Scenes from a super chill and relatively aesthetic staycation. It’s fun to see how many meals you can squeeze out of a Trader Joe’s shopping trip that came out to be less than $100! Granted, I do have a pretty well stocked kitchen to begin with, but saving money is always a plus in my book. Also, these are the prettiest and healthiest gladioli I’ve ever seen! In this photo, one of them bloomed all the way to the top – I’ve rarely been able to keep them alive long enough to bloom all the way to the top. Now it’s gotten to the point where the bottom blooms are a little shriveled, but one week later, they’re still bringing me a lot of joy.
