Weekend In Omaha

For the last year or so, I’ve been “talking the talk” with friends about how we need to do more weekend road trips to nearby cities in the Midwest. Ā BecauseĀ after having lived in Kansas City nearly a dozen years now, I’ve realized that I’ve hardlyĀ spentĀ any time in our fellow...

2016 Fall Favorites

Happy Friday, friends! I hope this finds you well, and someplace nice and cozy and warm as we head into this October weekend ahead. Ā I’ve been feeling a little under the weather this week, and haven’t felt much like cooking. Ā So for something different today, I thought I would...
