Slowing down in the New Year

Warm socks, an Apple Watch and slowing down in the New Year

January 5, 2017

How many days have whizzed by this New Year? I’m trying not to count. This year, I’m making an effort to take each day as it comes. I’ve spent the last couple weeks (yes all of Christmas!) totally under the weather and it made the holiday season a little quieter and slower, but it also made […]

Can I tell you how overjoyed I am with this advent calendar project some lovelies in my life are making for me?  I never could have anticipated how much these beautiful words could fill a heart more than all the stuff you can buy. But oh, how magical it’s been so far. My kids have […]

Because sometimes a Big Bang Theory makes you love your village even more

December 3, 2014

Sometime in the past few weeks I celebrated an epic milestone birthday (why on earth we decide to keep counting after 25 just blows my mind) and watched a Big Bang Theory episode about a professor who died leaving mountains of papers in boxes and an unopened bottle of champagne and it made me feel […]

First day of….

September 4, 2014

the gateway to the rest of their life and beyond and the culmination of babyhood FOREVER!!!! At least that’s how the first day of kindergarten feels with all the pre-kindergarten activities we’ve had.  Popsicle playdates.  Meetings.  Go-see-the-classrooms.  Jumpstarts.  All before the real first day ever seemed like it was on the horizon. And then too […]
