Perfect Summer Meal (for the Girls)

Every week, my two best friends and I enjoy a homemade dinner together. We rotate houses each time, and although we love trying new and daring recipes, there are a few staples that just keep coming back into the rotation. And we’re totally okay with that. One of our favorites that we can’t get enough […]

A Memorable Weekend

Oh three-day weekends, how lovely you are. I am still basking in the glory of it, trying to hold onto every ounce of relaxation it brought. And even though the Mr wasn’t here to enjoy it with me, I am so thankful for the service that he and thousands of other men and women, past […]

Sound Check: Who’s Lovin’ You

Here’s a sweet subway performance by Michael Bublé. How cool would it be to step out of a subway car and get your own impromptu concert? This busy weekend will include editing a best friend’s wedding video (four years later, eesh!), taking a barre class, clocking some serious beach time, running this race, and of course a […]

Isn’t that fascinating? Whether or not this is true for blogging, […]

Out-of-Towners

I love playing hostess to people from out of town; not only do you get to spend time with people you love who you don’t see often, but it’s such a refreshing way to fall in love with your city all over again. Last week my lovely parents came for a visit – here’s a […]

Dating

The other night when the Mr and I were out to dinner, we started talking about some of the quirks we’ve observed about each other, that maybe we didn’t know about ourselves. He told me something I was completely unaware of. Apparently, when I’m in a large group in friendly conversation and am trying to […]

Unbelievable Places

Can you believe these places exist? Neither can I. Which ones would you visit if you could? Lake Retba, Senegal / Salar de Uyuni Salt Flat Mirrors, Bolivia / Tunnel of Love, Ukraine / Lavender Fields, UK / Naica Mine, Mexico I sometimes look into the endless heavens, the cosmos of which we can’t find the edge, […]

The Best Fudge You’ll Ever Have

I should start off by saying that I have an ENORMOUS sweet tooth. In fact, all of the teeth in my head might possibly be sweet. And while I enjoy most sweet things, there are a few treats out there (like this and this) that straight up turn me into a five-year old who has […]
