No worries – more awesome pictures will come. And for those of you who are over my lack of photography skills, here’s a brief respite. I’m not a fan of the post office, but I sure do love getting mail. My mailbox is a little empty these days so naturally I jumped at the chance […]
I have, as you might imagine, about a million pictures to edit and upload. They’ll all be up someday (I only have a few days before I leave on another trip), but in the meantime I have a few teasers to share. Starting with this one!
It just feels good to be back. Even if only for a few days.
When you go away and leave your devoted pup with your parents, it’s only fitting that you should come home to find your boy dog looking like this: Happy Monday. I hope hilarity ensues in your life as well.
Our dog (well, my brother’s dog, but the family dog nonetheless), Mr. H came home from the groomer with a seemingly normal complaint. “It looks like an infected toenail,” the groomer observed.

This week: I’m going to California. The blog beef rages on. I have already planted potatoes. I am embracing my love of Virginia by getting amped for a road trip. I talked all about the shoes I’m wearing (and the ones I’m not!) in my best friend’s wedding. And I’m really looking forward to the […]
This whole week I am house/dog/cat sitting for a family who are away for Spring Break. I thought it would be a lovely chance to get away for a while and just relax. I have the whole house to myself and it seemed like a great opportunity to just chill. The truth, however, is always […]
Back in the day (weeeeeell…maybe 7-8 years ago) I used to have this thing I called “confession time” wherein if you happened to be on aim at 3 in the morning I would target you and demand you confess something to me. 3am is a magical hour where secrets come spilling out and hot dogs […]
“Just think,” B said to me, in an uncharacteristically thoughtful moment. “Your love is beginning just as everything is starting to bloom.” We were driving, windows down. Sunshine – abundant. (I’d tell you her eyes were shining as she said this, but she’d just deny it.) B is right. As the trees started budding so […]
It’s been the most awesome weekend of the year. I came home on Friday to my new camera, a letter from an already returned missionary, a letter from a first cousin once-removed (family history work is the best), AND the seeds for my vegetable garden. If those things alone aren’t enough to indicate good things […]
