mid-week round-up

It is finally (officially) Fall! YAY!!! What are you up to this week? Yesterday I worked from the library on FIU’s campus and Chet treated me to lunch at the University’s faculty club. There was legit a piano player and gold rimmed tea cups with saucers. Not too shabby for a Tuesday afternoon. Hope you have a great rest of your week, and here are some links I’ve found interesting lately…

What I got for Valentine’s Day.

This Valentine’s Day, Chet surprised me by having a package sent to my doorstep. We waited until the night of the 14th to open our gifts to each other, as my Louisiana-love had a Mardi Gras parade to attend (of which he sent me lots of videos and pictures so I could feel like I was there, too). I sent him a little care package complete with loose tea, Sharpie pens and other bits and bobs. While I was the recipient of this adorable bento box!

The dividers inside each box can be moved around to create a number of different configurations or completely removed, so it’s quite customizable, and the whole kit and caboodle packs up in to this matching drawstring bag. Wouldn’t it make even a simple packed lunch feel fancy?

If you’d like to learn more about bento, watch the BEGIN Japanology episode on the subject here. Then, search “bento box lunches” in Pinterest and say goodbye to the next 30 minutes or so!

I hope you all had a lovely Valentine’s Day! How did you celebrate the day? Did you exchange gifts with your sweetheart?
