    What I’m Learning

    My Thoughts I was going to start this post with, “this past week has been___” but I don’t have the words to adequately describe it. Black, people of color, black lives matter, George Floyd, police, protests, murder, riots, neck, and knee have been spoken in my home and on my social media feeds more than I can count. I’ve felt every feeling and cried happy and horrified tears. Some people will say this isn’t about me. Others will say it’s about all of us.

    Garlic Wok’d Edamame with Sweet Chili Sauce

    There’s a restaurant in our town that has the best garlic wok’d edamame. It’s one of those dishes that you automatically order and everyone loves once they try it. Lucky for me, my friend Jaclyn found a similar recipe and with a few tweaks, it tastes almost like our favorite dish.

    Living Room Nook Makeover with Photowall

    This May marks 5 years since we moved into our house. That’s 5 years of making memories, 5 years of the boys chasing each other up and down the stairs, and 5 years of staring at our large blank living room wall. From the minute we moved in I had an idea of what I wanted for this little nook area. I knew we needed more seating, maybe a cute side table, and most importantly, the perfect artwork that tied the room together. Finding art that my husband and I can agree on is next to impossible so imagine my excitement when I learned about Photowall.
