Birthday Dinner

Oh hey guys. Sorry for the weeks radio silence. I was actually productive this week, which means I didn’t actually blog. What?!I know, I should be spending my production time telling stories about travels and food and how wickedly cold it is getting, but alas, I actually do have a life. That was a bit […] Read more…

Loss Abroad.

It feels very very odd to be away from your family in a time of loss. You want to be there to help, even if it is just to make a casserole or give a hug. Unfortunately, this post is a few days overdue, but it took us a few days to touch base with […] Read more…

I am sure most of you have seen them on social media, […] Read more…

Cozy Breakfast for Fall Mornings

Something a little cozier, a little more festive, and a lot sweeter. Salty sushi dinner calls for a sweet breakfast. […] Read more…

Date Night

After an exhausting day of omelet making and Netflix marathon-ing, Jimmy and I pulled ourselves together for a date night. No one cares what Jimmy wore. Sort of every night is a date night, though if we go out it is generally with co-workers and if its a stay at home date, it involves me […] Read more…
