Sag Habor



  

Spent a few nights leading up to Thanksgiving in the Hamptons with Benny. Sag Harbor, a picturesque village with a small town feel, revealed historic homes and a beautiful marina. It did feel like a little bit of a ghost town when we were there—I'd love to go back for the summer season to explore the natural trails, take a dip in the warm beach waters, and cool off at the numerous ice cream eateries dotted along Main St. But, a short and much-needed respite out on Long Island in the midst of fall definitely did not disappoint :-)

Holiday bakefests came a little early this year

Thought I'd try to bring back my blog (for the umpteenth time) a couple months before I spend the upcoming spring semester studying abroad below the equator in beautiful Buenos Aires, Argentina (!!). Lots has changed since I last posted, and I've recently become quite adamant about creating a visual timeline of my life. I think it's amazing to look back and see how much you've evolved as an individual through these colorful stories. I figured if I posted a few photos a few times a week, and kept things short and sweet, blog maintenance wouldn't be so tough.

So, I'm kicking off the re-resurrection of my photo diary with an afternoon spent baking sweet treats with some lovely peers and my super rad nutrition professor in our immaculate food studies/nutrition kitchen this past Saturday.

 
 
 

The amount of sugar I consumed this weekend was truly astronomical...It was so hard to resist devouring all of the festive sugar cookies, peppermint fudge, gingerbread men, cranberry oatmeal cookies, peanut butter blossoms, and Mexican wedding cookies — especially when everything's so warm straight out of the oven! And yes, I was that one annoying person snapping photos away at every opportune moment as if I had a serious case of FOMO (but, real talk, who in this digital age doesn't?!)
