The End.

I think I've reached the end of my blogging journey, which started when I was mom to two 2nd graders...isn't that crazy? The last few times I've posted it's been random updates on our busy life, and it felt more obligatory and boring than it used to. And lately I've been reluctant to share ....more

The new house.

Today we're cleaning the old house and officially out of there! The Sailor's co-workers arrived like the cavalry the other day and moved our house from top to bottom. My jaw is still on the floor, and I'm at a loss as to how to show them our gratitude ....more

Doing your thang.

Yea, thang.I feel like that's the theme in my life right now: being comfortable with who I am, what I like to do, and the way I like to do things. I kind of assume that's the theme of our thirties, right? In your twenties you're flailing around aimlessly ....more

Don't make the same mistake I made.

Pay close attention.If you've downloaded the new iOS 8 for your iPhone, you need to be aware of this new feature that is designed to incriminate and humiliate. Go to your text message. Do it with someone you trust, not your boss ....more

'Shit white people say to....'

Can this trend die now, please? It started with THIS, then we got a bunch of THESE, and now THESE (which are the worst). Now I know, no one wants to say "what about the poor, privileged white guy?" Boohoo ....more

Randoms : September

Long time no see. We've been swamped, and it's only going to get worse over the next 15 days, but then life will go back to "normal". And thank goodness, because I have big plans for my new rolling pin and pie dishes this Fall ....more

Our Weekend in Pictures, plus some...

First, I signed up for a tent at the Mashpee Commons Fall Farmers Market every Sunday starting on the 21st through October. I'm so excited about it, and have been working like crazy to replenish my inventory and figure out how to display them. I'm going to be selling my landscape portraits there, so if you're local, come say 'Hi'! ...more

Letting go of toxic people : After the dust has setteled.

After the situation with my mother that happened back in March, but really that has gone on my entire life, we've had a clean break since late winter. It's a break that has happened before, but was always temporary. Not only was this time significant enough to be permanent, but I feel like this time brought about a new level of understanding and healing that I never experienced before ....more
