I'm joining In Residence and Gold And Bloom monthly link-up, Currently! Check out what everyone is doing currently on the first Wednesday of the month. This month is what all of us are cooking, planning, smelling, appreciating, anticipating. Come join the link up on December 2nd with what you're wishing, remembering, wrapping, baking and decorating.
This month I've been...
cooking: a lot of beans and rice! I'm really missing some of the amazing Mexican food that Atlanta has to offer and I haven't found a place I can rely on here in the city! I'm also really missing my mom's Cuban black beans and I haven't perfected her recipe just yet.
planning: next semester! We're in the middle of program planning for our classes for next semester, so I'm currently in the midst of figuring out a) what to do with my life and b) how to actually take classes that I enjoy and will help me in the future.
smelling: COFFEE. I've been trying to reduce my caffeine intake for the month, so coffee has become extra special to me.
appreciating: my family and friends! I didn't go home for two months this year and as soon as I walked in the door of my house, I realized how much I had missed my parents and sister. When I was home, I was also realizing how much I depend on my friends at school. I'm really appreciating the people in my life right now- so shout out to my close friends and family for being the most supportive people ever.
anticipating: Thanksgiving! Thanksgiving is always a huge deal at my house and I am SO excited for it! This year I'm going home for the whole week because it's also my mom's birthday and I'm just so excited to soak up all the love and gratefulness and friends and family!
