We're flying to Ireland on Thursday night, and my heart is full
thinking of being back there after almost 4 years. It's been way too long. Last
time we were there, Lily was only 10 months old, and now she's 5! This is probably

Cheers to the weekend!

I don't know if it's because I'm working at a publisher that values health and wellness above all else, but I'm living a healthier life these past few weeks. I've discarded my morning cappuccino habit for green juice and my alarm clock has gone off at 6am every morning this week.
