We're getting settled in here at home after our trip. The warm sunshine was amazing. The time with friends even better. I spent so much time laughing and talking and just being with those people I love so dearly. The kids did the very same.... staying up way too late and falling asleep in piles of blankets and pillows like... Continue reading

Hi Laura, thanks for bringing that to my attention! I had no idea. I’m not sure why it suddenly stopped working….. I added my blog to my feedly and it is stuck in the same spot. I’m emailing a few people to try and figure it out! In the meantime, you can subscribe to the newsletter! I only send out 2-3 a month…. so it’s not overwhelming you’ll be up to date on the freshest posts here. I’m so glad your girls love their bags :)

I almost had my hat finished this month and then realized I goofed up on the decrease while talking to Joe in the car. I'm not really good at talking and counting, I guess. So I have to pull it back out and redo it. It's close though! Just in time for spring biking weather for the hat wearer I... Continue reading

I have been eyeing that book f-o-r-e-v-e-r! I think I need to pick it up this year before we start the garden :) I know just what you mean about the weather too..... it's been 50 and then 27. Again, and again. The snow *IS* melting. Slowly but surely. I am definitely looking forward to getting out there and planting in a few weeks. So close!! I have the Herbfarm on my list! I was waiting for springier weather to request it from the library. Our CSA gives us a wonderful selection of herbs throughout the spring and summer.... I am so excited for it to start up at the end of next month. Looking forward to fresh eating again for sure! And I never mind book suggestions!! I wish we could share too.... we have so many common interests :) Happy spring to you!

I've been wanting to give a little facelift to these cabinets for quite awhile. Especially after we got the dining room aka homeschool room painted (saving that project for another post). At first I picked a green color.... and I really pretty much hated how it looked with the soft yellow in the dining room. I don't know what I... Continue reading

Yes! I remember that "indefinite" enlistment. It felt so huge.... and then.... here we are with twenty years in. It went by slowly, but quickly... I'm sure you understand that :) Your dream sounds fabulous!! You can certainly do ALL of that and more in the coming years. Even though the constant uprooting is hard, I wouldn't change any of it. We often joke that we don't have a local number for an emergency contact, but we could break down in our car just about anywhere in the United States and have a friend to call :) And so it goes..... Many good wishes to you in achieving your dreams as well! xo!

I totally agree! Massachusetts and New York have some tax benefits that are hard to pass up for retired military. So we're looking in both of those places. Wishing you guys the best of luck in finding your perfect place too!

Hi there :) The clay hand was painted with Amaco’s velvet underglaze, dried overnight, and then topped with clear glaze. The underglazes are here : http://www.amaco.com/shop/product-458-velvet-v-underglazes-lead-free.html We have really loved working them….. especially for kid projects!

Happy first day of spring! From now on any wintry weather will be laughed at and referred to as fickle spring weather. That fifteen degrees this morning and the flurries forecasted for tonight? Oh well, that's just spring. In like a lion, out like a lamb they say.... (haha winter, we won!) I spent a rather embarrassing amount of time... Continue reading

The seasons were more subtle when we lived in the south.... sometimes I do miss the mild weather... and right now I even miss the heat! My body is craving sunshine & warmth for sure...... But it will come. Spring is on the way......

I've seen bees here too, lol!! This winter broke the record in Boston this year.... over 108 inches!! Crazy! But it is melting slowly. Spring is winning..... even though it might snow more tomorrow. (I'm ignoring the forecast!) Bring on the MUD!!

Oh, dreams. They are made up of hard work and good ideas and hope. Many moons ago our first dream was a camp in the woods. We bought cabin books and magazines. Searched for land. Studied kits and plans for cabins. Crunched numbers. Saved, and saved. I imagined driving up to our camp, kids in tow, a giant hammock waiting... Continue reading
