If there's one thing in my life that is a constant, it would be my love of tea. You should see our apartment--we have three bins packed full of teas and coffees. With the abundant variety that we have to choose from, I think it's really important to match your tea to your mood, or more … Continue reading Which tea // which mood??
If you ever find yourself near Estes Park, Colorado then you must visit Lily Lake. It's about 45 minutes from Boulder and honestly is one of the most beautiful drives to even get to the lake, let alone the scenery surrounding the lake. My family has been going to this lake for years. I remember … Continue reading Lily Lake
Caramel Apples are such a fall staple, and yet my entire life I've never been able to really enjoy them. For one, the caramel gets everywhere.
