Hello 2017. I went in for a hug and you went for a handshake. Or maybe I only imagined even that. While the New Year started off beautifully, the rest of the days this month have been out of sorts. It’s early on a Sunday morning and Garrett is tied up all day which leaves me sipping […]

A few weeks ago I was perusing Instagram when I noticed a sign in a post that I haven’t stopped thinking about. “Live a life of I get to, not I have to.”  It’s simple in a complicated way. I remember it throughout the day. It also makes me feel different things each time I think about it. […]

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.

hello june dear

I like to hit up Costco for Naked Juice when they put it on sale because it’s nearing it’s sell by date. It’s a bit of a thrill this way and I feel slightly less guilty for divulging in such a luxury. I knew we would be hitting the road this week and those cute little meant […]
