Q & A Wednesday, Episode 2: Let’s Talk About Food!

Hi there!  Last week was my first video session with you, and I was nervous.  I shouldn’t have been, though– you were all wonderful and thoughtful, as usual.

A Gift Guide for Ladies

How about a gift guide for ladies?  After I published 30 Classy Gifts for Gentlemen, my husband remarked that he really wished someone would make a similar one for all the guys out there to help them shop for their ladies.  Well. I am more than willing to help a guy out!  Of course, these […]

30 Classy Gifts for Gentlemen

So, I’m not going to lie– I love Christmas shopping!  Even though I’m a minimalist at heart, thinking of gifts for people I love is really one of my favorite things in the world.  And surprising someone with an item they didn’t even know they wanted (but they love!) is the best.  Christmas is going […]

8 Fantastic Cookbooks for Gentlemen

Let’s talk cookbooks! I thought it would be fun to share some of my favorites this month, as you shop for gifts or make up your own wishlists.  When we first moved overseas, we sold or gave away almost all of our books– but we have been rebuilding the kitchen section gradually, and it’s been […]
