Potpourri

We took advantage of free museum day at the MFAH to enjoy Jesús Rafael Soto’s floating installation. It was quite crowded with visitors and Olivia was scared at first, but when she felt more comfortable in the space, she was running through the curtains of plastic and thoroughly enjoying the experience on her own.

Saturday Brunch with my two favorite girls. We stopped by to check out Common Bond and was glad to see that the food was as good as the hype, especially the bakery goods and coffee. Olivia is getting to that age where she is so much more curious about her surroundings, and with all the tall windows and clattering from the baristas’ counter, she just couldn’t help to stay in her chair for too long, […]

It’s rare to have both my mom and sister off at the same time and as we grow older, its even more difficult to spend quality time together. So, as my sister is on maternity leave and my mom on a working hiatus to help with the baby, the three of us, plus babe, took a trip out to Richmond to visit our friend’s new doughnut and deli  shop. The Grove is a quaint little […]
