friday inspiration: keep on the sunny side

This week has been a little rough.  It was my first full week of school that hasn't been broken up by snow days or long weekends.  On top of that it's been raining non-stop and I've come down with a nasty cold.  During this dark and chilly time of the year, I think that we all need a little bit of cheering up and sunshine.  This week's Friday Inspiration centers around things that I think will bring a little bit of sunshine to all of our lives.

meal inspiration -- this week my mom bought the most perfect avocados.  I love eating them mashed on crunchy toasted bread with a drizzle of walnut oil and a sprinkling of Maldon flaked salt.

baking inspiration  -- Recently, I've been obsessed with French entrements (recipe coming soon!). They're so involved and adorable, and so satisfying to make.

~from U Try It~

backyard inspiration-- I am resolving to spend more time outside this spring.  I have a tiny backyard compared to this one, but I really want to clean it up and make it more livable.
