lately: Moving (again)

I read something the other day about how the average person moves 11.7 times in their life. That sounds like a lot, but is pretty accurate based on my own life. Thanks to the size of Texas, I can’t even say that moving states has been the longest distance move I’ve made.


at home: honey latte

Hello from my new, incredibly photogenic kitchen! Moving may have delayed the holiday decorating a bit, but would you just look at how cute this little festive corner is?! And don’t worry, I may be an Arkansas resident now, but the Texas holiday towels are 1000% on display.

It’s only been a few days of getting settled, but I can already tell I’ll be shooting lots of things in this kitchen. A large chunk of the photos are already of the nice lighting I walked into when I went to make coffee this morning…#sorrynotsorry

Speaking of coffee, we got a neat espresso maker/milk steamer as a wedding present, and I’ve had a good time playing around with it over the last year.

I’m definitely not a coffee expert, but I know what I like and that’s good enough, right? This simple little concoction is one of those things. I mean, how can coffee + honey + milk possibly add up to a bad thing? (It can’t).

It adds up to an especially good thing when you make it with coffee roasted by really cool people you know. I’m not sure I’ve ever purchased anything as immediately as I did when Bean & Burr posted this description:

Flavors of peach, dried apricot, root beer, and marmalade. My wife said it was like drinking a creamy cappuccino in drip coffee form. Seven ounces of Ethiopian Biftu Gudina goodness.”

SIGN. ME. UP.

And let me tell you, they did not disappoint. *major heart eyes*
