  1. Never show up empty-handed. That’s the golden rule when it comes to expressing gratitude for hospitality. With Thanksgiving around the corner, most of us will be thinking about what else we could bring aside from a bottle of wine, dessert, or flowers. Given the holiday season now begins long before our day of thanks, we thought …

  2. Do you remember the first time you realized that as you got older, you unintentionally built this second family into your life? It’s not people bound to you by blood or related to you by marriage, it’s a group of people who have been there for you through your most terrible, the people you can sit …

  3. Are you tired of the same Thanksgiving food year after year? While I always look forward to sharing canned cranberries with my mom in honor of my Grandma Carolie, I absolutely love bringing new recipes to holiday gatherings for friends and family to try. So while everyone can still enjoy their Thanksgiving favorites, there are also …

    Ready or not, it’s almost winter. And while I love feeling the crisp wind on my face and listening to the crunch of leaves underfoot and seeing the first snowfall, I also have a bit of anxiety this time of year. Fall lasts only so long and then comes the holiday season. It’s not the family …

  5. This year marks the twentieth (!) year of the Minnesota College of Art and Design’s annual Art Sale and this is the year I finally marked time off my calendar to take advantage of the full experience. The MCAD Art Sale is held November 16 – 18th, the weekend before Thanksgiving, and it’s the perfect chance to …

  6. Want More W&D?

  7. As much as I love Halloween, there are some years where I just can’t do the classic dress-up, dinner party, whole nine yards production. Especially now that I have August. Of course, we are planning to dress him up in something adorable, but part of me just wants to stay at home, warm my feet by …

  8. The W&D Slack feed has been our go-to place for article sharing the past couple months, so when Stefani asked if we should bring back our monthly reading edit, it was a no-brainer! This month we peppered the list with everything from classic comfort food recipes to uncomfortable topics like staying unmarried, even when you’re married. …

    Joe and I used to have fun. Yes, yes, we are still having fun, but it’s different. It requires much more orchestration and patience. We aren’t as spontaneous as we used to be— is probably a better way to frame it. Before baby (and before all this responsibility) we would go to happy hours or long brunches and …

  10. Yet another article in which I must confront a pain point in my personality. You know what? FINE. Whatever’s cheaper than therapy. (Literally everything. Literally, everything is cheaper than therapy.) When traveling, I’m a bit nuts about where I dine out. ‘Psychopath’ feels like a completely just and fit description. I don’t mean to be a …

  11. Let’s start with the basics. I’m a born-and-bred San Diegan with a love for snow, because in Southern California we go to the snow; it doesn’t come to us. With that in the forefront of my mind, I moved to Minneapolis/Saint Paul for college in the hopes that I’d get some chilly winters and finally have …

  12. Retiring your flip-flops and swimsuit isn’t any fun, but at least there are some consolation prizes that come with fall. Other than the cliché ones (fuzzy sweaters, pumpkin spice everything), there is also a boatload of new TV shows to dive headfirst into. To make your couch snuggling season as fun as possible, we rounded up …

  13. Look, usually I reserve the “Man, can you believe how fast the summer’s going?” small talk for waiting-for-the-elevator-with-one-other-person conversations but, “MAN, CAN YOU BELIEVE HOW FAST THE SUMMER’S GOING?” It’s important you notice how I’m not saying “how fast summer WENT.” Y’all are so thirsty to turn the page on summer as soon as Labor Day …
