week in pictures

my lack of blog posting is because of my new job, i'm hoping that I will learn the balancing act of everything, until then we will have to deal with sporadic posts!

josh, eloise & i curled up watching a movie.
one of my valentine's day presents from joshua, thank you!
so i have found a new favorite restaurant in town, anchorage cafe. i always base this decision on the price, the tastiness of the food and the service!

the sun is out today, so i'm off to soak up the rays! until next time, xo.

week in pictures

 Carly's raccoons she is working on.
 This is the best dessert Beth has ever made, I think it should be your go-to-dish!

We explored New Albany today, I have to say getting there was a bit hairy but as soon as we got into the quaint town we knew why we drove so far. Quills Coffee was one of our first stops, Beth and I tried one of their specialty drinks, a Veloce. Mikey got a sorghum latte, which he mentioned about five times on the way home and how it was the best latte he ever had. So it goes without saying we Highly Recommend Quills Coffee!

Enjoy your weekend!

geeky cards

Nicole Martinez has some quirky illustrations that I just love; You magnetize my poles, my beaker bubbles for you, you charge my particles, and you fog my spectacles.

chronic activity

if you know me, you probably would describe me as full of energy, someone who doesn't relax too often. my mom will usually say, 'jean started running when she was 7 months old, she never learned to walk.'
well this study proves that being chronically active is okay!

these are MRI cross sections of leg muscles, to read the study click here.

the month of love

valentine's day is right around the corner. our typical valentine's day consist of dinner the following evening. we are a couple who likes to avoid crowds! at least we both agree, right? 

do you celebrate -- dinner? movie? a completely romantic evening? 

hope your enjoying the day!

sleeping porch before & after

 i love seeing before and after pictures of home diy projects, i'm always inspired by how someone visualized the end result from the beginning. the hanging bed makes the space so luxurious, it's a little escape from the day.

a well traveled woman

 a well traveled woman has been one of my favorite blogs for a while now. bekah has 16 chickens and 5 peacocks, amazing right? i find the task of raising your own food a great way to give back and appreciate what you have. i have read and reread her blog multiple times, it's beautiful! for some inspiring images and alternative ways to live, check out a well traveled woman

music wednesdays: of monsters and men

of monsters and men is a six-piece group from iceland, based in seattle. their style sounds similar to mumford and sons & arcade fire - they have even been compared to edward sharpe & the magnetic zeros. i can't choose my favorite song, so here are a few!
