It turns out Valentine’s Day is next week, how did that happen? I’m grateful January is over, don’t get me wrong, but it doesn’t really feel like the season of love – at least not yet! Maybe we’ll do a little decorating this weekend, or try one of these DIY’s to get us into the swing […]

No matter how clearly we may know that life is finite, when it actually shows up and slaps you in the face, it’s impossibly hard to grasp it. This week we are dealing with a death in the family, and through the heartache the most interesting part is listening to and answering Birdie’s questions. Kids […]

On the plus side this week, my yoga class was amazing. So good, I walked out of there wanting to be a yoga teacher! Ha! The other plus, Birdie and I didn’t fight while practicing the piano, which feels like a major win. But beyond that this week was rather slow and frivolous. Nothing exciting […]

I’m staring at a blank page and realizing I don’t have much to say this week. The week was a white wash of snow and more snow – much like this formerly blank page as a matter of fact. There was some design work here and there, some book reading, some napping, and of course […]

If you are in the northern half of the US this week, you’re probably feeling the cold just like we are here. I think this morning the low was around -11 degrees Fahrenheit. I hear rumors that on Sunday we won’t even get above zero. I guess that’s one way to bring in Christmas spirit! […]

Our home has become a storybook picture of snow on snow. The trees are all coated, the roads are coated, my dogs feet are freezing and frankly, so am I! But, it is a beautiful, clean, crisp, world outside – much like this image from Ryo Takemasa.
