Vroom Vroom

I need this in my life. Ok, maybe "need" is too strong a word, but.. oh wait, no it isn't. I NEED this in my life.

Travel Bug

In just 7 short days, I'll be heading out on my third trip abroad (already crossed off Dubai and Paris from my list) to Istanbul, and I can hardly contain my excitement. There's something about planning a trip though that makes me yearn for all the other places I want to go. It's always really hard for me to narrow it down to a "Top" whatever, but here a 5 places I'm dying to visit.

1. Morocco

2. Germany

3. Thailand

4. Holland

5. Mexico

Melancholy. Reflective.

Do you ever feel both happy and sad about the same thing at the same time? Being in love- truly, fully in love- for the first time has been absolutely amazing and I am SO very excited about the relationship I'm in and thinking about all the incredible things we're going to do and experience together. But at the same time, it's often a little anxiety inducing. I'm a the point in my life right now where I'm nearing a crossroads. I'll be done with school very soon (fingers crossed; still not convinced it's almost over. ::waits for other shoe to drop::) and I've been ready to leave Chicago for a long time now. I've been saying that once I'm done with school, I'm ready to go some place new, but as time goes on I'm like, we'll... maybe I'll stay for another 6 months... maybe I'll wait another year... But I really am ready to go, and I don't know that my love will be ready when I am. What will happen if and when that time comes? I try not to think about it too much because that time is not here yet, but I can't help it. It's still in the back on my mind...

Unique Macaroons

I've been wanting to try my hand at macarons for a while now.  I actually made a a "to-do list" for 2014, as opposed to a making new year's resolutions this year, and baking these lovely French confections is right at the top.  For my birthday last year my roommate got me this great book that has some wonderful looking recipes, but I thought it might be fun to pull together some other cool and crazy macaron recipes from around the web.  Take a look!
