while I was away: Prague

I mentioned on Twitter that I felt like my trip was the "YA Tour of Europe." For the entire week I was in Scotland, I kept thinking about CODE NAME VERITY. In Prague, it was completely impossible to not be thinking about DAUGHTER OF SMOKE AND BONE. 
It was every bit as cool as Laini Taylor said.

baking adventures

Tomorrow is the 24th of July in Utah, which is a state holiday commemorating the day that Mormon pioneers arrived in the Salt Lake Valley. Tonight the Roommate and I are prepping to bake a series of pies, including blackberry and paprika peach. It's somewhat of an annual tradition -- what summer celebrations have you guys been up to lately?

The view from the top of the Wallace Monument. Over my shoulder is where the Battle of Stirling Bridge took place.
