Jeep Jeep

Me and Dan my man took a jeep drive today. 
I think we seriously underestimated the intensity/longevity of the drive. 
Nevertheless, sun shine, pretty leaves, and hubby were enough to bring a smile on my face all day. 
Plus it's exciting to have something to take pictures of. 
My desk at the library is not as photogenic.

The need to create

Since law school started I've found myself reading and reading and reading and reading. Occasionally i've had the good fortune of getting outside for a run or bike ride. But one thing has surely been lacking in my life, and that is fulfilling the need I have to create.
So tonight I baked chocolate chip cookies... thats a creation right?
And then I spent some time working on my photography blog: here
And then I spent a good amount of time playing guitar.

Music, food, photog. All I need. And the beach would be nice... 3 more years.

Momma Brown in the house

Momma Brown came to visit about one month ago. We hiked, we ate, we played cards, we stayed up late, we giggled.
We miss you mommy brown! come back please.

Lessons from baking chocolate chip cookies

Never lick your fingers if you spill vanilla on them. Never.
Salt and sugar are different. Don't mix them up. Not that I've done it.

 5. There is no such thing as too many chocolate chips.

 When in doubt, add coconut.
 Balance is key. Not too long in the oven, not too short.
 Always use cold butter.
But if you don't and your cookies turn out flat, you can always put them in your ice cream.
