Good days and bad

Today was a good day.  I tried to cherish every moment with my girls, enjoyed the highs and brushed off the lows, celebrated small victories and heard "I love you so much mama" so many times I thought my heart might burst.  I felt more like myself today Read More

A Bright New Year

Today I woke up feeling fresh and new and more like myself than I have in quite some time.  Part of it was that Vivienne slept 7 1/2 hours last night (can I get a hallelujah?), another part was that poor Anna who has had the flu slept through the night Read More

RUBY’S BABY PEACOCK COSTUME

Last year at Halloween, Ruby was a wee 6 months old.  I can't believe how much she has changed in a year!  As we get closer to Halloween, I wanted to share her costume from last year-- I just love how it turned out.  And it was relatively easy to put Read More

ELEVEN (a collaboration with Tiffany’s)

Eleven years ago tomorrow, Jon and I anxiously held hands, waiting for our names to be called.  We walked into a room, surrounded by our families and friends.  There we were sealed as husband and wife and I jumped the gun more than once saying yes. Read More
