Happy Friday!

Hello everyone!

I hope that you are staying warm.  Here in North Carolina it is 27 degrees and it is supposed to start snowing by noon.

The accumulation isn't supposed to be more than an inch...but I don't know how much you can really trust the weather people around here.

Today, because it is so cold, I wanted to share a few warm thoughts from Pinterest:

I am very ready for summer to get here...or at least warmer weather.

Before I sign off for this balmy Friday I wanted to share something I stumbled upon.

On Etsy there is a group of vegan artisans who have come together and produce vegan items...should that be of interest to you.

You can find them here or by going to and searching veganetsy (yes all one word).


  1. Hi Rachel! Thank you for your warm pictures. I think we all need them today! I, too, can't wait for summer. Not only will it be warmer, but I'll have my baby!

  2. I notice that my readers from the East Coast and Scandinavia are ready for Summer...already. I'm assuming because after just a few weeks of cold weather like that, it gets old fast. 27 degrees? Californians are freezing right now with this "unusually" cold winter. With highs in the high forties and low fifties, we're not sure what to do withourselves...? I love the cold weather...California cold that is. :) Love to you and happy weekend.


  3. You have no idea how happy these pics made me (or maybe you do) thank you :-) I crave spring and summer! Can't wait to check out the vegan stay shop. I am kind of leaning into a more vegetarian/vegan diet.
    Smiles and warm day dreams,

    1. Vegan etsy shop that is, darn auto correct!

  4. Even though it's not too cold here in Southern California those tropical beach vacations look great to me! I enjoy the cold (well as cold as it gets here :) ) and the rain and the sunshine, I love it all! I have to admit though I don't think I would enjoy living anywhere it snowed for months.

    Hope you're having a wonderful week!

  5. The weather has been all over the map this year in Georgia - I'm ready for beach weather though myself! I hope you have been well! I've missed seeing all the old Foodbuzz gang around the blogosphere.

  6. Ah! I wish I was on the beach. It's cold and rainy here. Ick.

  7. Those are some major calgon take me away shots! It's 27 degrees (farenheit?) in NC? I didn't know that was possible. Eek! Keep warm and dream on sister!


  8. Just looking at these photos has warmed me up! They're absolutely stunning. One day we'll make it to these places ;) xx
