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, […]

The most wonderful thing happened to me a couple of weeks ago. Gaby sent me an email with the above photo attached and said she’d made my family a custom family portrait. No charge, nothing needed in return, just a gift she wanted to send to me and my little family. I was blown away. […]

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 […]

Unfortunately, I can’t find the original source of this rather unique design, but I just had to share it anyway. Because I know your kids will laugh their butts off when they see it, just like mine did! Image via Pinterest.

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 […]

I love to make things with paper, but this kind of detail is an entirely different level – it must require so much patience! See more of Kate Kato’s artwork.

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 […]
