It took us two tries, but we made it out to cut down our Christmas tree this weekend. Which was followed by adorable Christmas-y kisses. And then Dom bought me an eggnog latte … because … super yum. Had Chipotle not destroyed my dinner take-out with the wrong salsa today could very well be a […]

Happy Fall, friends! We’re totally relishing in the season right now. I love the rain. Jem loves the leaves and cooler weather accessorizing opportunities. Max hates having to put on real clothes, naturally. Jem is thriving at Pre-K, Max has zero interest in potty training and is only somewhat entertaining us with transitioning to his bunk […]

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. […]

 Spring Break has arrived and with that new porch plants, room swaps (my nemesis and constant companion) and a busy, busy, super busy week! My calendar looked at me and rolled its eyes. I told it to suck it up. What does it expect? For me to be on a beach somewhere? That was so […]

  Folks. My days, I’m guessing like yours, are really quite boring. There are many, many special little bits that make them awesome, but for the most part … they’re just normal. And I’m learning, normal is grand. Weeks, when I look at my calendar and see nothing. I smile. That has been this week. […]

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 […]

I’m in total nesting mode. The pre-travel kind of nesting. I haven’t been on a plane since Jemma was one and now, with 2 kids and a longer trip, I’m busy as a bee with prep. So far today, I’ve deep cleaned the kitchen counters – granite tile instead of granite slab calls for that […]

I’ve started running again. Well, jogging/walking/jogging/walking. Pretty much, I’m back to the beginning after abandoning everything I gained this summer from my 5K training. Humph. It has coupled well with starting Whole30 because when I eat better I want to exercise and when I exercise I want to eat better.  Here’s the irony — I’m registered […]

Remember when I mentioned the darling shop, Ella & Ezzi, the other week? Sadly, her mama is terminally ill and there is a YouCaring fundraiser going on to help fly family to Minnesota to say goodbye. If you had an Ella & Ezzi Memory Game on your shopping list for Christmas, read this post, donate $50, and […]
