my favorite way to make asparagus

i have a recipe for you.
i hope you try it and love it as much as i do.
my husband even liked it.
if you know him, i can hardly get him to eat a vegetable.
so i was super excited he liked it.
there's one catch..
it's kinda time consuming...


Here's what you do:
 Brush the asparagus with olive oil
sprinkle salt & pepper
then shred Parmesan cheese & sprinkle that on top
bake at 350 
for 10-15 minutes.

Yep... that easy. I found the recipe on the beloved pinterest.
but the picture that i tagged links to nothing. 
so i don't know the original source

Sneak Peak

Hey.. So I'm super excited to show off one of my most favorite things I've seen lately...
A couple months ago, I found out I needed to replace some old lighting in our house.
I've been going back and forth over what I wanted to get. Nothing really struck me...
Until the new Pottery Barn Spring Catalog came out.
In that catalog was these beauties right here:

These guys are called the Harlowe Pendant from Pottery Barn.
You can find them here.

I just wanted to give you a sneak peak! I couldn't wait to show you!
Once they are up, I will show you the before and after!
It'll make a HUGE difference in the house.

I'm just gonna go out and say it...
Today has been a rough day for me. I've been flooded with past memories of a special person throughout my life growing up.

I learned very early on today that a friend from school has passed away.
His name was Barney.
I remember teasing him constantly about "Fords" being a better ride than "Chevy's" mostly just to get down and bug that Chevy heart of his. It pains me to think of his smile, his hug, and the way he talked.
To think that I will never see that smile again, pains me to no end.
The thoughts running through my head, "What was my last interaction with him?" "Was it all I wanted to be if I had known it was my last time seeing him?"

At this time, all I know to say is, Rest in Peace Barney. You will be missed.
Much Love,
