  • Hello, Instagram

    This was taken one year ago. It's hard to believe that she was so little. At 2.5 months old, I felt like I had already known her for years. Yet, I still had no idea what I was doing. I was a new mother, and I felt completely on my own. I told myself to take it day by day, and so I did. Somehow, she and I made it through and although she's still so young, our bond today is so unbelievably strong. 
If it's not yet apparent, I'm in an extraordinarily sentimental mood. This morning I found a notebook that I had purchased when @omgkersh and I were seriously considering adoption. I was planning on detailing our journey for our future child. Looking at the date of the receipt, it read 02/25/15. Little did I know that exactly one year later, my daughter would be born on 02/25/16. 
I truly believe that we are constantly being shown signs, we just don't always pay attention. I view what happened today as a reminder to stay strong during times of uncertainty. Things usually work out for the better. I just need to have faith. To say that she has a piece of my heart would be an understatement.

a blogger’s dozen: emory’s chocolate chip banana bread (hello, scarlett)

IMG_1.jpgThis recipe is one that was given to me by my mum. I have tried a lot of different types of banana bread in my time, but this, by far, remains my favourite recipe. I sincerely hope that you will also try it out the next time that you decide to make a loaf. I guarantee that you will not be disappointed.

IMG_2.jpg Chocolate Chip Banana Bread:

1/2 cup butter

1 cup sugar

2 cups whole wheat flour

1 egg

1 cup bananas, mashed

1/2 cup soured milk

1 tbsp cinnamon

2 tsp vanilla

1 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

1 bar dark chocolate

IMG_4.jpg IMG_5.jpgIn a large mixing bowl, cream together the butter and sugar. Add the egg, bananas, and vanilla. Add the remaining ingredients.

IMG_6.jpgBake at 350°F in a well-greased loaf pan for 1 hour, or until cooked entirely through. 

IMG_7.jpg IMG_8.jpgLet the loaf cool on a rack, then slice to serve. Lastly, grab a few pieces before it’s all gone. It won’t take long.
