EATING: Since I try to eat in season I always get a little sad when it comes to winter fruit. After weeks of apples and oranges I desperately crave a little variety in my diet. Last week I made some lemon ricotta pancakes, which helped. But I recently reacquainted my taste buds with tart dried cherries. Have you had these? So so good. And I love that I can get them for el cheapo at Aldi.

MAKING: Handmade Valentine cards for Lyndsey's annual swap. This is my first year participating and I'm really excited to create something pretty to send off in the mail.  If you want to get in on the fun feel free to sign up by this Friday.

READING: My first eBook. After living without a laptop for six years I decided it was time to get with the program. A couple weeks ago I purchased a MacBook Pro and promptly named him Bertie. We've become pretty close. Right now I/we are reading Cold Tangerines by Shauna Niequist.

WATCHING: This witty five minute clip comes from a 2010 TED talk but I've watched it a couple times in the last week.  Also, January seems to be the month of documentaries. Cutie and The Boxer (recently nominated for a Academy Award) is a film about two artists, working together, both on their art and their relationship. I found it to be an entertaining take on what it means to follow your passion. Find it on Netflix along with Blackfish, a film about killer whales in captivity.

EXCITED FOR: Blogshop this weekend in Chicago. It will be my first professional blog conference! Which kind of feels like graduating to the BIG kids club or something. I've heard great things about the two-day workshop and I can't wait to interact with other creative folks, while simultaneously learning something new.
