I think, as Spring Breaks go, ours was pretty dang fine. This week included the movie theater, the zoo, a big playdate at our favorite indoor playground, a painted ukulele, 6 painted canvases (mini sized), 3 treasure hunts, fabulous fancy foods, and possibly a water park if today goes as planned. I mean really, could […]

I’ve spent lots of time over the last couple of months trying to wrap my head around my new and “improved” schedule. Birdie started full days at her Montessori school – which we were all super excited to see! But, it’s the end of an era for the two of us. I’m surprised to see […]

I think everyone in the northern half of the globe is having a rough winter, at least, that’s what the news is implying. But man, it’s like the land of never-ending winter here – where’s the evil Snow Queen? Why can’t we get rid of her already? It’s putting all of us on edge. And […]

round about: the aftermath

Whoa Nelly! You’d think after several days back from the big event (that would be Alt Summit) that I would be back to normal, coasting along on some good memories. Nope. Instead, I think I’m going through withdrawal. I’m checking Facebook every 30 minutes to try and stay in contact with the blogging pals I […]

It’s feeling like a whirlwind around here – how could it possibly be Friday already? Oh I know what’s happening, too much prep for Alt Summit. You know, like I currently have $800 worth of clothing in my Anthropologie online shopping cart. (no, I’m not getting all of it, or perhaps any of it). But […]

Ok, so really all I want to talk about is prepping for Alt Summit. But since I know that’s a really boring topic unless you’re A) a blogger, B) going to Alt or have been to Alt, and C) know me well enough to care, I’m trying to reign it all in. Though I do […]

As usual, I thought I was ready for Christmas, and then it hits me with the freezing surprise of a speeding snowball! Oh my goodness, the number of things I’d like to get done between now and Tuesday is, um, mind-numbing. But all of it is fun holiday stuff, so I’m working hard to find […]

We’ve moved from the “Oh it’s the Christmas Season La-de-da” phase to the “Oh crap it’s Christmas in 11 days and I am NOT READY” phase. Yep, it hit me yesterday that there’s just a zillion and one things to do between now and then. And the mother of all colds has taken up lodging in […]

This week was a week of firsts: the first big snowfall that’s going to stick around, the first day of single-degree temps (Brrrrr!), and my first cold. So, in honor of the cold, I’m going to give in to the constant coughing and let this week’s top links speak for themselves. Ugh. Round about the […]

We went to Birdie’s Montessori school yesterday for one of their Parent-child nights. It’s this amazing chance for kids to show their families exactly what it is they do all day long in that strange-looking Montessori room. Seeing Birdie bursting with confidence, chatting with her peers, and taking charge of her “work” in the room […]

I used to be one of those people who thought we needed one holiday at a time. Halloween – without Christmas. Then Thanksgiving – without Christmas. But I have to tell you. As I get older time moves faster. In fact, it moves waaaay too fast. Plus, I absolutely love Christmas. The other holidays are […]

November is the sneakiest month ever. It just hides behind Halloween and lies in wait. Suddenly, shazam, and here we are! I hope you all had a wonderful Halloween. My favorite moment, aside from Birdie’s fabulous costume, was handing out candy to a line of 15 kids at my door. I’m not sure when our […]

Some people like to summarize things in a journal: one sentence a day, or week, or whatever. I’m realizing that these Round About posts I do every week have become my journal of sorts. But what’s creeping me out is how many times I sit here, writing this post, astruggling to remember what happened in […]

You know that cliche that talks about the small things mattering the most? I know it’s true, and yet, I ignore it all the time. But I’m realizing the best part of my week was yesterday afternoon. I spent that time brushing a toy horse’s hair, reorganizing Birdie’s doll crib, and helping her find the […]

This is actually the first week in some time that flew by without my knowledge. The slower summer pace has clearly been cleared away by autumn breezes and (more likely) fall schedules. School, swim classes, piano lessons (yay piano lessons!!!), school picture day, work, and planning ahead for the holiday season on the blog are […]
