happy holidays! we had a lovely christmas break over here. i can't believe how quickly it came and went. on christmas eve we invited some friends over and had a relaxing dinner. artichoke dip, honey roasted ham, beer cheese soup, along with plenty of christmas cookies and a giant present shaped cake that our friends so thoughtfully made for us. after opening up our christmas jammies and watching christmas movies, we tucked the kids into bed and popped a bottle of champagne for santa duty. the next morning the kids were up by 6:30 and rushing down the stairs to see if santa had come. good news... he did. i made a delicious soup inspired by the big kids grandmother. she makes a ham and bean soup with the leftover ham from the night before. i made a few changes, but it was easy and delicious. this is what i did... you will need: have a good weekend. i will be back on monday! xx

Posie Gets Cozy Stitching is just plain good medicine. Put on your coziest clothes, turn on the twinkly lights, make some tea, find a good movie or your favorite music, get a full-spectrum spotlight (that's the one I have) for those dark nights, call your puppers or your kitters or your friend to your side, thread your needles, and stitch your heart back together. If yours feels good but you know someone who could use some love, stitch one for them.

South Florida Farmers Market Guide Illustration: Ana Larrauri By Kyle Teal | Miami.com 10/11/2012 The idea of modern day farmers markets may evoke images of pretentious hipster farmers who refuse to eat a carrot unless they’ve plucked it from their own soil, certified it organic and given it a name. But the truth of South Florida farmers markets fails to satisfy naïve, insulting stereotypes and, instead, introduces a kind of warm community where good-natured people (yes, some of them hipsters, but certainly not the pretentious type) meet to talk, laugh, and eat healthy, delicious food. While many grow and sell solely organic produce, other farmers are less concerned with today’s dietary trends and more concerned with providing fresh, local food. Bottom line: down here, there is something for everyone.

nanaCompany I almost feel like I should be hiding this bit of my history because it makes me sound dinosaur-old, but... when I was a kid, my friends and I would walk to a little antiques store after school and buy penny candy to stuff into our backpacks. Then we'd head over to the library to hang out. The beloved store, which we all called the "Red & White," was in a building old as dirt ~ rickety and possibly haunted, just like a lot of the old houses in the small Connecticut town of my childhood. Only recently have I learned the store was actually called, "The Homestead" ~ a sign hanging outside said so, clear as day, but I never noticed it.
