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 […]

There is a high likelihood that the latest flu bug is about to descend upon my household. The husband came home with the cough, the throat, the chills. If the big strong guy catches it, then we’re probably all goin’ down. So, I’m going to keep this short and sweet, and go get some extra […]

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! […]

It figures that just as I was wrapping up this post about the chaos of this week, my browser crashed and I lost the entire post. That about sums it up around here folks! Looking to find the joy in the season anyway, and hope you can to. Let’s just get to the links shall […]

It’s my favorite time of year – how many of you want to join me in the joy of this season? The lights, the smells, the crisp air and even the snow storms are magical when it’s December. We’re prepping for the season here – scheduling all the Christmas recitals and plans with family. It’s […]

You may have noticed there was a really big election this week. No matter which side you are on, it was bound to get messy. I’m tired of the hatred I’m seeing, I’m tired of the judgement – and that’s post-election I’m talking about. If you’re reading this, be a voice of change by being […]

Yesterday turned into one of those days. Where I was mentally burnt out by about 3:15. Then I picked up Birdie from school, she has a whopper of a cold, and her bad mood combined with mine … oh my. What a day. I almost didn’t write this post to be honest, because I usually write […]

Are you actually done with all of your Halloween costume prep? Like, every little thing is ready to go, and you’re just waiting for Monday? Because, as usual, we are not. We haven’t even seen all of the pieces on her body at one time! Ack! This always happens. And knowing Birdie and her high […]

It’s been a long time since this happened – but this week disappeared on me. I’m not sure where it went, because on any given day things seemed relatively easy and manageable. But suddenly it’s Friday and my to-do list is still a mile long. So, while you enjoy these crazy links I found this […]

It was a week full of stumbles and false starts for me. Something about the change of seasons must have me out of sorts. But, we will end it with a bang – because in a few hours they’re delivering a brand new sofa and chair to our house! Prepping the space for the two […]

This week has been all over the place. One day I was dealing with this nasty cold and it had me knocked flat on my face. But then yesterday, yesterday was perfection. Birdie was the kindest version of herself, her piano lesson went splendidly, she and I hung out afterwards and actually read a book together, […]
