pine nut and pumpkin seed crusted chicken || the hungry bellies 

this is one of my fave recipes we’ve posted and working with bronwyn and collaborating with her and talking to her is my favourite thing i’m crazy in love

bronwyns asleep beside me and I keep thinking about how fragile it all is. I love her so much and she’s right here warm and wild and calm and sweet next to me and shes breathing so deeply and I keep leaning over and whispering I love yous in her ear. I can’t believe how it all ends up that I’m here and she’s here and we started our story over 5 years ago. I keep thinking I love her so much I keep thinking she deserves more I keep thinking life is crazy and I love her and something is right and I never want to lose this.

what i love about us is that i would have been fine if you weren’t there tonight but i’m beyond happy that you were. what i love about us is that people look at us on the go train because i’m giggling so much playing knuckles. what i love about us is that we go from serious conversation to playing a game about multiplication and back seamlessly and naturally. what i love about us is that life is sweeter by your side.

new blog post up tonight: apple and red onion balsamic honey salad, with cranberry focaccia croutons!

the elusive project that i’ve been posting about for a few weeks is finally here! bronwyn and i started our very own food blog. i love her so much and love her cooking and i get to practice my photography and design!! our first recipe is up now - avocado meatballs and spicy sweet potatoes with parsley pesto! please reblog and share and comment!! thank you endlessly for your support these past few years.

I want the cottage. I want the green grass and the tomato plants. I want the peace in you; the front porch rocking chair lullaby; our cricket legs rubbing together under the covers. We can’t have it all. I know that, but humor me. We can’t have it all, but we can have most of it.
Anonymous asks: I always feel inspired and reflective when I wander through your blog. It's nice and gives me a sort of restlessness to go and grab life.

you’re too kind, my friend. i’m so glad that i can inspire you to grab life, even just a little. tonight i’m going out with my friends to an art show all through our city n i’m wearing a new dress that i bought with heather n i’ll think of you and hope you’re doing something wonderful too. 

Anonymous asks: How did you meet her? And how did you know you loved her?

at school, in class, in a dream sometime somewhere, in my heart of hearts, as a child, as a wild creature, in a bar, on a subway, in the only way i knew how // because my chest hurts when i look at her and watching her drink cranberry juice is my favourite thing and i wish for only good and glorious things to come to her and i hope she wins when we play settlers of catan because she’s wonderful and deserves it and i want to buy her dumb necklaces and her favourite cheese and i don’t want her to have to worry about money and i want her to have a gym in our house and i want her to sleep nicely every night and never have a cold but when she does i want to be the one to get her a damp face cloth and because i want her to have a light heart and a million dreams and a million trips to a million places and because her arms around me feel like the answer to a question that has been on the tip of my tongue for my whole life.
