I’m still feeling the Valentine’s Day love hangover this morning, so I wanted to share a little bit about something I’ve fallen in love with this week, the blog love.life.eat.
Written by a published author with a love for food and photography, it’s the perfect mix of gorgeous images and simple, compelling words. I’m always drawn to blog authors that share their life experiences truthfully and look at the world with curiosity and passion and Felicia does that in such an engaging way. Her recipes make my mouth water and her words are just stunning. Check out a few lines from a recent favorite post on simplifying her life:
If this be a home, let it be filled with things baking. Hot loaves in ovens and the windows flung open to let the wind in. Let there be stacks of books, floor to ceiling, so they tower and tumble and sometimes fall to the floor. But that’s okay. It always is. At the end of the day all I need is a good book and a sugary bun. Life suddenly becomes that simple.
I’m starting to realize that I’m happiest owning less and sharing, experiencing more.
I found her through a tweet from another absolute favorite, Karey Mackin, and quickly read through dozens of posts. In a blogging landscape where so much of what I read is all about buying and selling and branding and sponsorship, this blog is refreshing in its basic drive to connect readers through food and fellowship.
What are you reading and loving these days? Any blogs I should check out?
Hope you all have a wonderful long weekend. J and I have a mini trip to Los Angeles planned to catch up with old friends and to get the ball rolling on my week of birthday celebrations. I’m excited to finally check out a few hip downtown LA spots like Bottega Louie, Poketo, Clare Vivier, and of course, The Last Bookstore!
