Reading List 2015

Amber wrote on her blog about how we both see ourselves as readers, but when you look at how many books we’ve read this year– we’re not really readers. We just see ourselves that way and we should better strive to meet that expectation.

Halloween 2014

Rather than attending a huge party, we have a few friends coming over and I’ve pulled out our scariest board games. I don’t even need a costume. Best Halloween ever? Update: I also ended up making a kick-ass cheese plate. It’s okay to drool. From 12 o’ clock clockwise this is Toscana, ButterKäse, Rustica Alle […]
