“Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.” What’s ironic about the fact that I just opened my blog with a movie quote, is that I am the polar opposite of a “movie buff.” In fact, I’ve never actually seen Ferris Bueller’s Day Off (I just had to look up how to spell Bueller). But gosh, is that quote true or what? There are so many awesome things in life, little and big, and I believe you should savor them all. I always have. I take pictures of everything knowing that one day I’ll be old and senile and grateful to my twenty-something-self for never leaving home without a camera (earning many a, “another picture?” or “this will be on Facebook in the next thirty seconds,” type of comments from my ever-so-supportive-but-occasionally-annoyed-by-the-camera friends).
Something To Be Savored is my place to share (or if there’s no one reading this, at least document for my self), all the things I savor… the tastes… the surroundings… the tiny details… and the unforgettable moments.
And now for the disclaimer: I’m a jack-of-all-trades, master-of-none. I can cook, bake, photograph, and decorate… but I’m certainly not a chef, a baker, a photographer, or interior designer. For that reason, I keep my recipes, projects, and all other attempts to be productive simple and savvy (and savory of course!). I’ve pinned countless projects on Pinterest that promise to be “effortless!” only to find out they require a three hour trip to Home Depot to find all the power tools I need to complete step two; and recipes that are “quick and easy!” which really translates into spending $18 on a small bunch of that very rare vegetable, and standing in the spice aisle for 45 minutes to find all the different herbs I need to add “just a pinch” of. Neither simple, nor savvy.
What you will find here will be simple and savvy. If I can do it, you can do it.
