My loves, my hearts, my souls. You’re off to school this week, and I’ll tell you a little secret: I’m feeling pretty conflicted about it. I know you’re ready. But I’m sure going to miss you.Read More
My husband’s aunt and uncle live in a retirement community not far from us. On the grounds is a garden, with individual plots. Any resident who wishes to tend to a plot may do so, and a few times a year, after our family dinners, we take a walk through and behold the beauty of this amazing garden.Read More
I’ve been to a real baseball game only once in my life. We saw the Yankees play the Braves a few years ago, and even though I’m not a huge baseball fan (or a sports fan), I had such a good time at the game.Read More
Having children changes everything. But this isn’t a post about children per se. It’s a post about hair. But everything is related, so join me on this little journey.
I have curly hair. I love it now, but this hasn’t always been the case.Read More
My girls never tire of riding their bikes. There must be something so freeing about using a set of wheels to get yourself from Point A to Point B, even if it’s all within the general vicinity of one’s own home.Read More

I’m taking a photography workshop on embracing my inner artist. This weekend’s assignment challenged me way beyond my comfort level: we were charged with leaving our homes, on foot, with one camera and one lens, and photographing only things within our immediate surroundings.Read More
This morning, I woke up before everyone else. I arose at 6:37, to be exact. I made coffee and I watched the sun come up. I saw a family of deer pass through our yard, and I listened to the rumbling of the rock tumbler that I can hear churning away in the basement.Read More

How’d we do it?
Barely. We barely did it. That’s how.
Most people plan Disney trips a year in advance. We booked ours three weeks out.Read More

They put on their best dresses (despite my protestations and the rising temperature) and sneakers (thanks to my good counsel), and off we went.Read More
