Neil and I hope you have a great holiday weekend (about time for a 3-day weekend don’t you think?) and we’ll be back Tuesday after our food-filled respite. My best friend Rachel is coming to town with her boyfriend Luke and puppy Jake, so we’ll have a full house and lots of puppy play date […]
Yup. Beer. We’ve had a pretty crazy week complete with work, new freelance projects and trying to prepare our house (and the cats) for another puppy visitor this weekend. Once we dig out I’d like to actually post a few of the things we’ve been working on. But for now, here is our art from […]

Neil baked me cookies!? We’ve both been working really hard lately, and we finally pooped out on the couch the other night after dinner. He woke up before me and was in the kitchen for a while and told me he was “making me something.” Several minutes later, he popped into the living room with […]
