Monday In A Moment #28 | On Sweet Things


1 :: A Wedding in France – About a month ago Dana received an email from an old college roommate inviting us to a wedding. We’ve received a number of wedding invitations since we’ve lived here in Germany and much to my chagrin we’ve had to turn them all down. Air fare across the world is expensive. Both D and I were shocked and dismayed to find out that this wedding was being held in the south of France in Montpellier. Did I mention that it’s one of the only cities Ryan Air flies to in the south of France? At this point D and I both knew we were meant to go. I am so psyched to be a part of this celebration. I’m slightly intimidated as my French is mediocre at best and I fear that my wardrobe is far to outdated to impress…. but I plan to make the most of it. Now I just have to remember to pack a handkerchief… I always cry at weddings. The groom saying his vows gets me every time! So congratulations to Josh and Bernadette! D and I wish you a beautiful life together!

4 :: Sweet Tooth Cravings – I have been craving cookies this week like you would not believe. There has been a general aversion to baked goods in this house for a while now… mostly because I’ve discovered that if I make them, I am the one at home with them constantly tempted to have “just one more!”. But this week I couldn’t help but flip through my Pinterest board “Cookies for Santa”. It’s almost time for my annual cookie swap and I think I’m going to test out some recipes before hand. Which reminds me I need to order peppermint oil for my macarons! Click on an image below to take you the recipe and don’t forget to follow me on Pinterest! 1) Chai Spice Cookies 2) Peppermint Macarons 3) Spicy Gingerbread Twigs 4) French Madeleines

5 :: Sweet Sweet Luxembourg – As most of you know, D and I had a blast in Luxembourg last week. With considerable reluctance, I left my camera at home…. {shocking right?} but this allowed me to spend some quality time with D. I did manage to snag some picks with the good ‘ole iPhone though… so I thought I’d share the rest of those with you this week! Enjoy!

Thanks for coming back this week! It’s my hope that MIAM brightens the beginning of your week so you can power through to the end!
