Sweet Beginnings

A brunch is always the perfect beginning.

The past month has been a whirlwind of moving into a new apartment, settling into a full-time job, and trying to navigate ‘real life.’

With all the hustle, it’s been nice to have time to simply unwind with friends and enjoy a nice meal.

Sunday marked the first meeting of the Over Mimosas Book Club at my (and my roommate Kelsey’s) apartment, fondly known as “The Homestead.”

Here’s a sampling of some photos from day (from left to right clockwise):

My first self-designed recipe, Nutella and Strawberry French Toast Bake! (And I’m proud to say it was simply delicioso)


Our first club meeting was smashing success! I’m already mentally planning what recipes I want to try for next month.

I can’t wait to share more of my weekly bites, thoughts, and inspiration with you and excited for all the wonderful experiences this blog will bring.

Cheers to a new beginning!
