Fresh Flowers

I absolutely LOVE having fresh flowers in my house. They are so pretty and so colorful… they make me happy. A bunch of cheery sunflowers can brighten up a room and an aromatic bunch of peonies can bring some elegance to the center of a table.  Peonies are so beautiful! I love that these are in a simple mason jar. Just a note about peonies; the lighter the peony color…

Food Journey: North

This might be my favorite sandwich of all time.  The Braised Short Rib sandwich from North Restaurant is pure heaven. It is an off the menu item. There is so much flavor packed in the braised short rib, you don’t even need the side of mustard.  The lightly steamed broccoli and prosciutto was the perfect, refreshingly zesty side dish.  I get emotional just thinking about this sandwich.  North, do yourself…

The Five-Spice Pork Belly sandwich includes jalapeno slaw and sriracha on a toasted bun.  Down House recently received rave reviews from Houston food critic, Alison Cook.  My favorite factoid of the day: Down House was named after the home of Charles Darwin.  They hand you the check stuffed in a Charles Darwin book.  How cool is that!  The wait staff is extra friendly.  Stop by and have their southern homage…

Chevron Design

I was inspired to do this blog post by my friends curtains. I was at her house the other day (the cutest house I might add) and she had recently put up some green and white chevron (zig-zag) patterned curtains in her dining room. They looked amazing! They added a great pop of color to the room and the chevron pattern is eye catching but not overpowering AND she made…
