Full disclosure: My cat destroyed my Christmas wreath.  I needed a new one.   I have always loved fresh Christmas greens.  The smell + the textures + the idea of snow (cause let’s be real: it was 70′ on Christmas Day!) = happy Emily!  I knew I could make one.  I knew I could teach people […]

Despite my double ear infection, I couldn’t wait any longer to post these pictures of my favorite 4 yr. old’s birthday party.  I’m not sure I can conjure up the appropriate words to describe how important this family is to me.  Suffice it to say that Anna (Miles’s mother) is one of my oldest and […]
