The very first day of this new year was spent half watching Parks & Recreation and half sharing a homemade dinner with new friends. I've made no resolutions except to do the best I can each day.

So far, this has led to cooking more, writing more, testing a new set of watercolors, and planning birthday surprises. And more Parks & Recreation (Leslie is my new idol).


  1. I love Parks and Rec! And Leslie is amazing, it just gets better and better :) I love your resolution too, happy new year Celeste!

  2. Cooking is very therapeutic as well as filling!. Thanks for your comment.. Here's to you and me! A better year for us..

  3. Your photos are so beautiful and expressive! I love them all!

  4. Love these photos...they make me smile. There is nothing better than making meals with good friends. I just started watching parks and rec...such a funny show!

  5. i've tried twice to get into parks & rec but found it too much like the office {which i love, but, you know...}
    should i try again?

    1. YES!!! I felt the same way when I saw the Pilot episode all those years ago. Once I dedicated myself to watch a couple of episodes (and not just the first), I started to love it. But, yes, I definitely think it takes come acclimating :)

  6. I LOVEEEE Parks and Rec. love.
