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 […]

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 […]

The calendar has finally turned to November and Jemma is slowly but surely realizing that it is no longer her birthday season. It’s rough to be here, I tell ya. November is such a dreary month for little 4 year olds who don’t like turkey.  Mid-October we had a Pancakes and Ponies Party. My Little […]

 Bead Bar Bracelet, c/o Brave Sunday /// Chain Bracelet, Sweet Ties Hair Ties /// Spoon Bracelet,  Urban Xchange Thursday has been a real treat thus far. Littles slept in until 8:45 – yes, eight forty five! I can hardly believe it! I skipped my run because … sleep. And then we had a play date. […]
