How’s this for a Friday funny? longtime followers - you may have born witness to the Matty junior saga. well, here is his November ensemble. I humbly present a half pilgrim/half turkey outfit! Lovingly crafter with giggles and red wine by my bestie @mamanda57 and I last evening. Wondering what the heck this is all about? Here’s a quick recap - we have a friend who is a bartender at @old.northeast.tavern that we made a “mini me” doll of. We have successfully created an outfit of the month for him for the last year. Because that’s not creepy or anything... haha! See both junior and senior next time you pop in for a Wednesday pint! 🍺 🦃 😂

Real talk: it should come as no surprise to anyone to learn conceiving and running an independent business (especially with the one you love) is hard work. there are arguments, there are the occasional tears, but also (hopefully equally!) as much celebration. If you’re curious as to why our social media has been a little quiet this week it’s because Ross Boss and I are taking a mini break in Chicago to press pause, reconnect and re-energize ourselves so that we can hopefully take a breath before preparing for the upcoming holiday season. Running an independent business is frequently all consuming, and especially when you’re partners with your love we fill it’s important to take some time for each other - even if it means returning emails in your air b n b before heading out for the day🍂🍂🍂 . . . At any rate - never fear! The awesome Carolyn and Summer are holding down the fort until we return Friday! Please bear with us if there is the occasional delay in response time. We promise to get back to you as soon as we pry this deep dish pizza out of our moufs. . . . Xoxo, Melissa and Ross
