Our Engagement Story

Love Park

Today we’re taking a little break from recipes and instead peeking into my life. The reason being? I don’t know if you caught it in my last posts, but I just got engaged a little over two weeks ago. 😀

I took a poll of sorts on Twitter to see if people would be interested in the engagement story, and the overwhelming answer was yes. So here it is! And a few photos to boot.

It’s Going to Be a Happy 2013

Howdy, friends! It’s been quite a while since my last post.

I had a lovely time over the holidays with my family and friends (those are my lovely college roommates below), ate a ton of really delicious food, and spent a lot of quality time on Amtrak.

PB Fingers Book Club: The Book Thief

We’re taking a brief hiatus from the foodie world today (although there’s still time to enter the Runa giveaway!!) to talk about my other loves: books, and getting lost in them. Here’s what I’ve been reading lately!

I’ve never been much of a historical fiction reader–except when it comes to World War II literature. Number the Stars was one of my favorite required reading books in elementary school, and I did several reports on the time period for other classes as well.

So when Julie at Peanut Butter Fingers picked The Book Thief, by Markus Zusak, for this month’s book club discussion, I was beyond psyched. I happened to have just scored a copy through a World Book Night promotion I did with my real-life job, and its praises had already been sung by my roommate.
