I wrote the below post in September 2015, long before this blog existed. I’m sharing it again today, because I feel that the message still rings true. I also feel that now more than ever before, it’s important for us to take a quiet moment to remember.
A few weeks ago, The Shire went on our annual family vacation . . .
Hey everyone! I spent last week in New York’s Finger Lakes (travel guide coming soon!), and am definitely missing vacation mode.
Not gonna lie, I spend a lot of time on the Internet. Some of that is due to my job, some of that is a side effect of blogging, but if I’m being honest, I primarily show up for the cute animal pictures and videos.
As I’ve mentioned before (probably ad nauseam), I adore brunch. I nearly always choose savory over sweet (eggs are nature’s perfect food for a reason, duh!) and while a variation on Eggs Benedict (**cough** Lobster Benny **cough**) will always reign supreme, I do love a good quiche!
I was fortunate enough to be able to extend my July 4th holiday into a little mini staycation last week, and spent some time adventuring around Annapolis, Baltimore, and D.C.
I ate way too much good food, scoped out some new spots, soaked up some sunshine, and best of all, swung by my all-time favorite place in Baltimore: the Peabody Library.
Perhaps you didn’t know this, but of all the birthdays in all the land, I love yours most of all.
I’m known for a few things: my love of Harry Potter, cats, and traveling; my excessive consumption of coffee; and my #ShireMargs.
And while any good margarita can stand on its own, we all know that margs are best when paired with guac, and that guac is best when it’s homemade.
