This week, living with Tim, in Nashville, in our third year of marriage, was:
Cold days with no snow (it just barely missed us!).
Cuddled up mornings, side by side on the sofa on our laptops.
The demise of a succulent plant.
And, on two different mornings, these frothy dessert shakes made with bananas, peanut butter, and Carrie Vitt’s four-ingredient recipe for homemade chocolate syrup, all so I could add (my best attempt at) hearts on top.
“It is not necessary to have an extravagant food budget in order to serve things with variety and tastefully cooked. It is not necessary to have expensive food on the plates before they can enter the dining room as things of beauty in colour and texture. Food should be served with real care as to the colour and texture on the plates, as well as with imaginative taste. This is where artistic talent and aesthetic expression and fulfillment come in.” Edith Schaeffer
