We went out for brunch at a nearby spot (Cafe 100) this morning to celebrate Mother's Day, and despite Miles's tendency towards acting like a fool out in public lately, we actually had a great, relaxing meal! And...yeah...Miles acted like a fool a bit too. But at least we were outside!
Jaclyn's big birthday request this year was Sunday brunch from Ruby Sunshine, a franchise out of New Orleans that opened at location here last year (but...you know...COVID has kept us away from).

Except, of course, Miles, … Continue reading Day 294 — Miles v. Santa Claus: Dawn of Christmas

It's not often that a baby makes me feel like I need to step up my clothing game, but there … Continue reading Day 42
