i never thought the time would come in my life where i was as obsessed with an animal as much as i was obsessed with cats. obviously i still love cats and every animal ever and also baby raccoons because they're probably the cutest little creatures ever but i have become such a bunny person! when i got my two rabbits a few months ago i had no idea what i was getting into, i don't think i've ever even met a rabbit before but they remind me so much of cats, especially since they use litter boxes! 14 days ago i came into the living room and found babies! six of them, all hairless and see through they kind of looked like worms and even though it's only been two weeks they've been growing so much! most of their eyes have opened already and they're getting more mobile, while still hanging out in the nest and cuddling and napping mostly. and do you see that brown bunny? how random is that, i really want to keep it because it's so rare and special! i'm so proud of bunelope she is such a good mama.

1 a wintery drive // i seriously love bavaria in the winter, it's so beautiful. i really love the weather here in general, it's either rainy or snowy and it's only deathly hot two weeks out of the summer.
2 a simple galette // these are my new favourite things to make lately. galette's somehow pull off the rustic yet fancy look which is kind of my ideal look for everything, food, clothes, and home decor.
3 a thoughtful note // i've been super sick the past few days, i have my first ever sinus infection, and it's come with a terrible headache that's reduced me to tears. my super lovely neighbor slipped this note in my mailbox, along with some lana del rey songs and the second hunger games movie. i love sweet gestures from friends.
4 gifts from the dude // i'm not one to ask for things or care for expensive gifts, i like my gifts to be meaningful and not too lavish, and dan sent me the best little package ever, not pictured was a cat lady related magnet. i swoon at these cat theme gifts.
it feels like a sunday, probably because i only left my house just to run to the store for sparkling water and trash bags and my day was spent vegging out with cohen and watching bob's burgers and ordering essential oils online. sometime's its way easier to summarize the way you're feeling with a moodboard than a lengthy blog post, you know?
current obsessions: dream catchers, white candles, everything cozy, lemongrass tea, flower petal baths, hair masks, succulents, waking up early, rose lip gloss, snow covered trees, mixed metals
ps. lana del rey did a cover of once upon a dream for the new disney movie maleficent and it's so beautiful and i've had it on repeat all day. her voice is always haunting in the best way.
it's so wild to me how much someone can change in a matter of months, and i'm really embracing it. i left behind all of my fears (except ants, deep ocean, and space... yep those fears are still alive and well) but fears of what other people think, fears of truly loving myself, fears of letting the good in. i was scared to let my relationships reach their high point because i was scared of a possible eventual crash, i was scared to declare my love of god from the rooftops because that change came along so quickly and out of the blue, i worried my friends might reject me. just a fear to really be me. it's like i've been this person all along, except i was just trapped in some kind of prison and i was forced to watch myself make a few wrong choices and i couldn't stop myself even though i tried. i know that probably sounds weird but it's the truth. i'm finally free, like i'm actually free. free from the fear that held me back so much the past 26 years. i really think that i was always searching but didn't know exactly what for, even though i was so fulfilled at home, especially with cohen, but i still had this huge void that ate away at me and god was the answer. that's all i ever needed and the constant joy that i feel and the peace that keeps me centered when i'm facing scary things that only he can bring, i couldn't ask for anything more. i'm surrounded by a husband that provides, and adores my son. a child that is the very best parts of me, and makes me laugh all day and friends and family that let me lean on them. i'm so ready to see what else is in store for me, and i'm so ready to experience all that life has to offer with all my walls down. happy new year!

i went to a halloween party a couple of weeks ago, and a friend from bible study brought in this dish (btw all the dishes she brings for any pot luck are amazing, i can always point hers out) and i immediately asked her for this recipe and she linked me to the recipe when she got home. i made it the other day and it was soooo good and comforting and i didn't feel too guilty eating half of it because kale. it's probably my new favourite fall dish.
