For years, my business casual, dinner out with the family, weekend run to the mall, and coffee with friends uniform involved jeans. Bootcut jeans with Chelsea boots, skinny jeans with knee-high boots, boyfriend jeans with sneakers, ankle-length straight jeans with loafers… you get the idea. I think it’s a uniform many of us have in… Continue Reading Elevating the Comfy Pant
Today I am working from home. Last night Emerson was major fussy… okay bad word choice. Emerson wasn’t sleepy while I could hardly function. Around 10pm my body was going into Shutdown Mode and she was ready to boogie. She was happy, cooing and smiling and dancing around and I barely had the strength to… Continue Reading Friday
