Today, my husband woke up early, and as I popped out of bed after him, he instructed me not wake up. “You’re supposed to snooze in the daylight,” he said. And I laughed, because I knew I’d get no more sleep. Not with “Daylight” by Matt and Kim playing in my head.

  • Some hardcore stuff happening in the studio today. #muglife #ceramics
  • Determined to pressure wash my deck on my own.  First, I couldn't get the machine started (they gave me incorrect instructions, I later learned). Then a tube broke, sending water everywhere. I got soaked. They brought over a replacement machine and I FINALLY GOT TO PRESSURE WASH.  For five minutes. Before it ran out of gas (they forgot to fill it). So tomorrow they'll be bringing me some gas. But if you are wondering why I don't just "do it myself", THIS IS WHY. 😅😂😭 #DIYFAIL #newhomeowner
  • Yesterday I picked up my James Beard Award from some of the most wonderful humans, wore it all around Manhattan while grinning like an asshole, and made my friends try it on at dinner.

  • A friend gifted us this dish towel for obvious reasons. 😊
  • DnD night with @pippinwaffles.
