I don’t know about you guys, but I’m preeeeetty impressed with myself any time I ride a bike anywhere.

Imagine biking across the country! Like, THOUSANDS OF MILES. Today, Sarah is telling us how she’s doing just that!


Web Time Wasters

How was your week, friends? I met my high-powered ladies for breakfast, enjoyed a bit of boating + ice cream-eating and today Kenny and I are leaving on a five-day, four-night roadtrip around Wisconsin to see more of our beloved supper clubs. Follow along on Instagram if you’re interested in photos of old fashioneds and au gratin potatoes. 😉

P.S. Don’t worry, Mom. I didn’t just tell the internet our house will be empty for a week. WE GOT A HOUSESITTER FORPETESAKE.
