  • Home Office Design Ideas

    Our “home office” is technically a dining room and from time to time we have used it as such. Large crowd visiting? We move furniture to our bedroom and make this a space to entertain. We’ve done it many times, but on a day-to-day basis this room is an office. My husband has worked from […]

  • Copycat Chipotle Guacamole

    Do you want to know something surprising? I never liked avocados and definitely not guacamole, until I was in my late twenties. I have no idea why it took me so long to fall in love with both. Of course, my husband and I both feel in love with chargrilled oysters only a few years […]
