3 cute & affordable kitchen accessories

So this weekend we did a thing. It was 57º and sunny– a rarity, apparently, this time of year & so the minute we were done with breakfast, Anthony and I left to go to one of the outdoor malls we hadn’t been to since 2014. Thanks to about seven star dashes on the Starbucks […]
