• Chipotle-Lime Caramelized Cherry Tomatoes

    This week was no less of a blur than last week… where did it go? What happened? It’s conference week here for schools which means half-days (or no school for my youngest!) so it always changes the pace of the week. I did NOT get to my Bermuda post… it’s coming, I promise! I did, however, get to go to a super fun book signing this week for the FABULOUS organizing book The Home Edit at my very talented friend’s store Kirby & Company. Authors/Creators Clea Shearer and Joanna Teplin were so lovely! If you don’t follow them on Instagram, you should! I have devoured the book and can’t wait…

  • Book List

    I love to read. I find it to be the ultimate escape, more so than tv or movies. So, for me, a book needs to be a real page-turner. My mother has always told me life is too short to finish a book you aren’t enjoying. I gravitate to mystery and suspense novels. Gratefully, I have a wonderful book club that makes sure I also read some excellent, thought provoking fiction and non-fiction too! A few have asked if I have a book list, so it was time to compile one! Below find 16 of my recent favorites! Click on the book title to purchase! Commonwealth by Ann Patchett Little…
