Wow, it’s Friday again! We’ve been dealing with some pretty nasty New England heat & humidity, so we’re thinking we’ll be moving at a snails pace this weekend. But that’s no problem, because we are A-okay with lazy summer days.

See ya Monday!

Hola, loves! It’s Friday again, how wonderful is that?? We’re definitely ready for some weekend hang time after a bit of a stressful week. It’s looking like a weekend of family time for each of us, with Christa having visiting relatives from Cali, and Reg seeing her rents for lunch and putzing in the North End on Saturday.

What’re you all up to? Hope it’s a good one, see ya on Monday!

Don’t those fresh flowers look amazing? This image seriously makes us giddy for spring, and are so happy that it’s right around the corner. After looking at this, we’re contemplating popping into a flower shop just to get a good whiff. Perhaps this weekend we can make a mini resolution to ourselves do something fresh? Go for a long walk to breathe in the clean air, eat something bright and from the earth, try some hot yoga to feel revived, start a new book — anything! Hope you all have a lovely couple of days, see you on Monday!

Ello! How’s everyone’s week been? Mine somehow became much busier than anticipated,   but that’s not always such a terrible thing, because it flew by. I get to head home to Connecticut tonight so I can spend the weekend with the family for Mother’s Day. Our family tradition for this holiday is to do weeding in the yard for Mom (leave to to my mother to put us through manual labor!), and eat a lot. We’ll be going to our old-time family favorite Italian restaurant for lunch with my Dad, Sister and Brother-in-law on Sunday, so it should be a well-rounded time.

Hope you all have the chance to get out there are appreciate any mother in your lives – have a great weekend everyone!

PS. Christa will finally be back on Monday – yayy!
