a classy surprise for our birthdays



Thanks Kell! What a sweetheart you are. Certainly one of the brighter points in my day. I finally figured out what to send to YOU! It will take a little time… but I think you’ll like it.

first snowfall

snow! snow! snow! snow!

Whole Foods was offering refunds, and so we took our box of beautiful spinach back.
