It's not rocket science, but this is probably the best snack ever

I'm going to share my favorite, most mind-blowing snack or mini-meal with you all because I love you. It's super simple, but it's basically perfection in every bite. 

Are you ready?

Toast up a whole wheat English muffin until it's fantastically crisp but not burnt, slather on your favorite hummus, layer with the sharpest of the sharp cheddar cheese and top with a perfectly ripe avocado. Crack some fresh sea salt and black pepper on top. 

Savor if you can, devour if you must. 

I usually fall in the devour camp. I just can't help myself. 

What's your favorite snack or mini-meal?

What a weekend

I am ever thankful for the blessed soul that invented the cheese board. And outdoor symphony concerts with fireworks finales.

And crazy boyfriends that unapologetically drink lots of wine, even when they're in the company of non-drinkers.

And my beautiful sister and brother-in-law that I love more than I can articulate.

It was a beautiful weekend and I feel so thankful for the life I'm living these days.

I don't pretend to know much about photography, but I sure do love it. I've been dreaming of a day that I could take photographs like the one above. Now that I purchased a used DSLR, I can't wait to teach myself a thing or two about capturing beautiful images. Let the learning commence!

Rap Music Monday

I used to write a blog called A Whole Lot of Life. Every Monday, I'd share my favorite rap video of the week as a throwback to the much-loved TRL tv show. I realized this weekend that I miss writing these posts and so I'm bringing them back to Michelle's a Writer.

Okay, I just have to say that I LOVE Nicki Minaj. Obsessed. I was supposed to go out with my friend Jennifer last Friday. While I was waiting for her to come pick me up, I got sucked into this video and missed four calls from Jennifer. I was so startled when she knocked on my door - I'd been in rap la-la land. 

I guess that means I kind of like this video. I hope you do too.
