A Simple Life

Knitting (always). Playing outdoors, in pajamas. Feeding mama freshly picked parsley. Egyptian liquorice tea, my favorite. Jasper.   It’s days like today where I find myself feeling most fulfilled. I didn’t do much, but at the same time I did everything. As a family we enjoyed a few hours outdoors, just sitting and relaxing on […]

Baby It’s Cold Outside

This weekend was full of food, fun with friends, gingersnap key lime pie (recipe from A Year of Pies), and tons and tons of knitting. I finished a sweater for Lucy, cast on and completed a hat for myself, cast on and almost completed a hat for Lucy but ran out of yarn (and the […]

A New Year

Monkey bread. Making deodorant (inspired by Drea). The view from my aunt’s house. Bread, fresh from the oven. New Years dinner. Happy 2013! I am so excited for this year. We got off to a bit of a rough start, both Russ and I came down with the flu last week and now it appears […]

Some Random Shots

Here are a few random shots from the weekend. 1. Knitting! I have been doing TONS of it. There are a lot of really special little babies around me getting ready to make their way into the world. This has given me an endless amount of projects to work on. Babies really are the most […]

The Little Things

Thank you so much for all for the amazingly heartfelt responses regarding my last post. I really can’t explain in words how nice it is to have you share your own experiences, or just send us some good energy. Really, thank you. We have been laying a bit low and trying to enjoy the little […]

Some Personal Things

(a picture of Lucy and I, looking happy, because this post is a little bit of a downer) I try not to delve into really personal matters here on my blog too often, partly because I am a pretty private person in real life (sometimes my closest friends have trouble getting things out of me), […]

Moving Blahs

In the past when I have moved to a new home I have been excited. I love all the organizing and finding new spots for things. I love the painting and decorating. I love finding new uses for old things. Maybe it is because this time I am moving with a baby, but I can’t […]

She’s Here!

Baby Lucille Darlene finally arrived yesterday, May 4th at 5:27 AM. 8 pounds 3 ounces, 18.5” long.

The Burbs

Russ and I both moved out of the suburbs nearly seven years ago when we moved out of our parent’s houses and first moved in together. After living in the city for only a short while I decided I was there to stay. Somewhere in the back of my mind I formed an opinion that […]

Week 23 (and a half)

I mentioned the other day that I wanted to start taking, and sharing, weekly pregnancy photos. So, here I am at week 23 (and a half, since my week starts on Saturdays). I think this is the last week I will be able to fit into this dress, it is feeling pretty snug. I am […]
