Mornings of laughter, make great days. Great friends. Hot coffee. Fruitful conversation. Fruitful afternoon spent transforming old furniture. Old sweats and favorite blanket. G’night!
He’s said it before, and I’ve thought it sweet. Tonight, he said it again. Leaning his hooded head out the window, while we chatted before going inside, before going about nighttime routines. “It smells like a camping morning.” He sniffs. The cool air, the rain-soaked earth, the birdcalls. They all remind us to listen, to […]
She has always had her own unique way of living life. She makes us laugh, makes us cry. Makes us pull our hair out sometimes, but always does things her way. Driving to school this morning, we are on the 10th of our 12-mile drive when Seneca pipes up to say, “Ya know when […]
Today, I tackled a project that I anticipated would take a good bit of time, but that I’d be glad to have done. As I painted, I listened to a few different podcasts, one of which shared the story of two brothers enjoying a bowl of ice cream. The eldest brother held his bowl […]
We’v all heard the excuses, some creative, some down right pathetic. Sometimes, I am moved by a student’s honesty. Tonight, I’m just plain honest – I had about 3 different stories running through my mind to slice about.

This day, that yawns before me wide with possibility of doing much, which ironically is sometimes even more relaxing and satisfying than doing nothing. Today, I long to make the use of […]
It’s amazing how two words can change so much. In fact, there’s so much about life that can be encapsulated by two tiny words… “I do…” “A boy…” “No way…” “Call me…” “Be careful…” “I’m sorry…” “A girl…” “Forgive me…” “Love you…” At first, I thought it was his alarm and a few rings later […]
Every year, I’m surprised by how quickly the time has flown by, and how I could possibly be so blessed to be the mother of such an amazing kid. Today, we celebrated Calder’s 7th birthday. The cookies were ready to take into his classroom, balloons of his favorite color were scattered across the dining room […]
Over the weekend, I noticed the Challenge Within a Challenge post and started strong. I commented on 10 blogs right away because I know how much I look forward to the feedback from other writers. Then, Sunday was crazy busy and I was barely able to post, and the same holds true for the […]
