This last week of our summer vacation started out very bland, but I think we turned it around yesterday with a whirlwind trip to the Minnesota State Fair. I cannot believe how much we crammed into about 3 hours of time – because in the end we had to rush out of there to get […]

So last week about this time I think I was telling all of you I’m not ready for school to start yet. Well, I’ve changed my mind. We’ve had cool temperatures all week, Birdie has been home all day every day, and all I can think about is warm tea, fall decorations, and a quiet […]

The highlights of my week were definitely not the two days Birdie was home sick from day camp, nor was it the sinking feeling that I was getting sick too. It also wasn’t the feeling that I should have been working much harder than I was able to. Nope. Instead the highlights of my week were taking […]

Another week of summer is slipping away, and with it so goes July too. Are you ready for the end of summer county fairs and back to school prep? Nah, I’m not either. Let’s drown ourselves in these links instead, and pretend summer is forever. Meanwhile, round about the internet: The easiest way to get […]

Sometimes at the end of the week, the outcome can surprise you. I thought it was just an average week. But thanks to a slightly lighter workload, and a flipped daily schedule (due to Birdie’s day camp), the two of us girls actually spent the week with a ton of quality time. So much so, that […]

What a week! I think I celebrated my 40th birthday about as best as I possibly could. And being on the other side of it, 40 isn’t bad at all. I’m doing just fine. Plus, it’s the perfect excuse for everyoe to tell me how young I look, which I’ll take – even if it’s […]

We’re in the thick of it now, aren’t we? Summer camps, summer road trips, the boredom of our children, the hot sun, and all those other summer things that keep us occupied. And yet our regular lives are still there demanding our attention too: workloads, house cleaning, to-do lists, and responsibilities. Why is it every […]

I think the problem with being a grown up in the summer is that you really just want to be a kid again. No responsibilities, no schedule, no clocks. Nothing to stop you until twilight. That’s got to be the reason why, every summer, I find myself wishing I could just stop working until September. […]

Due to some unfortunate problems with some links I once posted in this weekly round about, I’m changing things up a bit.  Things are going to shift – at least for now. Let’s try a round about of crafty DIYs that tickled my fancy throughout the week. I’m always finding new things I want to try, […]

Well, it’s been a week. I’ll give you that much. I’m still rather stunned that it’s summer. I know I shouldn’t be, the calendar doesn’t lie. Maybe I’ve just been too busy to keep up with it? I think that might be it. Whatever the reason, I”m going to keep this short so I can […]

I swear I only realized yesterday evening that June is merely 3 days away. And even then, I was surpirsed it was a “week” away, then looked at the calendar and realized that wasn’t even true! I don’t know about your neck of the woods, but around here, May seems to be the month where […]

It’s been an amazing week at Small for Big “headquarters”. We have a new fur baby, and getting to know her is taking all kinds of interesting turns. Meanwhile, Birdie has become so obsessed with earthworms that when I picked her up from school yesterday she was keeping two of them in her sweatshirt pocket as […]

It’s almost Mother’s Day and I’m not ready! I wanted the house cleaned up, my workload cleared out of the way, and some suggestions all lined up for my little family on how we might spend the day. Typical mom approach right? Take everything over and control it as best I can? So, since none […]

It’s May 1st! I’m so excited for Spring and May and all the wonderful things that happen this month. Birdie has a piano recital, and a dance recital, we have a big Memorial weekend trip planned, and I hope there’s lots of random moments staring at the new green leaves and feeling the warm sun […]

If I weren’t so busy with such great things, I would take a week off. It can be a bit of a blessing and a curse when the work you love takes over your schedule. It will even out in another week or two, but for the moment, my head/computer/hands/schedule/life are overflowing! I guess it’s just […]
