THE BEST CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIE RECIPE EVER.

I know, I know. You’ve heard it all before. But this one is actually it. A little under a year ago we bought a new house. About a month later, right after we had our baby, our next door neighbor & her husband came over with containers of homemade pasta, salad, bread and, most importantly— […]

long overdue updates

writer’s block & haunted condos

real talk tuesday: etiquette-shmetiquette.

Guys, I am a wedding EXPERT. My credentials: · I had a wedding. · I stalk all my friends’ and not-friends’ weddings on Facebook. So I’m basically a professional. 👰 LOL.  A professional in ignoring the “etiquette” you are supposed to follow when planning your wedding. We got married in Connecticut, while living in Wisconsin.
