Well, well! It's that time of the year - right after the holidays & around Valentine's Day, boyfriends are popping the question! All of a sudden you are a bride! It is such a beautiful time - but it can also be overwhelming. I (JP) remember this season so well. There is so much to do, a budget to keep in mind, & most importantly - you are planning for a day that you will remember for the rest of your lives. This is NO small endeavor.

We love our table & the stories that come with it! And by golly -- we want to celebrate our table! We want to invite you into the celebration with us by sharing some of our favorite recipes from our table & hope that they make it to yours. Today we are sharing one of our very favorite desserts - one that we definitely can't live without!Read More
It's the hardest thing to do & yet one of the greatest joys of being human - REST! Particularly around the holidays we feel the tug of "we need to finish this, yet - we know we should also rest". What does this look like practically? Goodness. We ask others for accountability, we close our office door, & we even put our phones away. Setting our business down like this is terrifying & freeing simultaneously. It means a conscious decision to not work on growing our business. This upcoming season has only emphasized our joy & fear; but we know what we need to do. As we welcome a new family member into our home in the next few weeks, we are planning on intentionally taking time off to be fully present with our child. But don't worry - we will be back!
Here is what January & February will look like for us:Read More
