Good Changes for A Beautiful Life

Good morning, dear ones! How was your weekend?

I stuck close to home, taking time to tidy and clean and organize – those things that got set aside while I was so sick. It feels wonderful to look around me now and see clear counters and laundry folded and put away. It does my heart good.

As I continue getting better, I’m eager to tackle various projects that I’ve been quietly mulling over the last while.

This month was the beginning of one such project that I am SO excited about! My dear friend and brilliant photographer Rebekah Chapman asked me if I would collaborate on a cookbook with her. Would I??? Yes, yes, and YES!! Click here to see her beautiful portfolio and blog.

I am developing/cooking the recipes and writing the book, and Rebekah is photographing and editing it. I cannot wait to tell you more about it!

We’ve already done our first photo shoot and are having such a marvelous time tasting, experimenting, and making my house a complete and utter mess. One of the perks of doing all the cooking is getting to keep the leftovers such as these scrumptious Raspberry Tarts with Vanilla Cream.

Another project is the start of my Rambling Tart Newsletter: Ideas and Inspiration for a Beautiful Life.

It will be a monthly collection of great tips, inspiring stories, and gorgeous images to encourage each of us as we build our own version of a beautiful life. I’d love to share them with you!
