my week in pictures //

March 22, 2014

Ari + I had a doctors appointment so we went in style. Well, he did. <3 Post-doctors appointment, we went to the Akron Zoo. It was rainy. It was on its way to chilly. But we braved it. And then we napped. Hard. I decompressed after work in the best way possible: Lush bath bomb […]

recap // Red + White On Thursday Night

December, I’ve got BIG plans for you.

December 2, 2013

another CLE Flea weekend!

November 27, 2013

Northeast Ohio is lucky enough to have an amazing group of local crafters and vendors that offer a pretty incredible array of food, woodworking, gifts, and other things you can find on pinterest but don’t have the time or abilities to make yourself.

breaking free from this rut.

November 22, 2013

I’m in a rut. I mean, I’ve got my routine: wake up, take Ari to the sitter, work, run on lunch, work, pick up Ari, come home and feed Ari, put Ari to bed, eat dinner, take a shower, and hang out for like 30 minutes before I finally go to bed. It’s familiar. And […]
