A poetic lead-in about staying inspired, a delicious pizza recipe, and a few poorly-lit photos of our little family unit cooking dinner on a Sunday evening.
I’ve been painfully uninspired lately.
Such a morose and dramatically artistic thing to say, right? But it’s true.
I’m not sure if it’s the darker days or the looming new year, but something in the air has me feeling extremely URGENT in wanting to create and plan for what lies ahead and yet at the same time, entirely tapped out from an exhausting year of major shifts.
Usually in these bouts, my instinct is to find a change of scenery.
Whatever you want to call it, there’s no denying that a bit of movement stimulates our best ideas.
Sometimes this means dining in a new space, walking down a unexpectedly stunning street, or creating our own beauty at home with a new vignette or styled stack of books by the desk.
At the same time though, there’s tension within this part of the process.
In the low, uninspired times, this desire to move shifts to an internal pressure, which has the opposite effect on creativity. There is a nuanced difference between absorbing inspiration and consuming content to a detriment.
I wish this post could teach you (and me) the balance between the two, but this is simply an overly-poetic lead-in to a delicious pizza recipe and a few poorly-lit photos of our little family unit cooking dinner on a Sunday evening.
It’s the artist in me, you know?
On the heels of our recent trip to New York we decided to stay in for an entire weekend — and for the first time in a long time, I focused on releasing the urge to MOVE in favour of making something beautiful out of what has been right in front of us.
Keep scrolling to get our recipe for DIY pizza dough, insight into the deepest depths of our souls (AKA, our pizza toppings of choice) and hopefully a little reminder that whatever you’re looking for is already right here… you just might have to make some pizza at home to find it.
Of course, this will depend on personal preference, but here’s what we went with:
