FRYday

Holy smokes this week was nuts. There are so many wonderful things in the pipeline for Small Fry and that always means exhaustion and then waiting and then I get to share. So, step one is hopefully complete for while! We have UEA this weekend so the kids are home and it is also mine and Russ’ 12 year anniversary today!

We’d love to go somewhere special for dinner either in Utah … Read more

And then once we had that done it felt like things have really sped up. It’s so fun to see progress everyday and to see our sketches, our dreams, our heart on the line, take shape. Russ (gratefully) hired a team of 4 or so guys to work on the framing with him and that makes all the … Read more
