I decided {at the last-minute and thanks to my sister} to join the Nester and her 31 days link party.

I will be writing a letter everyday for 31 days.

Some will be silly letters.

Some will be serious letters.

And all of them will be very sincere.

Hope you enjoy this little project {and I hope it makes you laugh or cry or at least get to know me a little better}.

I’m a little late to the party…forgive me.


Day 1 {sort-of}:

Dear Fellow Night Owls,

Are you awake right now? It’s past midnight and I’m hopeful that some of you are up. Are you reading blogs, cleaning, watching TV, folding laundry or just trying to fall asleep as thoughts of tomorrow race through your brain? That’s usually what I’m doing. It’s not that I want anyone else to be as crazy as me…but I like knowing I’m not the only crazy one out there. A few months ago my Paigey told me that I’m like a bat because I stay up all night and sleep all day. Her five-year old observation was not that far off…in reality. I would love to be up all night and sleep until noon everyday {I’m not really awake in the morning until 10 AM and at least one or two cups of coffee anyway}. I struggle to get out of bed every.single.day. I do have trouble sleeping most nights and honestly I just have more energy at night. When 10 PM rolls around…I come alive. I am not in a season of life that is conducive to being a night owl {college was so awesome} but sometimes I just cannot help myself!  Please tell me I’m not the only one. I would like to think that you are out there doing the same things as I shut down the house and glance at the clock each night and think oops I did it again…how did it get so late? So goodnight my fellow owls…sleep tight. Until we meet again tomorrow night! XO

Sincerely {and sleepily},




Soup’s On {and a Potato Leek Soup with a twist}…

I linked up at The Larson Lingo yesterday with one of my favorite recipes: Potato Leek Soup.

I chose this because it’s simple and only has a few ingredients and can be adapted a million different ways {and it was my grandma’s recipe}! See below for how I adapted it into a veggie soup! {P.S. I always enjoy reading The Larson Lingo…so go check it out!}
To make this recipe simply add whatever veggies you have on hand {I added carrots & mushrooms} and follow the steps in the original recipe. Chop your veggies {I don’t even peel my potato’s most of the time}, add to the pan in layers {with or without the bacon/ham}, and add the broth/stock {you can use veggie or chicken broth or stock}. Make sure you season it well as you go! For one more twist you can add fresh garlic for a few minutes before you add the broth/stock if you like garlic {don’t add it first as it can burn}. I did not get a picture of the completed soup {sad} but it was great. I often make this when I have a girlfriend over…I chop and simmer the whole thing while we chat and in no time we are enjoying a warm and yummy soup! Just add your favorite bread, salad or sandwich!
