our guest room is our “war zone” currently. we refuse to open the door. so that’ll have to wait.

happy tuesday!

friday is here. friday is here.

[J] is off work today, and I am “forcing” him to try a new local restaurant with me. where is yet to be determined. I have a list two pages long of places I need to visit in des moines. what have I been doing? we’ve been living here almost a year now. I am a total creature of habit. I find a place I love and I can’t get enough of it. I must be feeling adventurous this cold afternoon.

just when you think you should slow down your wine intake on account of the new year, you discover it’ll help spruce up your home. so you continue as you were.

I believe in the beauty of wine bottles. and in recycling, or better re-purposing them. as candle holders. or possibly a vase.

I was searching for a way to divide the eating portion of our peninsula from our sink, and think I found the prettiest barrier.
