Contrasting Decor

When I first moved to Florida right out of college, I painted every room in my house a different color. All earth tones, deep reds, light browns, creamy off-whites… and it never felt quite right.

Egg Soufflé for Colton

The first time I made Egg SoufflĂ© it was by accident. I was trying to figure out a way to use leftover spicy chicken wings in a breakfast because I was hungover and I also hate wasting food. So I chopped up the chicken wings and put them in some whisked eggs and milk and…

Getting Outdoors

I live in Florida and I hate being hot. I know that sounds ridiculous but ask any of my friends, I am always in the shade or the air conditioning. But the problem is, I do love being outside. I’m originally from Upstate New York, so besides a two week period in the middle of…

All Time Favorite Etsy Shops

I buy an absurd amount of t-shirts, home decor and wedding and supplies on Etsy. I looked at my order history the other day. Eek. You do have to be careful when ordering from Etsy now since they opened the market up and sometimes you accidentally order some crappy item from China when you thought…

Watermelon Juice Junkie

Juicing at home can be a PAIN in the ass. I know. When I first got my juicer I attempted to make fresh juice every day but I got fed up with cleaning the damn thing quite quickly. I still love to make fresh juice though, especially since the ones they sell at the market…

Saying Thanks (it’s not that hard)

I remember, when I was much younger, always seeing my Dad go out of his way to help people. Especially elders, whether it be holding the door for someone or helping them to their car. I think the reason it always stood out to me was, not only the fact that he wanted to help…
