Food and Wine

Avocado toast, or avo toast as hip foodies (a.k.a. people cooler than me) refer to it, is nothing new but it’s a staple in my house. I love having it for breakfast at least twice a week. I grew up with an early love of avocados because of my grandparents. I can remember a cup […]

Cathedrals & Cafés Turns One!

Blogging, Lifestyle

Happy Blogiversary! They say a lot can happen in a year. In the blogging world, the first year can make or break you, and most of the time it’s the latter. I’ve read over and over that most blogs don’t survive past a year (or even make it twelve months). I’m not sure I can […]
