Kelly’s husband Mitch and I love to geek out over the nerdiest things. We do have a group chat, but whenever things move into the nerdy side of things, we sidebar in our own conversation as to not drive Kelly crazy. The latest Amazon device? We’ve discussed it at length and convinced each other to…

Chicken and Rice Soup from Scratch

Last week, I was in the bathroom blow drying my hair and Mike came in saying he had an idea for a video that he wanted to shoot. Like right then. As you know, he’s not a fan of being on social media pretty much at all, and I fully respect it. Usually when I…


14 Perfect Books When You Need an Escape

Not too much to report on the last week. Work has largely returned to normal (minus anything in person obviously) and it feels really good to…

Security Blankets

This post is basically a giant love letter to quilts, which are the ultimate security blanket. My mom used to make quilts and my sister and I had a small collection of special ones she had made. And there were quilts and blankets in I’m pretty sure every single room. I always had a couple in…

Quarantine Q&A

I feel like I have done a Q&A somewhat recently, though it was pre-everything so it kind of feels like a different lifetime ago? Let’s jump right into the questions. (I asked these on Instagram!) Sweater // Jeans  Do you think you’ll have a different outlook on life or your industry after COVID-19? I think…
