That Hair

This is me at three months old. I was born with a full head of hair and it never fell out. I've had lots of dark hair ever since. My hair has been medium or long since I was a kid, and it has always been thick and prone to tangling. It was long all... Continue Reading →

Mother’s Day Giveaway!

Hi friends, I try not to 'cross the streams' here, but I am really excited about the giveaway I'm running through my photography website. It's a message that I feel strongly about, as you know. (Plus I collaborated with someone who is also a former NYC teacher/blogger who moved to Portland the same time we... Continue Reading →

Bad Jeans

I hate jeans shopping. I would say I hate it with the fire of a thousand suns, but I don't even have that energy for that; jeans shopping just saps my energy and my will. It's just so defeating and seemingly pointless, because nothing ever feels right or fits right. This helpful and hilarious post/series... Continue Reading →

Much like turning thirty did, the idea of turning thirty-five made me panic a... Continue Reading →

Not me--I raise my hand as a proud dessert-haver. No excuses, no guilt. JUST DELICIOUS DESSERT. So if you're out with... Continue Reading →

How We Keep Our House Clean

Hang on a sec, let me finish laughing. Hahahahaha. "Clean." Hahahahaha. That's hilarious. We are kind of slobs. Wait, that doesn't sound right; we aren't dirty or living in filth or anything. We just get lazy about things like vacuuming and dusting. It's not a priority for us. And I'm hoping that we're not the... Continue Reading →
