmth was brought into my life in many ways. I found out that two of my best friends are expecting (totalling THREE besties that will be producing little ones this year) and lots of warm meals came out of my kitchen.
My favorite recipe that I made was my mini chocolate cakes with salted caramel buttercream…
…but my homemade cinnamon marshmallows and homemade hot chocolate are a close second!!
I baked and cooked a lot from other blogs this month as well. Want some fun new recipes? Below are the ones I made and loved!

Other January Stuff?
I started taking French lessons twice a week (one of my 30 Things to Do Before 30)!
This new David Attenborough series Life Story is seriously amazing. Lots of cuddly baby animals, awesome photography and love stories. You can watch the first episode here actually. Isn’t nature the best?!
I just finished Season 1 of American Horror Story. Anyone else watch it? Deciding if I should bother with Season 2.
Paul and I are working our way through the Oscar Nominations. So far we’ve seen all the nominations except for American Sniper and Selma…but my vote is for Boyhood.
The new Invisibilia podcast is soooo good!! I don’t even miss Serial…which is saying a lot.
That’s all folks. Have a great February!!
