what I’m into {February}


:: When I went to visit my sister at the beginning of the month she introduced me to Jane the Virgin. I was dubious, but Emily convinced me to give it a go. Think Arrested Development meets a Spanish soap opera. It’s laugh-out-loud funny, and doesn’t make fun of religion or abstinence (like I’d expected from such a title). I heartily recommend this one.

:: Wool socks. My mom and sister found these wool socks at Costco at the holidays, and when I visited Utah Emily gave me a pair. They are cozy. I’m hooked.

jojo moyes

:: Jojo Moyes. This month I read my third Jojo Moyes book, One Plus One. I am continually impressed by Moyes’s storytelling and compelling writing style. Now all of her books are on my to-read list. (You can follow what I’m reading on Goodreads.)


:: Park time. Portland has had an atypically sunny and temperate winter. Sure, Portland’s winters are very much temperate (especially when compared with the massive snow the East Coast gets). But this year, our temperatures have been averaging in the 50s and even 60s. So we’ve been spending more time at the park, and it’s lovely. I love my boy on a swing.

homemade decadence

:: Joy the Baker. Joy’s book Homemade Decadence is my new go-to dessert book. This month I’ve made the brownie cupcakes with salted caramel frosting, cookie no-dough ice cream, cinnamon-sugar pull-apart cake, and two sour cream coffee cakes with browned butter glaze. And this weekend I plan on making a double batch of the brown sugar – cream cheese ice cream. Joy, you’ve outdone yourself with this one.

jane austen

:: Jane Austen. I’m kicking off my year of Jane Austen with Mansfield ParkI’m almost halfway through, and I’m hoping that I start liking Fanny Price more than I do now.

Today I’m linking up with Leigh Kramer! What have you been into this month?
