I know, it’s been ages since I last posted. I don’t have any great excuses but the good news is I’ve been racking up some good ideas for future posts!

I’m looking forward to sharing pictures and details of my friend Amanda’s visit to Australia and our trip to New Zealand, as well as a work trip I took to Adelaide. I’ve got a couple of other short series ideas in the works, as well, so there’s lots to look forward to!

While she was visiting, Amanda and I endeavored to make these brownies (as you can see, I’m still on my pretzel kick!) because they sounded soo good. I was hoping to make a blog post out of them, but they actually didn’t turn out so great. They were definitely edible, but much too sweet and the flavors did not mix at all the way we thought they would. Anyway, of course I’m hoping to try another recipe soon and will share with you how it turns out! Do you have a favorite sweet and salty recipe? I’d love to give it a try!

Finally, I want to leave you with something awesome my best friend shared with me. It’s a pep talk from Kid President, and it is well worth your while. You can watch it here (and you should!).

See you soon xx
