The Mixtape // 04.07.17

Happy Friday, friends! This week was a busy one, and it flew by! I’m looking forward to the weekend, which will include taking Jameson to an Easter egg hunt and me likely doing lots of running after him.

I’m capping off the week with a little round up of things that made the last seven days memorable. Kind of like that classic mixtape you’d make in middle school for a friend, I’m putting my favorites together and passing them on. Continue Reading

Day Date on the Lower East Side

Fridays are special days around here. Because Sundays are like work days for us, Fridays are the new Saturdays. And it works out great, because we drop off Jameson at daycare, finish up a little work, and then have the day to relax, enjoy each other, and hopefully enjoy something new in the city.

Life is full of contrast. This week brought tears, and it also brought laughter to the point of my face hurting. And I’m grateful for it all.

I’m capping off the week with a little round up of things that made the last seven days memorable. Kind of like that classic mixtape you’d make in middle school for a friend, I’m putting my favorites together and passing them on. Continue Reading
