Chilly Pets...

 Fitz and Jordan definitely have an opinion about this cold snap! 
I can't get enough blankets on these two and they have been cuddled up for hours.

All the Holiday Feels...

 Things are feeling merry and bright around here again this year. I love nothing more than seeing these two in the glow of the our Christmas tree.

A Dreamy Dining Room...

 One of the perks of doing the type of work I do is getting to share some pretty beautiful spaces with equally excellent folks. I had the opportunity to serve a meal in a private residence this week-end where guests dined in not one, but three separate dining rooms. The home was hands down one of the most beautiful I have ever been in, but the formal dining room, brimming with holiday spirit, may have been my favorite dining room I've ever had the honor of serving a meal in.
Of course, the other two dining rooms were not shabby either. I just adore the holidays!

MN Banh Mi...

College recruiting visits took Finn and me to the heart of Minneapolis this week-end. After leaving Finn in the hands of the Augsburg University soccer team members, I took myself on a solo drive around the city. Minneapolis is lovely and so was the banh mi sandwich I treated myself to at Lu's Sandwiches on Eat Street. This sandwich would have been worth the drive on its own, but it turns out Finn had a downright fabulous time with the Auggies!

Winter Week-end Get Away...

For the third year running Leif and I escaped to the Thorpe House Inn and Cottages in Door County, Wisconsin for a little winter time rest and relaxation. We totally enjoy our quiet cottage, but also LOVE seeing all the friends we've made attending these dinners over the years. Can't wait to visit again!
