Marriage is about compromise, right?



The Brit really wants a dog. I can barely keep a pet rock alive. So, we compromised and bought a little herb garden for our patio.

I know it’s only the first day, and I don’t mean to brag, but everything is still alive. That’s a major win in my books.



‘Adulting’ at its finest



It’s well¬†over 24 hours before our first dinner party in our new place (of what we hope will be many!) and I’ve already got the table set and the wine chilling in the fridge.

If you had told me 15 years ago that hosting a dinner party and using new place mats and cutlery would make me this excited, I would have laughed in your face.

From burning poptarts and improperly boiling eggs to hosting dinner parties at home ¬†where I actually cook half-decent food and have a couple signature dishes – I’ve come a long way in three short years. Who knew being an adult was this much fun?
