“You cannot get through a single day without having an impact on the world around you. What you do makes a difference and you have to decide what kind of a difference you want to make.”
—Jane Goodall

Messy. Imperfect. Hard. But also... Wonderful. Amazing. Awesome. We yell and bicker and slam doors sometimes, but at the end of the day, there is no greater love, we are thicker than thieves, and there’s no one else I’d rather do life with. Happy Easter from our family to yours.

IG photo: my kids dyed eggs, how cute! 🐰 Reality: I made them put their hands back in for the shot because I missed it the first time and photos with their hands in it are my favorite. ❤️ I love that they’re not too old to dye Easter eggs, and even when they are, I’ll still make them do it.

Sticky and sweet with a side of old school ... and everything that was right with my Friday.

What’s better than BBQ? BBQ shared with friends.

Local honey, butter olive oil, crushed red pepper flakes, and enough fresh garlic I should have been sequestered to solitary confinement... this here’s the good stuff.

No place I’d rather be right now.

There are a few things I can always use more of in my life ... laughter, love, caffeine, adventurous eaters, balance, people who say yes and ask questions later, road trips, and pink blossoms as far as the eyes can see. 🥰

You know how when you’re in a new relationship, you’re all dainty when you’re eating ‘cause you don’t want to make a mess? Yeah, well, I stopped doing that like five years ago. The messier, the better. Who wants to hang out with fake pretenses? Not me. And so let’s celebrate realness AND #NationalGrilledCheeseDay with the messiest version ever, complete with two kinds of @cabotcheese, oven-blistered tomatoes, and caramelized onions! DIG IN.

My whole heart for my whole life. ❤️
