In A Rut

In A Rut

Lately I feel like I have a surplus of energy! Maybe after working 67 hours a week, consecutively week after week, having an extra 27 hours makes a normal 40 hour work week suddenly feel so unproductive! Gabriel and I talked about having this pie […]

The Abyss

The Abyss

Danger Dogg turned 5 years old on September 19. Though I’m only about two months behind blogging about our fun day, we celebrated with a day of fun festivities! It’s impossible to imagine our fun little family without him. As I mentioned in my last […]

Wicked: A captivating biography of the Wicked Witch of the West in the land of Oz (on the off chance you didn’t know…). While the Wizard of Oz, written by L. Frank Baum, tells the story of Dorothy’s ascent from simple farm girl to hero […]

Wonderful Scents

I’m stingy when it comes to food I can’t reproduce, like raspberries for instance. My parents have a idyllic tower of raspberry bushes in their garden which produces beautiful berries throughout the months of June and July. Fortunately, last year they were on vacation during […]
