Today my Dad is up in the DC area for a conference, so I get to see him this evening. In his honor, I attempted making my very first pecan pie, which is his favorite. I used this recipe, which was easy enough. I'm not sure how tasty it is, but it sure looks promising! I'm looking forward to trying it tonight. Even the husband thought it looked good.
So I have dreams of having a pantry that looks super organized and beautiful. And then I realize that our "pantry" is just a few shallow shelves in our apartment. I also realize that there is no way the husband would let me invest in a lot of matching containers (and rightfully so), as it would totally be an unnecessary expense. But still, I dream.
While I'm never going to have a pantry like the ones above, I was able to improve our little space by adding some of Martha Stewart's labels.

I hope that everyone had a lovely weekend! Thanks for all of your advice last week. I know it's really silly, but having other opinions helps me. The husband and I made it down to the wedding in Williamsburg and it was lovely. The wedding was at the Wren Chapel, which is absolutely stunning and meaningful to the bride who went to William and Mary. The husband and I got a bit lost on our way to the reception (I may have left the map in the car), but we were able to see the Crim Dell bridge, which has lots of urban legends surrounding it. The legend is that if you kiss on the bridge, you'll be with that person for life and is the location where the bride and groom were engaged (isn't that so romantic)! Of course, I wanted to go check it out, which may have involved a longer walk in the woods than I anticipated. However, it was pretty cool to go see it.
