by now you’ve most likely heard a little bit about crema coffee house. last year, jp partnered with noah (the original owner) to build out a kitchen and create a food menu for this already highly-reputable coffee shop. it’s been a labor of love and a dream come true for jp (and me) to be involved in this amazing food/drink brand and entrepreneurial community. additionally, it’s extremely satisfying and inspiring to see my husband–who works so hard– finally in a supportive business partnership and have the opportunity to be his own boss and have a ton of creative control, while also getting to collaborate with some of the most brilliant and artistic minds around denver.

so, to celebrate jp and crema and the new year and the new blog (phew! lots going on!) and to thank you all for reading and–even if silently–cheering on our little family and our going-ons, i’m giving one reader a $20 gift certificate to crema (employees not eligible, sorry guys).

simply leave a comment below telling me two things:

  1. what’s your coffee drink of choice?
  2. what food item sounds most delicious to you at crema? (hint: menu is on crema’s blog)

giveaway is open to anyone not employed by crema coffeehouse, anywhere (everyone eventually makes it to denver) until 9:00 PM mountain time, thursday, january 5. i’ll announce the winner the next day.

spread the word. spread the love.


each morning, before max gets dropped off, ramona and i head over early to crema to say hello jp and grab a cortado and a breakfast burrito. i recently had uploaded a new app, 8mm, which i then promptly forgot about. jay (aka, christian-bale-in-american-psycho-look-alike) commandeered my phone in order to show me how to access the incredibly useless entertaining emoji keyboard (you know, so i can text a cartoon drawing of a turd to jp) and rediscovered this neglected app. in this video jay demonstrates the amazingness of the 8mm app, and also manages to document an oh-so exciting moment of our quick mornings at crema.


thanksgiving at crema.
decorated and tablescaped by my dear and talented friend, nicole of hey! party collective.
26 people (28 if you include the babies), both friends and family, joined us for a feast.
we gorged and still there were silly amounts of leftovers.
i love my life and have much to be thankful for.
