What are you up to this weekend, friends? We’re enjoying the last few days of Spring Break and I have to say the boys and I have easily adapted to sleeping in late, no schedules and Nutella for breakfast. It’s going to be a rude awakening come Monday for us. (Jeff’s not included here because he’s weirdly a morning person.) Hope you have a fun weekend, … Continue reading Hello Weekend!
What are you up to this weekend? We have been trying to make plans with friends since before the holidays, and for one reason or another, we or they had to reschedule. Finally, tonight we are getting together. I’m so excited to catch up with them over takeout from the best pizza in town and a few glasses of vino. My boys are equally psyched to … Continue reading Hello Weekend!
What are your plans this weekend? The boys and I have been riveted this past week to the #BabyGiraffe live stream. Have you been watching? Any time April (the mama) moves, or chews some hay, or breathes, we all say, “This is it! It’s time!” Since we’re pretty much invested by now, I’ve basically cleared off all scheduled activities (except soccer, because there’s always soccer) and … Continue reading Hello Weekend!

Happy Valentine’s Day! Here’s a little list of random things I love and adore… My boys’ laughter Thunderstorms The swans at Lafayette Square park Dresses with pockets Dark chocolate chip cookies, preferably crispy on the outside and gooey in the middle Fresh, laundered sheets still warm from the dryer Flip-flops with a wedge Teachers S’mores near an open campfire A wet-free toilet seat (parents of … Continue reading Little Love List
A friend of mine just returned from Martinique, and if her Instagram pictures are any indication, it looks like it was a beautiful, relaxing and romantic (she got engaged) vacation. It got me day-dreaming of jetting off to a far-away island of my own for a Winter-blues break. So just for fun, here are a few exotic locales for some destination inspiration. If you could travel … Continue reading Where Would You Go?
What are your plans this weekend, friends? I’ve had this random craving for wood-fired, thin crust, melt-in-your-mouth pizza for about a week now, so tonight we’re headed to our fave pizza joint. (Yeah, no making dinner!) And tomorrow, I’ll be playing chauffeur as my boys have birthday parties, play dates and a soccer game (at 8 am!). Have a fun-filled weekend, and here are some … Continue reading Hello Weekend!
Have you seen this awesome video about fifth-grade English teacher Barry White Jr.? Every day, he greets each of his 40 students with a unique, personalized handshake, complete with knee slaps, hand claps, and even a simple salute. How does he remember all of them!?! I love that it started as a way to “bring some joy to his students” and it’s become so much more … Continue reading Now That’s What I Call A Handshake
Happy 1st of February friends. I’ll be honest, I had a heck of a time getting out of bed this morning. With so much heaviness in the world lately, part of me just wants to hide under the covers with my dog and hoard chocolate, which, when you really think about it, isn’t such a bad idea. The next best thing is reflecting on the little … Continue reading Five Details
Happy Friday friends! What are your weekend plans? It’s my birthday on Sunday (!) and I’m planning to bake this very chocolatey cake and throw a little dance party in our living room to celebrate. I asked the boys, in lieu of gifts, to write me letters about anything they want. As you can guess, this didn’t go over so well, so we’ll see if they … Continue reading Hello Weekend!
