Ah...Grief Happens...but so does joy! I've missed you guys! I have so much I want to share, but alas, I'm the type who thrives only if I get my 8 hours of sleep, eat my veggies and healthy fats, and move my ass on the regular. I've been quite busy with some of my other … Continue reading A Mini Update and Advice Gleaned from Jane Austen

I feel strongly that I should warn you about the nature of this post. It's a whiney, first-world rant of the largest degree. Move forward at your own risk. I'm in a bitch of a mood. It started at 6:30 this morning when Wallace jumped on Pier's head. Piers slept in my room last night … Continue reading Post-Holiday Funk
Where to begin . . . I realized on Tuesday, during the bewitching hour (that would be anytime from 5ish pm until my little ones are deeply slumbering), that Wednesday was a holiday. Which means. . . NO SCHOOL! I'm slowing getting used to a new school schedule that's vastly different from our former school … Continue reading Parenting Is Like That Old-School Rap Song From Eighth Grade
Did you notice I didn't give a specific time that I'd make the muffin recipe? That's because I know myself. It's taken forty years, but I'm slowly learning to set myself up for success by understanding that life happens and we have to work around the everyday minutiae. I wanted to tell you I'd make … Continue reading Thoughts on Superfood Muffins — A Follow-up
For November, I plan to use this space to try out different things, like recipes or going to a new place to have my car serviced, finish my holiday shopping, anything really that I need motivation and accountability to DO. Action. I get bogged down and think too much this time of year, and procrastination … Continue reading Action For November: Superfood Muffin Recipe
I ran across a post on Facebook several days ago that I can't stop thinking about. Tim Lawrence sums up my numerous thoughts and emotions on grieving in this eloquent and thoughtful post. I could blast out THOUSANDS of words on the subject, and I could tell you all the ignorant and thoughtless cliches I … Continue reading Some Things Can’t Be Fixed, and That’s Okay
I consider myself a people person. I like people. They spark my curiosity, and I want to know their stories. What made them think a certain way about something? Who were their parents? What have they seen? What joys have they known? What pains? Sometimes this is easier with strangers than with those we love … Continue reading I’m Turning Relatives Into Trees for Christmas — Want to Join Me?
I just ran across this list. Check it out. http://www.buzzfeed.com/sarahgalo/books-every-college-grad-needs-to-read?bffb&utm_term=4ldqpgp#4ldqpgp How many of these have you read? Which ones spark your interest? Happy Weekend! Gil, Piers, Wallace and I are heading to my cousin's wedding in Atlanta, and as is the family custom, it's going to be entertaining. I miss all my blogging pals. I'll … Continue reading I Want to Hibernate and Read
Happy weekend! I'm fighting a sinus infection and enjoying the opportunity to be utterly unproductive. There is so much I want to write but it's not happening. The pounding head. The pressure in my face. It's beyond distracting. I spent most of yesterday afternoon in bed, counting the minutes until Gil walked through the door … Continue reading The World According to Piers and Wallace
