Food Comas and Chocolate Bunnies…

Do food comas typically last 48 hours? If you’ve ever spent a holiday at my mom’s house with my family- you’ll see that they most certainly can and often do. After last year’s Easter dinner- a beloved tradition for my brothers and I for as long as I can remember- was canceled due to the […]

A Year to Remember: 2020

JUMANJI! When I launched “Coffee & Chiffon” on New Year’s Day this past January, I had the best of intentions and the most ambitious of goals. This year was the start of both a new decade and a new chapter in my life that I was excited to document on a brand new blog. I […]

2020 Resolutions Check-In

Although the halfway point of 2020 isn’t until the very beginning of July, around this time I like to pause and take a moment to reflect on the first half of the year thus far- and revisit the resolutions I had set for myself to better track my progress with obtaining my goals as we […]
