Very long story cut quite short – our refrigerator had a leak (did you know they could leak?! well, newsflash, apparently they can!), and this leak caused our wood floors [Read more]

Spring into Denim


The other day I was browsing at Madewell, and I stumbled upon my new favorite jean shorts that I can see myself living in all summer long. I can hardly wait to wear them, and thinking about it, I should have purchased more than one pair. I also invested in another chambray top. Because let’s [Read more]
