First day of school for these two delicious dishes! I don’t know why but watching them get on the bus and drive away always makes me cry a little. Then the bus pulls out of sight, I dry my eyes, pour myself a big glass of champagne and shout “ CHEERS TO SEVEN WHOLE HOURS WITH ONLY ONE KID NEEDING MY ATTENTION!!” 🥂 Speaking of needing my attention, up now on the blog is a post on the #hideawayplacespace I created for the girls. It’s got a bit of a Harry Potter “cupboard under the stairs” vibe and they love it! Hit the link in my bio if you’re looking for a creative and inexpensive way to keep your kids entertained and look like a hero all at the same time. #thoseheavenlydays #jcrewcuts for our first day of school tradition of new outfits.
