The Daily Birch: Cake and Wine

I'm not good at goodbyes. Who is? To me it's more like, "see you later!" Or even, "snap you later!"

A good friend of mine is moving to New York City (a reoccurring theme in my life) and we had our last "wine & cake" outing today at Reid's on Selwyn. A lovely tradition that the three and a half of us started over a year ago and carried through birthdays and other important life celebrations.

Making broccoli nuggets. Yes, I've become that mom. Recipe coming soon.

Planning for the impending move. Things are about to get chaotic and we're doing our best to stay on top of things before they have a chance to get out of hand. Timelines keep moving and it's making us really uncomfortable.

Working on multiple custom targets for clients' Facebook advertising efforts. Create, test, refine, repeat. Seeing positive results makes this marketing geek extremely happy. 

Missing my husband. He is traveling for work this week.

Looking for the perfect carry all bag. Must be large enough to fit all of my things and the child's, easy to clean, and under $400. Do you have any recommendations?
