A Letter To a Little Girl.

Dear Little One, I have been wanting to write you a letter for a very long time, but it wasn’t until my friend Katie suggested it, that I really realized how important it was to do this, and to do it now. I often didn’t know what I’d say to you, because there’s nothing planned. There’s no structure to wrap my head around the enormity of all I feel you need to know ....more

A Really Pumped Up Ask Away Friday.

Let it be said that I did not hit a partner snafu with this week’s Ask Away Friday. Rather, I was partnered with one of my favorite people ON EARTH, and we both decided that something so good should be postponed slightly, while we both see to other things this week. Amicable settlement here, people ....more

A Completely Tearful and Not Completely Wordless Wednesday: Kindergarten.

I was actually going to go completely wordless and completely tearfully this week. For real this time. And then something happened ....more

Game Day Prep.

It’s funny that I’m writing this during the day (week?) in which football has begun. It’s funny that I’m using a sports-related title, mainly because I have never watched a football game. In my life ....more

A Particularly Adorable Bridal Edition of Ask Away Friday.

I’m writing/posting this on Kindergarten Eve, so capitalized because of its meaning. As I’m writing this, Scarlet is shouting out, “I can’t wait for tomorrow! School!” And Des is home from the first day of daycare in which I left him ....more

Wordless Wednesday With Eddie Money Lyrics.

“Well if I could walk on water And if I could find some way to prove If I could walk on water would you believe in me My love is so true Well I’m no angel, now, I’ll admit I made a few bad moves I should regret I hurt you once or so you said Just one more chance is all you get Didn’t mean to do you wrong again Worse things have been done by better men Baby, baby, don’t, don’t treat me this way I know, yes, I’ve got to pay now, I’m still paying Well if I could walk on water And if I could find some way to prove If I could walk on water would you believe in me, my love is true All along, I told you lies To err is human, forgive is divine Don’t be a fool, don’t settle the score Cause I can’t take it no more, I can’t take it Well if I could walk on water And if I could find some way to prove If I could walk on water would you believe in me, my love is true Well, if I could walk on water (if I could) Is that what I’m gonna have to do If I could walk on water would be you believe in me, my love is so true Do I have to walk, walk, walk on water for you Hey baby, baby, there’s a little time, let’s spend it together We’ll get over what we left behind, there’s our future together Yeah, well let’s stay together Well, if I could walk on water And if I could find some way to prove If I could walk on water would you believe in me, my love is true My love is so true, do I have to walk, oh, walk on water for you If I had to walk, girl If I had to walk, walk, walk Do I have to walk on water, walk on water for you Do I have to walk on water Do I have to find some way to prove Do I have to walk on water, walk on water for you Do I have to walk on water Do I have to find some way to prove Yeah, yeah, walk on water, walk on water for you” — Eddie Money You’re probably NOT wondering why I did this for a post, because HELLO, Eddie Money and all. How could you not? We walked on water in these photos! ...more

Let It Go.

I started writing this post to the song “Learning to Fly” coming on shuffle on my Pandora. At the same time(ish), I got distracted and wandered over to Facebook to discover that I was tagged in a photo my sister took today of Scarlet “flying” at the three county fair we have in Northampton this weekend. My girl can fly, don’t you think? ...more

It’s Time For The Newlywed Game!

Ok now bear with me here, everyone. I had yet another one of my weird Ask Away Friday ideas, but this one didn’t involve interviewing any of my family members. Or any pets for that matter, although I’d surely like to get into young Bella’s mind and ask her about her apparent mental illness ....more

The Cape House.

When Cassidy and I were first together in 2004, it was quick and full of fire. It involved wolves, moose and whales quite seriously. Six hour flights and walks through Ocean Beach sunsets ....more

You Take The Good. You Take The Bad.

It starts. The bad. Some of you may have noticed that my blog was a little broken last week ....more
