I'm Nikki, a creative old soul who loves tea time, tip-toeing through gardens, mounds of books, swaying to records, watercolors, sunset walks with our three yorkies, and star-gazing with Paul. This blog carries snippets of my life with just us two (five with Rusty, Lucy, & Ethel) - I hope it brings you happiness as you snuggle in with something warm and delicious and begin reading. Enjoy, friends!

If I had to choose:

Country Peach Tart

I’ve found that doing something small can take my mind other places, especially when I’m in the kitchen. I love baking or cooking country style recipes and imagining I’m in a farmhouse on a long, dirt path far from the main road. I imagine the windows are open and I can only hear sounds of birds instead of the busy highway I typically hear in our small, one-bedroom apartment. So, I spent the day yesterday in the middle of the Twin Cities with my lovely cousin, Ashley, as she baked her way through a peach tart recipe – what better way to escape the city life than to bring the country to the kitchen?
