Things I Love Thursday: Our New Car!

On some Thursdays, I'll share something random that I'm really liking, enjoying, or appreciating. Just a little post to share a little snippet of life right now. I'd love to know if you also like these things, and what you're randomly into these days! At the end of July, I sold my 1998 Saturn sedan.... Continue Reading →


Last week, just before bedtime, the babies spent awhile having a ball playing on and around the baby couch. Here's the progression--but imagine lots of happy screeching and giggling to accompany the images. 🙂 Video!

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 →

My local store didn't have the letters I wanted, so I got them online. Sometime in the last year or two, I remembered... Continue Reading →

Big Bad Apple

I lived in New York for eight years. There are a lot of great things about the city, which everyone knows: tons of cultural events, bars stay open really late, it's really easy to get around via public transportration, great restaurants everywhere, interesting and diverse mix of people, it's never boring. However, the thought of... Continue Reading →

Pinspiration: Desserts

I joined Pinterest mainly for photography inspiration. But I kept seeing people post amazing food/cooking/baking and reluctantly began pinning those too. I don't really cook, but in the past few years I've enjoyed doing some baking and trying out tasty new desserts. (Dessert is the best food group, don't you think?) I know that sweets...
