California Paradise.

I’ve only been to California twice in my life, so I was ECSTATIC to visit again this February for the last leg of my book tour. I spent 4 days in San Fran, 3 days in San Diego, and...

Vermont Weekend, Part 2.

Now that my house is blanketed under almost 2 feet of snow, looking at the rest of these pictures from our ski trip last weekend makes me giggle. I thought this would be the most snow I see all winter!...

Vermont Weekend, Part 1.

Wanted to share some photos from our incredibly relaxing and much-needed vacation up in Vermont! Kevin and I (and Jude!) spent a long weekend there with our good friends and their Labradoodle, Bogey. Went skiing, played with the pups, watched...

Eats Lately.

I’ve been in the kitchen almost every single day in 2016. Usually I only bake new blog recipes 2-3x per week, but I’ve felt so inspired these past 10 days that I can’t get myself to stop. I’m ahead...

Two Days in Portland.

Oregon, I love ya. I visited last week on my cross-country book tour. Thank you to all my Portland readers who came out to see me! Last week was my first time ever visiting and I need to go...
