My COVID Testing Experience

Mark and I are currently binging Bloodline on Netflix. Oh, it’s good. But definitely not appropriate for a family/kid show. 🙂 I can’t get enough of this nighttime snack…toast with Better ‘N Peanut Butter and a bit of strawberry jam. It’s sweet enough that…

What We’re Loving This Week!


These roller shades come in several colors and sizes. We love how they look on the French doors in our kitchen and in our third floor. This patio set from Wayfair is super cute!
