Sometimes I feel like a girl without a country -- or a state, I should say. It's particularly evident when issues of Southern Living, New York Magazine and Sunset arrive in my mailbox simultaneously.
Sunset is a magazine I fell hard for while living in Seattle. It's all about beautiful living in the western U.S. and despite the fact that I've returned to my home coast (the eastern one), I can still appreciate the decor, gardens, getaways and recipes available to those on the other side of the country.
Sunset's countdown to spring made me particularly giddy, and now I'm daydreaming about hiking amidst wildflowers, indulging in seasonal desserts, painting with a bright color and making a fresh-from-the-garden salad in my home away from home away from home.
