D U V E T D I N I N G . . .
While we’re all about spontaneity and working with what’s on hand at Cook Space, this seasonal schizophrenia is feeling a little tired. As we wade through every “warmth” level in our closets each week, we’ve still got that spring in our step - willing a weather change with classes like Mother’s Day Florals (and cosy-ing up in the meantime with our Wine 101 and Make your Own Pizza classes)
And, while we hope to channel our GirlBoss and Rene Brown vibes this coming Saturday and Sunday, we may or may not be stockpiling on Dunkin Donuts’ latest disastrous (or dreamy?) menu item to get us through til Monday.
