YOU GUYS I’M HOME.

Like, HOME home.  I know you’ve all been wondering to yourselves, where’s Hannah?  (False.)  What could she possibly be doing that’s more interesting than the blog? (Not much.)

Despite all rumors to the contrary, I was not in fact traveling the world.  (There were no rumors.)  I WAS traveling the country.  Not on like a cool RV-type old-fashioned style road trip.  On planes.  And uber rides.  And random public transport.  And taxis and shuttles and moving sidewalks.   (more…)

The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap

It’s that time of year again!  Time for shopping and fighting to get the last parking spot in a half mile radius of the mall.  Time for getting red sparkly nail polish on your fingers AND toes because you can.  And of course, time to bake & send and receive & eat 3 dozen delicious cookies! (more…)

Peach & Pistachio Pavlova

OH HEY.

Here’s a thing that no one tells you about summers in your midtwenties/summers when you’re an actual working adult: they are so busy! I actually spent four weekends away from home at the beginning of this summer. The Accountant hasn’t been home in over five weeks at this point.

What I’m trying to say is that it’s almost August and I don’t really understand how that happened because yesterday it was May I swear.

If you can’t tell, I’m kind of flying by the seat of my pants right now. You know what helps me feel in control and capable?

MERINGUE.
