Happy Friday, everyone! And happy Chinese New Year, too! I spent much of the week house-sitting for my mom who went to Amsterdam on business (so jealous!) and I welcomed her home with these roses. Having fresh flowers around is so calming and refreshing to me, for some reason. I kept busy with a handful of freelance projects this week, and I let myself work on them from under a blanket on the couch because it snowed! Snow is such a rare occurrence in North Carolina, but it’s always a lovely treat as long as people deal with it safely. I loved watching the big flakes flutter to the ground Tuesday night while drinking tea and then waking up to a pristine, white neighborhood on Wednesday.
On another note: I finally shared Feast + West with my friends and family this week, and I’m so overwhelmed with all the support for my new endeavor. If you’re just joining me, I really appreciate you following along! Please feel free to send any ideas or suggestions (or just say hello!) to feastandwest [at] gmail [dot] com. You can also find the blog on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest if you’re into those things. I’d love to hear from you! Thank you so much for reading. Until Monday, here are a few of my favorite things from around the Internet this week! // susannah

Tunes for the weekend
I feel a little late to the game on this one, but I have listened to the new Cults album all week. It’s so great and I keep finding myself bobbing along at my desk.
P.S. I’m renaming this column “Friday Finds” simply because I like it better than “The Biscuit Report.” I’ll still tell you why my nickname was Biscuit in high school, though, but not today!
