April showers, flowers, and a stop in Louisville


At this moment, I can’t think of anything better in the world than sitting on my front porch with Javi next to me, the doggos at my feet, a beer on the table, tulips in bloom in front of me and the rain pouring down on a spring evening. I’m home! I’ll be home for […]

Catching up to April


I feel like way too much has happened to write a proper update, so I’ll post some highlights from the last month so we can catch up in one post and then *hopefully* stay up-to-date from here on out! Here goes…over the last month:We made 12 rolls of sushi at my parents’ house so they […]
