Sweet & Toasty

As regularly as possible, my wonderful friend, the writer and editor Kim Winternheimer, and I get together for “inspiration meetings” — which really translates to breakfast and chatting about everything under the sun. Since we both work at home, we believe these meetings are crucial to our creative endeavors. (Kim will soon be releasing her literary journal The Masters Review.) But mostly, they’re crucial to our happiness.

Few things are cozier than oatmeal brulée and tea at Lovejoy Bakers on a drizzly February morning. If you don’t live in Portland, or if you live in Portland but haven’t been to LB, you must visit because everything there is absolutely mouth watering. Who knew oatmeal could be so creamy and crave-worthy? Anyway, anyone who knows me knows that I adore coziness, which is why I live in my favorite sweater dress and spend my days under a fuzzy blanket. I’ve got my eye on these faux fur ones, although I fear that if I got one in chocolate brown I’d never be able to find my kitten…

As you can see, she got the love of coziness from me. (Yes, she’s wearing socks.)
