Update #1 | Update #2 I'm finishing up Rob Lowe's Love Life on Audiobook - although I really like listening to his voice (swoon), I found myself getting a little bored & zoning out. I don't know if that's a... Continue reading

It was a busy month, for sure...one of those months that feels fleeting, and often rushed. A few of my favorites... Cheers to Summer's Ending Jif Whipped Peanut Butter & Pumpkin Spice Flavored spread - I don't care that it's... Continue reading

We have an end-of-summer tradition that goes something like this... The end of August arrives seeminly without warning, and I realize that the world will end if I don't take a photograph (or six) of my children together, and we... Continue reading

Hmmm....I can't think of one with a lighthouse. Are you thinking of Magical Journey by Katrina Kenison? Or maybe Learning to Breathe by Priscilla Warner?

(image source) I have a running list of people that I'd like to invite to an imaginary dinner party. Imaginary because I don't actually know these people, so the likelihood of said party actually happening is rather....small. After listening to... Continue reading

Vermont summers exist to make us forget about Vermont winters. It doesn't really work - in the same way that you never really forget the pain of childbirth. But. This weekend came very close. I would love to say that... Continue reading

Searching for grace to deal with a week that has been less than stellar. Holding tight to the fervent belief that moving forward is not only possible, it's guaranteed. Trying to eliminate stuck and struggling from my vocab. Carry on... Continue reading

Congrats!!! I'm going back to look at all of the spreads that you're posting - but I'm totally giving you a high five for finishing. As you know, I've been a little less enthused about Project Life this year - but I'm still so glad that I'm doing it.
This is really, really great.

An elderly guy? Whatever. I still like a book in hand, but my Nook comes in handy when I'm traveling (I always overpack). I challenge myself to read fiction, because....meh. I kind of hate fiction.

So, I didn't make much progress this month - at least not on books from this list. I started Let's Just Say It Wasn't Pretty - and HATED it, so I stopped. I'm currently flip-flopping between Thrive and Habit. I... Continue reading

Austin & I hit the road this week for a quick stay in Providence. Day one was an epic fail - a route that was supposed to bypass Boston, but didn't + a terrible dinner = two tired, cranky travelers.... Continue reading

I rec'd this book for review an embarrassingly long time ago. I've struggled with what to write because I really, really wanted to like this book....but it just didn't resonate. I thought that maybe if I put it down for a bit, and then started again, that I'd be able... Continue reading

As I got settled on my return flight last night, a Mom, Grandma, and 2 kids took their seats in the row behind me. The kids were young, and clearly excited about flying. The flight attendant came over to talk... Continue reading
