Denver, Colorado. Or Nashville, Tennessee. Is it the place you call home? Or the place you live in now? Is it the place you remember or the place you’re discovering?
It’s been a long time since I have visited a new state in the United States. Often times my travel is limited to places I have already been – namely, Denver or Las Vegas or Arizona – and I am grateful for it regardless. But this week was special and I was so excited to see a new part of the country. Tennessee (and most of what I saw of the south on the flight from Houston to Memphis) is flat, very green, and the water is brown. I actually did a double take to make sure I was indeed staring at the Mississippi River and not plots of land.
Denver is my favourite travel destination from Albuquerque for multiple reasons: it’s home, it’s only 6 hours away, and it has great coffee shops. For the first Sunday post I want to share some of my favourite places with you.
Feeling especially festive this last weekend I decided to make cookies, in an attempt to make our apartment feel Christmas-y and homey (and smell good).
I love baking. I can’t cook but I can follow a recipe and make cookies, brownies, breads… it’s so soothing for me. And yesterday, a Friday, I most definitely needed an hour in the kitchen to bake and only think about the delicious product at the end. In preparation for a girls Bible study/book club that I was hosting at my little home, I decided to make homemade pumpkin bread.
