The things that stand out this week are little things: a cuter than cute toddler in the waiting room at my chiropractor’s office, and finishing up a handknit baby hat for an upcoming baby shower. Hmmm, it appears I have a little bit of baby fever? Ah well, it comes with the territory. Now, I’m […]

If all goes as planned, we’re actually in the middle of a family weekend in our favorite Northern Wisconsin town right now. A little pool and hot tub time, some bike races, northwoods kitsch, and some stellar old-school dinner clubs are on the agenda. Oh, and sitting by the lake. It’s an annual tradition we […]

Fall has officially arrived = school has started. It feels like this year we all fell into the routine so fast, and I love it! Birdie is happily in 2nd grade, and she has even picked out her own clothes and breakfast every day this week. That can’t last right? I mean, I highly doubt […]

Our biggest claim to fame this week was our also our summer’s last hurrah: the Minnesota State Fair. I’ve been fighting a cold, and I wasn’t sure I even wanted to go. But we all made it in one piece, had lots of food, went down the biggest slide, saw the parade, and generally had a […]

This week my husband and I celebrated eleven years of marriage. Well, actually, we almost forgot to celebrate it? Luckily my parents called and reminded me! Part of the problem is the fact that we have two anniversaries to keep track of. Yep, we like to be different I guess. We eloped (for the fun […]

Well, you guys, it’s been one of those weeks. I don’t remember what happened really. Birdie was at a really cool science camp called Camp Curie and learned tons of stuff, and I did a bunch of random stuff and freelance. Yep. Such is life. I’m hoping your week was more interesting? Do share please? […]

Another week, another round of errands, summer camps, freelance, hot days, and a fabulous thunderstorm. That’s kind of it really, life just rolled on this week. Nothing stands out as extra-special, but then again, all the little things ARE extra-special right? With that in mind, I’m looking forward to an average summer weekend full of […]

Another week has passed us by – and August is just around the corner. How does this happen? How is it every summer August 1st arrives and I’m suddenly scrambling to do all those summery things I meant to do. We still haven’t made it to the beach. Seriously. It’s not that hard, but somehow […]

It seems we’re in the middle of a heatwave – and even this normally heat-loving blogger has been spending more time inside this week. Ooph, that midwestern humidity is definitely trying. Maybe today we all need permission to go to the beach/pool/sprinkler nearest us? Meanwhile, round about the internet: Suddenly you’ll want a yard full of […]

There’s really only one thing worth talking about this week: Summertime. It’s what gets me out of bed in the morning, and why I keep opening all the windows even when it’s a little too hot. Driving around with all the windows down and singing at the top of my lungs has been my favorite […]

It’s July already – how has your summer been so far? Ours has been very low-key, but I kind of like my summers that way. Simple, with time to stop and literally smell the roses. The only thing I’m trying to figure out is what the heck to do for the July 4th holiday. Our […]

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 […]

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 […]
