5 Course Tasting Menu // Devils Backbone Brewing Company + the Black Pig Cleveland

April 4, 2017

Last week I was fortunate enough to attend the Devils Backbone Brewing Company release party for Cleveland at Ohio City’s own Black Pig restaurant! I’ll admit something — I had never heard of Devils Backbone Brewing Company prior to this event. In fact, although I have frequented many of the restaurants in Ohio City, The […]

Our Week In Pictures // and My Monday Mantra

March 27, 2017

Shame on me — I’m a bad, bad, blogger! I’ve been doing a fairly decent job of getting lots of sleep + snuggling my babies. So basially I had the best excuses ever. Oh, and I worked — a LOT. But here are the exciting parts of our week, as told by pictures: [a trip […]

The Little Mermaid, Retro Dog, and a Pi(e) Day Celebration // A Wrap Up

March 20, 2017

Yesterday, after staring at my planner for what seemed like hours, I was amazed to see that we’re nearing the end of March. Amazed because it seems like just yesterday we were celebrating Remy Bea’s first birthday — but it was two whole months ago! Every single day with little kids feels like the.longest.day.ever. Everyday […]

Friday Introduction //

March 17, 2017

I recently realized that I’ve been blogging for close to 10 years. That’s a long time, friends. Like, a ridiculously long time. So it’s likely that most of you have no idea who I am or what exactly brought me to where I am now. I never wanted to be a mom. It’s true. My ‘grand plan’ […]

Pinterest Fun, Plans Gone Awry, + a (Long) Overdue Haircut // A Weekend Wrap Up

March 7, 2017

You know those weekends that just restore your soul? Well, I had one of those weekends, friends. It also just so happened to be one of those weekends where I had “X-Y-and-Z” planned…. but all of it got nixed off the to-do list and we just improvised. Friday we had plans to go to the Great […]

Smoothies, Foodies, and the Vitamix Ascent Series Launch //

March 3, 2017

In my constant search for balance in motherhood (and life) I have made certain concessions for the sake of time. For instance, we often forego eggs, toast, and cereal for breakfast in lieu of something we can take on-the-go — like smoothies. I’m guilty of occasionally using those pre-made frozen smoothie fruit mixes. Yes, I […]

FeBREWary Beer School at Ohio Beergarden

February 28, 2017

I’m finally just catching my breath coming off my crazy-busy week last week. While things had been crazy since Monday, the fun really took off on Wednesday when I had the pleasure of attending FeBREWary Beer School at Ohio Beergarden in North Olmstead. While Chad and I have frequented The Rail since it’s early beginnings […]

Remy Bea // 1 YEAR!

February 1, 2017

Guys. I can’t believe we survived a whole year with this child! She has been challenging since her first days at home. She has pushed me to my physical and mental limits, but we survived. I feel like this blog post should just be titled “WE SURVIVED!” I’m not even joking. For those who haven’t […]

P.S. I Love JORD (and my husband) // GIVEAWAY

January 28, 2017

In keeping with my commitment to be as open and honest as possible here on my blog, I have to say that I had no idea how having children would change my relationship with my husband. See, Chad and I had dated for four years before we decided to get hitched! So we certainly didn’t […]
