We made it to Friday, friends! Such a victory for me these days. This Friday is extra special though because after my daily nap I’m heading out to coffee with a friend and then dinner with another! It’s sunny and an iced decaf followed by potato pizza drizzled with truffle oil seems massively in order. […]

This + That


On Thursday we hustled our buns to the airport for our adventure to Texas! We barely made it … like, rolled into departures with 40 minutes until take off, a ton of bags, two tired kids – we left the house at 4:30 am, car seats and a mama desperately needing her Starbucks. Everything/one made […]
