Do you ever stare so long at the same thing that you start to question reality? No? Just me? Ah. The thing is, I spent an ungodly amount of time the last few days reorganizing my Pinterest boards. And it feels good. I feel more in control, even though I’m probably not. I feel as though I’m going through an emotional Renaissance. As you might have guessed from some recent posts. I’m concentrating on getting back to what makes me… Read more »

Listen. I’m going to share a little piece of my heart with y’all. You know in Practical Magic, when little baby Sally (Sandra Bullock’s character) walks around and puts petals in a bowl while naming the qualities of her perfect man? She’s all, “He’s patient, and strong, and has one blue eye and one green eye, and always takes out the trash, and has a lisp, and sometimes gets a twitch?” I might be paraphrasing, but I’m pretty sure that’s… Read more »

Oh. My. Heavens. We made it to Friday. Give yourself a pat on the back. Put your adult beverage of choice in the fridge. Lift your head, child, for the end is in sight. For one of the few times in my life, it was difficult for me to shop for FF, because I have like jaguar concentration on finding cute and cheap dishes and cups to blog with. Le sigh. Anyway, I saw so many pretty, floaty, ruffly delightful… Read more »

I have a pretty demanding job. I realize it doesn’t register on the scale of profit loss to the stock market crash of 1929, but it is demanding nonetheless. And, quite frankly, it’s hard. I respect people who work demanding jobs. It’s harder, for me, to be a working wife. It’s hard to leave my husband in bed and get up when it’s dark outside. It’s hard to have a deadline week and be gone 15 out of 24 hours…. Read more »

I’ve been thinking a lot about time. My dear friend, Patricia, turned me on to the TimeHop app. Its a “time capsule of you,” and pulls your historic posts from your social media profiles. It has given us forgotten friendship gems, some puzzlingly vague updates, and plenty of opportunities for me to laugh at my own old jokes. Yesterday, however, it pulled up something that made me kind of sad and angry. Maybe a little life-hangry. Three years ago yesterday,… Read more »

Bonjour, Mes Amis! Can I interest you in a delicious, healthy, completely customizable dinner that goes from fridge to table in under 30 minutes? I can? Well, then, have I got a treat for you! Meet my good friend, the Portabella Pizza. If you want to be rude and real technical, it’s a simple stuffed mushroom. But it’s so much better for my heart to hear the word “pizza.” I originally got the inspiration from this link I found on… Read more »

Hello, friends. I’m so excited to be writing to you, again, on this new platform. If you’ve randomly stumbled across this post, then I am impressed and slightly afraid of where you were on the internet. If you’ve followed my other blog, then you should feel right at home. I’ve had a psychological break. Or something. Basically, I decided that my old blog didn’t afford me enough personal freedom. How could I wax poetic about things like cheese while still… Read more »
