My Favorite Things

In case you missed it, yesterday was a big announcement day. I recommend checking that out first. (Hint: this beautiful blog space didn’t exist until yesterday). To celebrate the announcement, I’m giving away a basket of my favorite things and today I’m sharing what they are.


1. The Sprouted Kitchen by Sara Forte: I LOVE cookbooks. My bookshelves are bowing because I’ve bought too many. This one by the talented Sara Forte with photographs by her equally talented husband is my go to cookbook for weeknight meals, something special and to top it off, good health.

2. Beautiful Ruins by Jess Walter: A good book always has to be on hand in my home. I took this one on an epic camping trip through Glacier and into Canada and could not put it down. The story weaves through two generations and shows you a bit of the glam of old Hollywood. Read it!

3. Moonstruck Dark Chocolate Cocoa: We had a two week freeze earlier this winter (think cold and then multiply that by 10) and I went hot chocolate crazy. This dark chocolate cocoa is now a staple in my pantry.

4. Mini Marshmallows by Williams & Sonoma: Hot chocolate with out marshmallows? I don’t think so!

5. Handcrafted Montana Coffee Mug by Meredith Bird: Mugs like cookbooks abound in my home. I stumbled upon these gems at my favorite Bozeman coffee shop.

6. Oversized Throw from Pottery Barn: Seeing a theme here? You’ve got your book and your mug of hot chocolate. To complete the picture you need a cozy blanket to wrap yourself up.
