when three biffs and josh get bored, you might find them gallivanting at the nearest swamp on the coldest, dreariest day of winter in louisiana. we're an easily amused bunch. can't wait to grow old with each of them.
josh and i generally don't exchange christmas gifts so our focus can be on our nieces and nephews, but apparently men can be very stubborn. he surprised me with this beautiful vintage leather backpack he hunted down on etsy. how he knows about etsy is completely over my head. stuffed inside the bag was a scrabble gameboard. leather backpack because i've been on a hunt for a special bag that has character and could easily go from work-to-play. scrabble because we get our kicks by playing at random coffee shops across the city. le sweet!

well 2013 was a hoot! so many great things happened this year in memorable cities: met amazing friends in nashville, fulfilled a bucket list trip to montreal, and moved back to new orleans. i'm looking forward to an equally exciting and fruitful 2014. no solid plans to celebrate on new years eve yet but it is likely josh and i will do our traditional champagne and oysters toast, then knock out right after midnight. in any case the combo above would be the ideal outfit to ring in the new year! what are your plans? any resolutions?
besides being good for the soul, working in education allows one substantial perk and that is school holidays. i promised myself after family time, i'd put in a concerted effort to get my groove back. this happily translates to sleeping in, going to the market, cooking at home, working on the apartment, and cuddling with my two favorite boys. here's how yesterday went after my morning run with pup and breakfast at hi-volt.
