5 Cathedrals You Have to Visit

As a medieval historian who studies secular and canon law, I’m probably more interested than most people in church history. I think that cathedrals are the place to start when visiting a city, as it’s often a chance to see lasting and notable architecture that is lousy with centuries of history! These are 5 cathedrals that I think that everyone should see at some point in their life if they can- from different countries and cities, they all offer something different to their visitors! I hope that you enjoy my recommendations for Travel Thursday…

The Shoebox Project… My Favourite Time of the Year!

My favourite time of the year is the holiday season, mostly because I think that it is a warm and cozy time of year that rejuvenates all of us in some way or another. However, there are many people who might not have a support system or family of any sort there for them. I think that the number one most important aspect of the holidays is giving back and paying it forward, and The Shoebox Project is a fantastic way to do that. Women in need are often left in the shadows, and this is the perfect way to reach out and help!

Peppermint Trifle, Make It Monday

Trifles are one of my favourite desserts to make; they are usually fairly easy to make and they present well with little to no extra work. Normally I make brownie/whipped cream/strawberry trifle but I was hosting friends for an early holiday party and I wanted something a little more wintery and festive. So, I decided to get creative and tweak the recipe a bit in order to fit the theme a little bit better- this recipe is perfect for any skill level in the kitchen!
