Two Bits

Each Friday we share some tidbits from our week.  We want to break down these internet barriers and invite you into our lives and we’re hoping you’ll do the same.  You are welcome to share a bit of your week or day in the comments, or if they’re better represented by a photo, tag us on instagram @liveseasoned

I know that Sarah’s been busy all week with a photo shoot, so of course the Friday post is late when left in my hands. And me? I’ve been busy all week with the general busy-ness of life – doctor’s appointments, dog sitting, haircuts, generally rough stuff :). But I was lucky enough to sneak in a few moments of Christmas planning here and there. I tested out a few methods for making some toddler-safe tree ornaments (that’s a work-in-progress shot above). And I was finally able to take that lip balm course at the local apothecary. It was so good! I made lip balm before, but it was nice to get the informed and tested tricks from someone who has a lot more practice. We also learned some simple and natural techniques for adding color to our balms and for making glosses too. I’m so excited to try making a batch for holiday giving!

What a week! I cooked up a storm, which I’ll be sharing this week and I went on a work trip to Charlotte.  Lately I had been feeling uninspired in the kitchen. I realized that was because I wasn’t spending much time in there.  I would make a quick dish, something unsatisfying and then feel bummed about it.  This past week I spent a few hours cooking up new recipes and creating different spice blends and it felt so therapeutic.  I guess I just had to get back on the horse. Yehawwww, get ready for some tasty dishes this week and this winter 🙂 Pictured above are grilled pork skewers with a warm marinade including nutmeg, cayenne, cinnamon, lemon juice and much more.

Thanksgiving is upon us! I usually forget about holidays until the week before and then I get uber excited about them.  Tomorrow I’m headed to Florida for the next ten days to help my best friend plan her wedding.  I’m so excited to chitchat and lounge and have a laid back little holiday with a sweet lady.  I’m thinking about stopping by the Everglades before I drive back home.  I’ve never been, have you?
