Hey there! How has your week been? The last week or so has been rather unproductive for me as I came down with a nasty cold (not COVID, thank goodness), and I’ve been trying to recover from that. It’s been a little slow going. With all of the COVID precautions, I haven’t been sick for two years, and I don’t think my body knows what to do anymore. At peak immunity (is that a thing?), I could fully recover from a cold in a few days. This is taking me a little longer.

There is no time to rest as we’ll be out of town again this weekend. We’ve had a lot of trips to Cleveland this spring, and I’m not mad about it. We’re going back this weekend, and I’m looking forward to meeting up with friends for dinner and celebrating Mother’s Day.

Officially Loving Wide-Leg Jeans

In other news, I’ve fully transitioned to loving wide-leg jeans! I will be a skinny jean STAN forever and always. What else are you supposed to wear with boots in the winter? But, there is something about wide-leg jeans this year that has me smitten. At first, it took me a while to get behind them. I kept thinking, eh, do these look weird on me? But the more I wear them, the more I fall in love with the silhouette. I think they’re perfect for this dressy but not dressy in-between that exists at the office now. For me, they look best with fitted tops or tops that can be tucked in and a pointy flat or heel.

Eagerly Watching Our Seedlings Grow

We started seeds inside this year, and I am so excited to watch them grow. We got one of those seed starter kits from Home Depot and watered and planted the seeds over the weekend. They’re already starting to grow like crazy. We’re growing zinnias, wildflowers, and foxglove. I can’t wait!

Watching and Loving Bridgerton

During my sickness, I started watching Bridgerton. At first, I was a little turned off. It seemed a little too over the top. But now, I’m zipping through episodes and just started season 2. The costumes and settings are a wonderful escape. I didn’t realize it would be such a bodice ripper, but now I know why it’s so popular. Also, I love all of the classical covers and have been listening to them non-stop on Spotify.

Baking Quiche with All the Spring Veggies

I love using seasonal ingredients in my cooking, so when I saw this Well Plated Spinach Quiche recipe, I had to make it. It features a lot of feta cheese (yum!) and leeks. It’s decadent and delicious — perfect for the weekend.

I hope you have a wonderful rest of your week and weekend!
