9. CULINARY CORNER: It’s asparagus time. Here’s an easy and delicious recipe I’ve been making. Preheat your oven to 425°. Put 1 lb of washed and trimmed asparagus on a rimmed baking sheet. In a bowl, combine 3TBS olive oil and 1- 1/2 TBS minced garlic and pour over asparagus. Toss to combine and salt and pepper liberally. Bake for 10-15 minutes until the asparagus is not quite done. Meanwhile, mix 1 cup grated Mozzarella cheese and 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese together in a bowl. Take the asparagus out of the oven and sprinkle it with cheese, leaving the tops and the end without the cheese. Broil the asparagus until the cheese is melted and golden. Serve immediately.

7. One of my favorite ways to decorate for spring after Easter is by bringing the outdoors in using garden decor indoors.

This patio conversation set is also awesome and very affordable. If you prefer a single outdoor sofa, this one is lovely, and this chic teak dining set rounds out the package.

1.) Mother’s Day is coming soon! No matter how you celebrate, remembering the special women in your life is always a good thing. See all the ideas HERE.

2.) I just curated a special collection of Amazon finds for your outdoor spaces. See everything HERE!

3.) FAVORITE QUOTE: “No matter what you do, someone will always talk about you. Someone will always question your judgement. Someone will always doubt you. So just smile and make choices you can live with.” ~Power of Positivity

4.) COTTAGE LOVERS: See how this Nantucket cottage added two showers without changing the original footprint, and see the amazing before and after pictures of this North Carolina cottage that was renovated by the owners on the weekends!

5.) If you wish summer would hurry up and get here, take a look at this 1920’s colorful and happy coastal cottage. It’s airy, beachy, and so functional that you will want to move right in!

6.) BESTSELLERS:

7.)  SPLURGE OR SAVE: would you rather have this beautiful coastal blue lamp, or this one for way less money? This French grey Le Creuset dutch oven is absolutely gorgeous…but this one from Martha Stewart is amazing too! Would you splurge on this set of neutral melamine dinnerware…or would be just as happy with this budget-friendly set?

8.) Are you wishing for easy dinner ideas? One of the easiest ways to make a complete dinner is on a sheet pan. This pork tenderloin recipe is one of our favorites, and this Meyer lemon chicken idea is equally as good. If you want to roast just veggies, check out this sheet pan vegetable medley.

9.) That’s it for me. I mentioned on Saturday that my computer had crashed. Turns out it was not fixable, so I had to admit defeat, and buy a new one. Hopefully very soon I will be up and running again, with new content coming your way. Thank you so much for your patience! XO
