I may have to turn in my millenial woman card for this… but I’m not a pumpkin spice gal. I LOVE autumn, leaves, pumpkin patches, and all things cozy, but when it comes to pumpkin spice… I just don’t get it. I love to bake something with pumpkin once or twice a season, and I […]

I’ve had lots of people reach out and ask what we did and what we packed for her, so this is where you’ll find ALL of that!

Today’s my 27th birthday, and MAN, has it been a year! For my last birthday, my husband, Jonny, was so sweet and thoughtful in planning something creative since we were just three weeks into quarantine. He planned a three hour long Zoom birthday party where friends and family could pop in for any amount of time. At the time, Zoom was a novel thing to us all, and it was so much fun to see so many faces after weeks of being stuck at home. This year though, I told him that the last thing I want on my birthday is to have to be on any more Zoom calls. I’m Zoomed out. This year, we’re going to a nice dinner (our first date night INSIDE a restaurant in over a year!) and then taking a trip to White Sands National Park in New Mexico for a few days.
