I recently celebrated my 31st birthday and my awesome husband took me to what I have declared to be my new favorite restaurant (well, one of them anyways). Southern Roots, a quaint little farm-to-table restaurant in Jamestown, NC, is absolutely delicious. This was only my second time there but everything about it is wonderful (the food, wine, atmosphere, and even the aprons that the servers wear). Some of our dishes included gouda pimento cheese, seafood risotto, grouper with sweet potato slaw, and the very best spaghetti squash I have ever eaten. I asked our waitress if she could give me any tips as to how the spaghetti squash was made and she willingly gave me a few pointers. With a spaghetti squash in my produce basket just waiting to be eaten, I decided to try recreating what we had at Southern Roots. I will say, and my husband agrees, that it was pretty darn close. You really want to make this and plan on doing it soon. Trust me, it’s that good.

Y'all. I read 77 books this year (follow me on Goodreads here)!! My goal was 75 and with 2020 being the year of the pandemic, I was able to make it happen. I listened to many of them and also bought SO. MANY. BOOKS. that I have random stacks throughout my house. Below you'll find my favorites by category...
This list includes favorite things from this year (excluding books because they needed their own post)!
Favorite TV Shows: Ted Lasso, Bridgerton (Shonda Rhimes does it again), The Queen's Gambit, Schitt's Creek
Favorite Movie: Y'all, I can only recall watching two movies this year. I did really love the ones I watched: Happiest Season and Little Women.
