So happy March loves! The month of spring and sister birthdays. Crossing my fingers for warmth and the abundance of color.
Weekends here are filled with extra sleeps and brunching with my favorite guy. We made some apple spiced coffee cake and played a couple rounds of cards with music jamming in the background.
Happiest of Sundays to y'all. xoxo
A hop skip and a jump to two weekends ago, we had some Texas company. I love having people in our home. It fills up our empty space and reminds me how great our friends are. Visits from our home state means trips to our favorite Saint Louis places... museums, restaurants, watering holes, and little joints that prove to our friends and family how successful this move has been, and perhaps some reminding on my part.
In Central West End, there is the yummiest of taco joints. And being from Texas, I'm a little particular and slightly fussy when it comes to anything labeled with the words taco, nacho, or Mexican. But this little place hits the spot. Frankly, I could eat there every Saturday with no complaints.
Come visit me soon and I'll take you to Gringo. xoxo
With all this snow and days indoors, it's hard to believe that only a couple of weeks ago I was soaking up the Texas sun with my beautiful friends in my favorite city. A quick visit to Dallas meant a necessary and mandatory trip to Oddfellows. Splitting and sharing fried chicken + honey waffles, sampling (and taking more than my share of) buffalo mac & cheese, and brunching with the loveliest ladies. We had the best waitress and had a ball. Wish I could put this morning on repeat.
We're officially back in Missouri with snow, freezing temperatures, and TV watching marathons. The abundance of flurries and wind are keeping us home, so I've been going through my pictures and wishing for extra days in Texas. Two weeks wasn't enough time to be with our families, but I loved every moment. We spread the holiday out between three glorious days of eating, gift giving, and extra hugs and kisses from our sweet little nephews.
Hope everyone had the merriest of Christmases and happiest of new years.
Our Christmas tree last night. Everything boxed, wrapped, and tied with bows. Countless hours watching holiday movies and rolls of pretty paper and tape all over the floor. Now everything is packed up and on it's way to Texas. I've never been so excited to spend 10 hours in a car!
See you soon Dallas! I've missed you! xoxo
With snow on the ground and hot chocolate in our hands, we spent Saturday evening strolling around Garden Glow at the Missouri Botanical Gardens. It was one of the prettiest sights I've seen this December, a true winter wonderland with glow globes, a frosted forest, and a journey under the twinkling tunnel. . Chilly fingers and icey noses aside, Mark and I both agreed it was the perfect night to spend outside looking at lights. I really love this time of the year.
happy glowing lovelies. xoxo
Christmas time is upon us and I am loving it here in Saint Louis. Morning snow, brunch, and an afternoon spent in historic Saint Charles. Simply lovely.
