two months

It’s amazing how two months can crawl past and then disappear in blink. Time is a tricky beast one can’t possibly understand but I feel respectful of it. For one thing, you don’t negotiate with time. It’s not something personal, it happens to everyone and for those of us that have the privilege of choosing […]

Recently I came across a Pinterest recipe that has stolen our hearts. It’s simple yet satisfying. One day I was craving a Snickers and decided to try and find a recipe for something I could make without a trip to the store for eggs… which would have inevitably led to me purchasing desired Snickers and […]

donuts for dinner

The other night we were out and about when Garrett asked if I wanted to go to District Donuts. I had been thinking about them every single day of the week.  It’s an easy feat when they’re as delicious as they are and your favorite new place makes a variety every single day. It’s like falling […]

home lovin’

The best part of moving into a new space is how it naturally forces you to shake things up. The limitations give you boundaries and this direction helps things fall into place. One of my favorite things to do as little girl was play Barbies. Though looking back it wasn’t so much the Barbies as the creating […]

the present

  Two weeks on the other side of intern year and it still feels like Christmas. We have never shared so much time together. Last Sunday afternoon it rained and we made trips to do laundry and then planted a little garden on our front porch. Pure magic. We have conversations that aren’t hurried. It […]

4th of July

I needed a moment so I am eating a peanut butter sandwich and thought I would say hello. We are moved. So many prayers have been answered. Last night we walked hand in hand and discovered one of the most adorable neighborhoods I have ever been in. It felt like we climbed into a page from a book. We […]

local coffee

I shared this on Instagram a few days ago, but I loved the moment so much I had to put it here too. A stranger nervously asked if he could take our photo with his new camera he was playing around with. And then in a moment of complete kindness he took one for us […]

I won’t forget

Dear San Antonio, You weren’t what I expected. I had ideas in my head and very few of them happened. But what did happen was even better than what I had hoped. I experienced community in a different light. I completely enjoyed living in our apartment and having daily chats with our neighbors and their pets. We spent most of […]

ten-forty-seven

It’s late and I’m sitting crossed-legged in our kitchen floor eating grapes. I needed to plug in Garrett’s printer and all the other outlets are blocked by stacks of boxes. It’s all rather cozy and half of me wishes I could turn these boxes into a fort. You know, a safe haven where an adventure happens and the only thing […]

This is life right now and it’s really good and I’m really thankful for it. Less than three weeks now till we smooch Texas farewell and hug NOLA hello! p.s. whatever did we do without Instagram to tease us with new spots to try out? Loved this counter at District Pies last week.
