Oh, hey, 2021! We see you. We're done w/ #2020 memes & moving on to sparkly face masks, glitter balloons, party hats & champagne to celebrate NYE at home & virtually.
Anyone else ready to kiss 2020 goodbye from right behind a glitter sparkle mask? Truth be told, NYE has never been a favorite of mine. It just doesn't coordinate well with my 9pm bedtime.

After tempting us w/ its handmade terracotta look, multi-function versatility & price tag, we're giving the Our Place Always Pan a review.
A huge thank you to Our Place for sponsoring this post. We decided to host both our parents for Thanksgiving this year. It wasn't a decision we made lightly. In any other year, we'd ping pong from my mom's house for lunch to my grandparents' house for dinner to Chris' family's house for second dinner -- maybe even to my...
There's some chores in this house...& the kids are gonna do 'em. House rules. Washing dishes, charging devices, sweeping floors – a household essentials list, inside.

I'm feeling like porch hangs where we're all bundled up (comforter coat, anyone?) and sipping something warm (from this great mug) are going to be the godsend of winter. We can be social but still safe. It'll be like the...
There's something magical about making S'mores. We can do it anywhere: outdoor fire pit, fancy tea light or even...an indoor S'mores plate. DIY fun, inside.
I don't actually eat the S'mores. I just love to sit on mom-chair duty, with the graham crackers on one side of me and the chocolate on my lap, working on production, and seeing the kids' sweet faces and the joy that comes of perfectly melting a marshmallow.
