I had a completely different post planned for today. After waking up to blizzard-like conditions, I decided my best bet was to hibernate indoors. My day ended up being far from glamorous—I spent the majority of my day lazing around in my comfortable clothes, reading magazines and sipping tea. Sophie decided to join me, which made it that much harder to get out of bed. With little encouragement—mostly because I was starving—I decided to get up and make us homemade beef stew. It was the perfect meal to warm us up on this unexpectedly dreadful day.
