And the Winner Is …
Thanks to everyone who participated in the Shabby Apple giveaway! I wrote everyone’s name on a slip of paper (and am now guessing there’s a way to do this on the computer—ha), and then had Sophie close her eyes and pick one. The winner is … Sarah K! Thanks...

Green Bananas
Owen wanted a banana this morning. I told him they were still too green to eat. He then spent much of the morning trying to convince me to go to the store to buy—not yellow bananas but—yellow paint. “Ding-a-ling-ling-ling-ling-ling-ling-ling! Boo-ba-doo-ba-doop!...

Shabby Apple Giveaway!
This isn’t the first time I’ve been asked to host a giveaway or write a review. I’ve always declined, though, because the products didn’t seem fitting. But when Shabby Apple, a lovely site that offers a modern take on vintage clothing, asked if I wanted...

Sophie’s First Sleepover

Where I’ve Been

Go. To. Sleep.
Sophie (at 9:37pm, after asking for a glass of water, while both boys are screaming for me): “Why are you a little stompy right now?” I guess the hardwood floor in her room did a poor job of hiding tonight’s frustration. “There was never a child so lovely...

The Office
The final episode of “The Office” is on right now. Andy and I used to watch it religiously, every Thursday night. We stopped three years ago (Owen and James turn 3 Sunday). The show started soon after Andy and I were married. I was working at Popular...

Links I Love
• It was spring, and raining—hard, and I was driving back from Ohio University with all my college furniture and belongings stuffed in the back of my parents’ pickup truck, covered in a tarp. With the rain came wind and the ropes holding my tarp down...
