Sadly, this blog is a bit sleepier than I'd like these days. Pop over here if you'd like to know why.

This is the last of my gushing (for now) about Jenny and Kevin... but I just found out they were also featured a few weeks ago on 100 Layer Cake!

The Klinskidorn Wedding

Last July I was lucky enough to be in the wedding of my very good friends, Jenny and Kevin. The day was perfect with so many special little touches. Today their wedding was featured on Green Wedding Shoes! Go check it out here. Their photographer, Ben Blood, shared more wedding photos and their engagement set on his blog recently. Take a peek at those too!

Spring Top Sewalong

The Spring Top Sewalong (previously Spring Top Week) is starting again over at Made by Rae.

Last year my top was a finalist (Hello, most exciting thing that happened all spring!!!) but I haven't decided if I'll enter this year or not. I have a few sewing projects that take precedent over a new shirt for myself and not too much spare time on my hands.

Whether or not I participate, I hope you will consider giving it a try!

New Favorite Sandwich

On my last visit to Dubai I ordered a pretty delicious sandwich. I had a hunch that I could make it even better... and today, I believe I did.

Behold the Cucumber Avocado Pesto Sandwich.

The pesto on the sandwich in Dubai was a bit bland so I decided to make my own. This is the recipe I usually follow pretty loosely. It always turns out pretty tasty.

The bread was homemade too. I followed my usual recipe but added some herbs, nutrional yeast, and sunflower seeds.

Before you close up your sandwich, make sure you sprinkle on just a tiny bit of sea salt.

So good.

Kumquats are so beautiful... but so sour.

Anyone have any kumquat tips?
