daddy’s boy

Day 31: Something beautiful The love between this daddy and his little man is palpable. Mooster will come to me for snuggles every now and then, but Mr. Phish is his person, for sure.

Day 30: Your personality Bold, bright, a little bit ostentatious. Passionate, fiesty, hot pink. Fierce and a little bit girly. Complicated and unique and utterly unlike any other flower (or person). Quirky and funky and striking. Slow to bloom but, with a little time, will open her heart wide to the world.

Day 28: The weather today I don’t handle the heat well. I’m not a fan. Given a choice between wind chill and heat index, I’ll take wind chill every time (and twice on Tuesdays). I love layers and bundling up. I love that first hint of crispness in the fall breeze and the slap of … Continue reading

Day 27: Something sweet Yesterday, much to the chagrin of the boogies, we got up extra early and headed to farmers market.

But … Continue reading

Day 23: Technology I love email. I adore blogging. I get lost on eBay and Pinterest. But logging on and typing in a password can’t hold a candle to this: Maybe I’m old school, but nothing compares to mail. I’m talking about real mail. Not junk mail or catalogs or coupons. Not the newspaper. Not … Continue reading

not so bashful

Day 22: Pink I’m a fan of pink. Mostly of the hot variety. I’m not a pastel kind of gal. Soft pinks are a bit too girly for me. But I love me some hot pink. My mom and I were just singing the praises of hot pink this weekend. It’s just a fun color. … Continue reading
