It’s hard to believe that July is almost over already, but summer produce is definitely still in full swing!

Moving Madness

Hey guys! We are coming up for air after spending the past 5 days in the midst of moving madness.  We are now at the point where the kitchen and Riese's room are all set up and pretty much done! The rest of the house is a total mess, but we are getting there. :)  The movers came on Thursday so we spent Thursday, Friday, and the Continue Reading …

Nostalgic

I always get nostalgic for something before it has actually changed - does anyone else feel that way?  This was our last week in our first home, and all week I found myself already feeling super nostalgic for certain things when I was actually still living them.  Like playing in the field near our house after dinner with Riese and Continue Reading …

Waterlogged

Hey friends! Matt and I kicked off our weekend on Friday our usual fave way - with nachos + happy hour at Screwtop in Clarendon.  Riese was a bittttt of a hot mess so we didn't have a long, leisurely happy hour, but it was still a lot of fun. :) I love our Friday tradition! We spent the rest of the night on the couch watching the new Continue Reading …

Salt + Sand

Hey friends! I'm back for my final Outer Banks beach vacation recap.  If you missed my first two beach updates, they are here: Making Waves + 4th of July in Duck, OBX.  Vacation with a toddler wasn't exactly relaxing like vacation used to be, but it was definitely a lot of fun. :) We got back to DC on Sunday and are now Continue Reading …
