I'm taking a brief break from recipes today to share a special Mother's Day post that's been on my heart for awhile. Do you ever feel like you have a mean girl in your head? Sometimes I feel like Regina George is resting on my shoulder, pointing out my flaws, and reminding me of all the ways I don't stack up. The things we say to ourselves in our heads are often far worse than anything we'd say to another human being. And you know what? I'm tired of listening to the mean girl in my head.

Thanks for reading along and I'll be back with more recipes next week!

The annual Gifts that Give Back Guide is one of my favorite posts of the year. This year, I've included loads of ideas for meaningful, unique, and lovely gifts for everyone on your list.

I'm bringing a tender heart and these Red Wine Baked Mushrooms with Crispy Parmesan to the table today. I hope you'll pull up a chair and join me.
Alright, y'all, I promise we'll be back to your regularly scheduled recipes next week, but I had one more baby related post to share as we wrap up this first year of parenthood. We are decidedly less-is-more parents on the whole. I remember looking at the giant baby checklists offered by baby stores and feeling Read More
