a little bit about Lo...


A few of my favourite things

#1

Cooking fresh, locally sourced meals for the people I love.
I'm happiest when I'm in the kitchen making a mess and experimenting with produce from my favourite local farmers, butchers and cheese-mongers. My current favourite dishes to whip up are Croque Monsieur, my dad's classic banana bread and Chicken Tangine with preserved lemons. 

#2

Traveling places that remind me that the world is not only beautiful, but terribly interesting.
My husband and I recently spent our honeymoon in the Highlands of Scotland (in November - because we're a little nuts) - drinking whisky, going on long winding hikes through the hills and generally watering both of our Scottish roots.

Curling up in an overstuffed leather armchair (with a great coffee of course)
and reading anything and everything I can get my hands on. 

#4

Spending time outdoors. 
I grew up as part of a farming family, and spent most of my childhood running around in fields, chasing barn cats and gathering eggs from the chicken coop for my grandmother to use in her baking - being outside always takes me back to that kind of simplicity, so whenever I travel or have a down moment, I'm usually exploring and hiking. 

#5

Photographing couples who madly in love. 
I mean, come on. What's better? ♥
