I haven't read American Pastoral or Gift from the Sea yet -- it sounds like they need to be moved up higher on my reading list! ;) And I'm eager to hear about your big news. Hope you have a wonderful weekend! x

I forced myself out of bed extra early this morning on a self-imposed mission to make English muffins from scratch. I've been thinking about English muffins for weeks, ever since watching an episode of Cook's Country that featured English muffin... Continue reading

Forsythia branches freshly cut from our yard. Yellow isn't usually a color I gravitate toward, but on a gray day like today, I'll take all the color I can get. Continue reading

Haha. I've showed him a few things but it looks kind of goofy out of context. And to the disappointment of everyone I know, there's no performances for the adult classes ;)

thanks, Ana – I hope you find one! x

It's been over a year since I started taking adult ballet classes, and my only regret is that I didn't go back sooner. Better late than never, though, right? These days I go to class once a week; sometimes, when... Continue reading
