Looking over at the side of this blog, 2015 is the 7th year I will be documenting! Seriously! I started this little thing when I first moved away from home and started design school in seattle. I was 19 and a spaze, er, well, still a spaze, but a 7 year wiser spaze. This year I celebrate year 25 and have some big plans on the horizon.
2014 started quickly, I was off to Nashville last January for an award nomination in the Special Events industry. It was a wild ride, both for the snow storms that covered much of the US, but also being perhaps one of the youngest nominees for design work. From Seattle we traveled to Detroit to get to Nashville, and Atlanta and Houston to get home! This was year of a lot of travel, 14 states with my road trip this past autumn!
There was lots of adventure in 2014, and i hope for more 2015!
2014 was also a year for growing friendships. I was around so many new and old friends, and despite my loner tendencies, it felt really nice. i've always appreciated a handful of closer friends to piles of acquaintances.
cooking was also a blast this year, it helps to have a partner to help (who will also take care of extensive leftovers for picky eaters like me...). Being a home chef is so fun and anthony has kept me inspired to try lots of new things. He even got me to eat way more vegetables and use a little less cheese ;) My favorite recipe of the year was a weird one,
Braised Coconut Spinach & Chickpeas with Lemon - Served over a Roasted Sweet Potato.
Holy grail of flavor! This sounds random with thai and italian influences, it is, but gosh was it was yummy! We used kale instead of spinach. make this!
In no particular order, here are some of my favorite photos from the year. Magic.
