Shorty

I am 5’4.25″ tall.

jacket – Nordstrom, tights – DKNY, booties – The Vintage Gypsy, dress – H&M, necklace and headband – JCrew

I’ve heard it said that life’s too short not to wear fabulous shoes, and I’ve gotta say – I’m on board with that statement.

  • Most Mondays, you can find me at my children’s school, volunteering for kindergarten reading. There’s usually some instruction that goes along with whatever I’m to do that day. Something specific I’m supposed to do with the groups that come out into the hall with me. But the other day, the teacher couldn’t remember how to… [Continue Reading]

  • It’s Friday – hurrah! Re-entry into regular life after spring break is always tough, and it makes for a long week. Tammy is back from the Dominican Republic, and me? Well, I stayed here – but I did manage to have a little fun during our week off of school. And we’re both back with… [Continue Reading]

  • Whenever there’s a holiday, you can be sure we’re incorporating food into it in a big way. One of our morning favorites is a baked French toast casserole.
