Every summer I lose my marbles. All of our usual routines get thrown out the window, and though it sounds wonderful to shake things up, the transition is not pretty. I can’t tell you the number of little – and big – things I’ve forgotten this week while I tried to be more present with […]

A very interesting thing has happened at our house amidst the start of summer vacation. Somehow, my sweet Birdie has decided she wants to try “homeschool” all summer long. Now. I am not cut out to be an official Home School Parent. I love teaching, it’s in my genes and in my background: I taught […]

Today is Birdie’s last day of First Grade. Holy Hannah how is that possible? My husband keeps telling her she’s basically a second grader and that is making my head want to explode. Meanwhile, every freelance project for the month suddenly needs to be doe ttoday at noon so that I’m not pulling my hair […]

I can’t find the origins of this image, but that just makes it more mysterious. Can we please all have blocks like this? Or tile floors like this (the top layer, not the bottom!)? Or BOTH! Found via Pinterest.

So it just hit me. It’s summer. Does it feel like summer to you, because I’m not onboard yet. Why is it the weeks speed by, and yet that summer feeling really doesn’t kick in until a month or so after it starts? What do you do to help you get into the summer swing […]

It’s the start of the summer this weekend: Memorial Day. We just got a brand new rescue dog, so while my husband and Birdie spend time with the in-laws, I’ll be at home, in a blissfully quiet house, with a cuddly little pooch. I think it might be my new favorite way to spend the […]

Today is apparently Friday, but for the first time in a long while I’ve had one of those weeks where I could have sworn it was still Tuesday or Wednesday. Where did this week go? My head’s been in the clouds, and in work projects, and inn the end, not paying enough attention to my […]

I love the extra-thick threads and rich color palettes, the fact that these are sewn into tennis rackets just makes them that much kookier. See more from Danielle Clough.

This weekend is full of some high expectations for some of us. The moms in the crowd know what I’m talking about. Mother’s Day comes with so many “goals”. Pamper yourself, treat yourself, let your family spoil you, when really, sometimes all Mom really wants for Mother’s Day is a lack of expectations. You know, […]

Sometimes something a little magical happens, and it can turn an entire week around in a snap. It rained this evening. By some miracle we actually finished dinner with lots of time to spare, and Birdie asked to go outside with her umbrella. I joined her, and next thing you know we’re laughing in the […]
