In Knots

My stomach has been in knots for weeks. And will remain in knots for at least another week. Until this crazy election is done and gone and we can all take a deep breath. I hope I can take a deep breath. In the meantime, between panic attacks and sips of Pinot Grigio*, I want […]

A New Year…

The last few weeks have been spent shopping and baking and wrapping and celebrating. And we’re not done. We’re having friends over for New Years Eve and then our annual Best Neighborhood Ever Progressive dinner is this weekend. Thankfully, I was able to take some time off to slow down and fill up. I’ve been […]

Giveaway Day!

It’s been months since I’ve sewed anything. Mostly because my sewing table and fabric are in storage. But I still have plenty of stuff I’ve sewn in the past. So when I noticed that today is yesterday was Sew Mama Sew’s Giveaway Day I knew I’d have something. And it’s the perfect thing for the holidays! […]

Quiet & Good

It’s quiet. Husband is downstairs watching a college football game. Daughter and the Dogs are in Wisconsin with my in-laws. I’m sitting upstairs, at the desk that husband and I now share (!). There are few runners outside on the paths, traffic is light. The wind is slow through the yellow leaves. Our neighbors have […]

Goodbye, 1952

And I won’t miss the broken shelves in the medicine cabinet or the too-large-for-the-space sink. Or that nightmare of a glass shower door. Really, eleven years we’ve been together. […]

The Falls

Daughter and I snowshoed over to Minnehaha Falls this weekend after the “blizzard”. It took nearly an hour to get there (because that’s how long it takes an almost four-year-old to walk about a half mile in the snow when there are woods to explore and swings to swing on). The falls were amazing. Look […]

Missing Manhattan

I love New York City. Specifically, Manhattan. And when I saw this print by Yoni Alter my mind immediately went back the hours and hours and hours of wandering I did this past September. Manhattan is Magic. I can’t wait to go back. Other NYC prints (and other cool places) here!

Plata Designs and a Present for Myself

I found myself a birthday present in Boulder.  I found it at the very last booth we walked past, right before we nearly melted in the Colorado Sun, moments before the 3YOs started to lose it. There was a little table, covered by beautiful work by Plata Designs. The artist was there selling her amazing jewelry. I […]
