San Francisco 2020

Good morning friends! This morning, I wanted to share my San Francisco trip from February with you. It's taken me awhile to find the motivation for this post. I think I needed some time to unpack this trip, especially in light of the pandemic. I felt sad thinking about it at the beginning, but now… Continue reading San Francisco 2020

New Weekend Routines

Happy Sunday friends! I hope you all had a nice weekend.  Yesterday was Husband's birthday.  I made him a special birthday dinner of baked chicken (coated in spicy breadcrumbs, yummm), Parmesan and spinach orzo, and a cake!

It’s Cold and also: I’m Learning Magic Loop

Hello friends! I hope you are all doing well. I'm writing here on a Saturday night. I am, as usual, being overly ambitious about the amount of projects I can finish before the new year, so I've compiled all the holiday-related kits I haven't worked through yet to see how much I can get done… Continue reading It’s Cold and also: I’m Learning Magic Loop

‘Tis the Season

Happy Thanksgiving friends! This month has flown away from me and I can hardly believe it.  Work has been very busy and stressful. Lots of deliverables, lots of those ~hard-earned~ lessons about project management as I continue working through this steep learning curve.

Finished Object – Openwork Shawl

Good morning friends! I'm not going to lie, my motivation is very low this morning. I just had the energy for a 10-minute yoga video, and ONLY because my old lady back starts hurting during the day if I don't do any kind of stretching or physical activity in the morning.  I didn't stay at… Continue reading Finished Object – Openwork Shawl
