  • Happy Halloween!
    on Oct 30, 2015 in Uncategorized
    Wishing all you ghosts and ghouls a safe and spooky Halloween weekend! I love when Halloween lands on a Friday or Saturday, it’s nice to not have to manage a school morning after the high (from sugar and excitement!).

    Today is our 8th wedding anniversary! It is hard to believe it has been so many years already, but at the same time it really does (in a good way). We were 23 when we got married and have grown so much together and looking back at us then we were so...
  • Kiss The Cook
    on Oct 19, 2015 in cooking
    I was so lucky to grow up in a house where my mom was a culinary whiz. She was always baking, at one point even having her own cake business, and making homemade dinners every night. It is kind of ironic that my Dad is a restauranteur but we rarely a...

    I am in the planning stages of a little party we are going to have here at the house. We aren’t going to have a huge number of people, but it is to celebrate a pretty significant milestone in the story of our lives. Seems like a legitimate reas...

    on Jun 23, 2015 in Uncategorized
    Once upon a time, I refinished garage sale and thrift store furniture like it was my business. In fact, it was my business. I had a fun little furniture refinishing company and made a good go of it as a young mom! But my dreams and ambitions had me s...

  • Frenchman Street Art Market
    on Jun 6, 2015 in Holidays
    It was a hot, humid Friday night, and we made the short journey over to the art market on Frenchman Street. The music, the lights, the people, all at sunset. It was filled with creativity and excitement and there is so much to take in. I actually fe...

    The bridges here are unreal in scale. I have been amazed by the sheer number of them, and how they work in such a wet climate. But more than anything I have been so inspired the by faded shades of metal mixing with the blue sky and water. It is a col...

    I have done long long mermaid hair, shorter, chin length hair and pretty much everything in between. I always LOVE LOVE LOVE my shorter hair, but about 3 or 4 weeks in I start to miss the versatility and ease of just being able to throw my hair up in...
