The boho style seems to have some real staying power too, which is something else I’m really happy about. Do you ever […]

Summer is winding down and I feel like the proverbial toddler grabbing it by the leg and hanging on as it drags me across the pavement. Even though I might comment on how the weather is too hot, I still love summer so much. This heat is nothing a dip in the pool can’t cure. […]

Food and Wine, Happy Hour

In spite of all those back-to-school ads, it’s still summer and I plan to squeeze out as much of it as possible. Even the weather knows what’s up (hello, consistent triple digit heat).
