The weather has been so interesting this year.  Freezing one day, snowing the next, and then sunshine with 50 degrees.  You never quite know what it is going to feel like when you walk out the door.  It has been kind of fun guessing.  I am all for little milder winter and for early signs ofContinue reading

I was reminiscing as I was planning this post about the past couple of weekends.  Weekends that gave me the opportunity to step away from my every day life and out into the world alone.  It was like dipping my toes into a pool of water that was right temperature.  The kind of water that makes youContinue reading

Magazines, print or digital stack up in my home.  I can’t let them go until I have had time to slowing savor all the imagery and ideas that go into their marketing.  Last week as I was sifting through everything holiday I came across a recipe for a holiday Moscow Mule.  One that was garnishedContinue reading

Ahhhh November you have delivered……and delivered well. We have absolutely loved the extra days of autumn we have had here in the midwest.  Sunshine in the morning and beautiful mild evenings that we could spend by the fire.  Probably one of my most favorite places in world.  There is something that just makes life aContinue reading
