I swore to myself after making Phoebe a sweater last Christmas that I would never again plan so poorly that I would be knit-crying my way through finishing a tough project the night before Christmas Eve -- and hopefully that won't happen again this year. But I have to admit,... Continue reading

Kristie did not actually turn 331 over the weekend -- she's 34. My family has an amusing lack of birthday candles, so they rely on implied math instead. Currently, I'm...

Who's ready for the holidays?! (Just kidding. Is anybody really ever ready, especially two weeks out?) I'm making good progress on a few more handmade gifts, but we're putting Christmas aside this weekend to celebrate Kristie's 34th birthday.

My brother Max is an amazing bluegrass musician. He's been musically oriented his whole life, and that even extends to mealtimes. I can remember one night, not too long ago, when my brother, sister, and I were all home for dinner and together we brought out a few wine glasses... Continue reading

Kristie and I broke out the Christmas decorations the day after Thanksgiving after we got back from my parents' house. I don't know about you guys, but it's a struggle for me every year to wait that long! Not gonna lie, I may be listening to Christmas carols at work... Continue reading
