We talked about all the things we’ve been eating, reading, trying, and loving hard. And all of this stuff are things we’ve bought with our own money. None of this is sponsored. ;)


Buy Yourself Flowers!

We recommend the cheap bundle at your local grocery store. Sprouts and Costco are favorite stops! (You can spend less than $10!)

Bonus Tip: Don't spend $50-$100 on flowers for school dances. Rachael put together a sunflower bundle from Sprouts for her son's Homecoming date. Check it:

Erin installed a security system, but the doorbell camera is the gift that keeps on giving. Friends and family have started “acting up” on camera and it’s hilarious.

How to Celebrate Everything by Jenny Rosentstrock

I savored this book. Yes, it’s a cook book and it’s packed with so many DELICIOUS recipes, but it’s also such a sweet love letter to the family meal and the notion that cooking for and eating with our family is really fantastic way to connect and make memories. I love it so much. It’s dog-eared and highlighted and has a dedicated spot on my kitchen counter to it can inspire me at a moments notice.
