Week in review

Here are some of my favorite random photo moments that couldn't each make up the subject of a blog post, but are great things about this week.

1.  Husband and I went for a long walk last night and these beautiful flowers were all over the place!  I just had to pick a few up and put them in a bowl full of water for the coffee table.  

2.  This was probably my favorite outfit of the week, but I had a hard time getting any good pictures.  I'm trying to work with outside, but the lighting.... it's an issue, to say the least.  But now you can see my backyard!
What I'm wearing:
Dress: Shabby Apple
Top: Urban Outfitters
Belt: Ruche
Shoes: Payless

3.  My cucumber plants (from seed, mind you) are what I'm most proud of growing right now.  It's totally doing what it's supposed to do!  I've never had something from seed grow so well before.  I cannot wait for some fresh cucumbers.. Mmmm.

4.  Best lunch.  A little bosc pear, sheep brie, rosemary baguette slices and (of course) a bit o' coffee.  No, I'm most certainly not eating off a yogurt lid..  Again.

5.  Even though this tomato plant already had some baby tomatoes on it when I purchased it, I'm pretty proud to see I haven't killed them yet.  And there are even more buds all over!  Tomatoes are probably the best thing in the "vegetable" section (I won't call them fruit today) and taste better when fresh from the garden instead of from the supermarket.

Happy Friday!


  1. I wish I can plant my own little garden, what living in the city takes away from me :( i'd do a little windowsill one but the pigeons would probabaly eat it up haha i'll just have to live vicariously through you!

    1. We have a lot of birds here and they actually don't bother any of my plants! I was pretty surprised. I'm doing a potted garden right now since I don't have any ground space and it works out pretty well. You can always try and see what happens!

  2. That photo set is adorable! I love it.

    Your "best lunch" sounds delicious, and I'm going to have to try that sometime.

    Good luck with your baby tomatoes! Mine failed hardcore last year; they were just starting to form fruit when I left them out in a windstorm. =[

    1. Thank you so much! I've been trying to do better at taking pictures of everything when I can.

      It *was* delicious! I was in need of something simple that day.

      And thank you for the luck with the tomatoes! We have hedges that block the sun a lot, but I try to move them around during the day. That's too bad about your tomatoes :(. They're hard to grow in Moscow, in my opinion. I didn't do well with mine either.


Your comments make my day even brighter and happier than it already was. I just love hearing what you have to say!
