Seasonal Snapshots // Summer 2013

I can’t believe the summer is gone, but when I look through my photos, I know it was a summer well spent. It was full of so much goodness that I may have gone wild with the photo sharing. Do you mind? Let’s all give a big shout out to summer and then we can shift our thoughts to baking, spices, cider and cozy blankets. If you’re into following my seasonal snapshots and missed any, there’s more. A quick after school work snack. A date with pb and a few dark chocolate chips. Remember this beautiful Copper River salmon with… Continue reading

Seasonal Snapshots // Spring 2013 // Dula Notes

I hope you enjoy these seasonal posts half as much as I enjoy putting them together for you. There were many great brunches and lots of bright spots this spring, despite the lingering cold weather and snow. Every spring amazes me when in a matter of days everything gray and bare turns bright green and the first spring flowers peek their heads up from the ground. I plan on savoring the last few days of spring before summer takes hold. If you missed the other seasonal snapshots, see them all here.  Epic brunch #1 at Commonwealth in Birmingham, Michigan. I… Continue reading

Seasonal Snapshots // Winter 2012/2013

Sometimes winter can be a hard season to love. The snow is pretty, but as soon as it warms up, gray slush begins to accumulate. The warming and cooling of our roads creates scary potholes. Every few days I have to scrub street salt off of my shoes.  If you were in the path of the northeast blizzard, I hope you’re cozy and safe. Eastern Michigan received about 6 inches of snow overnight and west Michigan received even more. This morning I pulled on my wool socks and  LL. Bean boots, cuffed my jeans and took it slow on the… Continue reading

Seasonal Snapshots // Fall 2012

The trees are mostly bare and the weather has cooled. I dug out my favorite knit hat and scarf this week and they have come in handy this week. Despite a strange 70 degree day last Sunday, Michigan is now deep into fall and creeping closer to winter. I’m still not used to watching the sun set on my way home from work. Today I’m sharing my favorite phone pictures of fall. Here are past seasonal snapshots to enjoy, if you like. Tracy’s Cashew and Mint Slaw, but with roasted peanuts. Love. My first pavlova was tasty, but it could have… Continue reading

Seasonal Snapshots // Summer 2012

This may be the best summer ever. I can’t put my finger on specifically why, but I have enjoyed every bit of it. Part of the reason I love doing these seasonal posts, is that I  get to revisit each season as I look through photos and a smile or quick chuckle is always part of the process. Here’s a peak at summer through my phone. Check out spring, winter, fall and last summer, if you like. Ladderball for all. This purse was the MVP of this summer. I made Joy the Baker’s Banana Coconut Cream Pie for my Dad’s birthday. He was very… Continue reading

Seasonal Snapshots // Spring 2012

Spring is easy to love, isn’t it? Everything is so darn green right now and the sunrises and sunsets put a big goofy grin on my face. I sometimes get lost staring at the puffy and majestic clouds. Not to mention all of the beautiful and delicious spring produce, sigh. Here’s a peek at my spring through iPhone photos. Enjoy! Check out past seasons, if you like!  Here’s last winter, fall and summer. Date night. Simply amazing wild rice salad with blue foot shrimp on date night. A beautiful morning for a nail appointment. I am so into neon pink… Continue reading

Seasonal Snapshots // Winter 2011/2012

I’ve been delaying my seasonal winter post because we didn’t have any snow to speak of until recently. This is Michigan, friends, and I feel you can’t capture winter without a little snow. Without further ado, here’s my winter instagram/iPhone shots! Check out Summer 2011 and Fall 2011, if you like! Sale on tights! I like that Marc likes to make fires. I found the best chocolate milk. Took a few walks with my Dad. I dragged my family out for shaved ice in the winter. Not my best plan. Brrr. Dinner prep for a visit from the in-laws. New boots… Continue reading

Seasonal Snapshots // Fall 2011

Did I ever tell you about how in the dark ages I was with my last phone? It was the second cell phone I had ever owned and the numbers were waring off of the buttons, but it worked and I felt it was completely unnecessary to get a smart phone. Last summer, Marc suggested that we treat ourselves to the latest iPhones as an anniversary gift to each other and I agreed with hesitation. As they say, the rest is history. I love being able to snap quick phone pictures of noteworthy moments. Inspired by Tracy,  I created a… Continue reading

Seasonal Snapshots // Summer 2011 is…

Tracy from Shutterbean shared her phenomenal summer pictures and asked others to do the same. It was a blast looking through my camera pictures from the last few months. I may have just realized I’m having a great summer. A baseball game on a Monday night. Vintage ice cube trays from Etsy. Sitting on the porch. Sangria al fresco. Finding a favorite summer nail color. Going to the beach for a wedding. Moscow Mules in a mug. Splurging on a fancy wine dinner. Blueberry and rhubarb crumble. Finding the perfect tart frozen yogurt recipe. Cucumber cocktails in my home town. A… Continue reading
