Goodbye, Apartment

We are fully out of our apartment and in Michigan with all of our boxed-up belongings, rolled-up rugs, and furniture looking for where it will go in our new home. Moving is proving to me once again that there is nothing quite like leaving a place to make you fond of it. Our last week […]

This is where I dish about lots of different topics that probably don’t need their own post but I want to tell you about anyway. All while drinking coffee!

Fridays Have Been Cancelled

Oh, hi there! Just popping in to let you know to not expect Friday posts from me for the foreseeable future. It turns out packing for an out-of-state move while corralling a newly-mobile baby is time-intensive (who knew!) and I now go to bed every night feeling like I ran a marathon. But don’t go […]

Rental Shopping

I think looking for rentals is super fun. There’s no pressure to know how many bedrooms you’ll need in 10 years, or if you can live with those small closets for the long haul. Renting is a low-commitment way to try out different layouts and set ups and appliances to get a really good idea […]

We’re Moving (again)

We’re headed back to Michigan! Our old stomping grounds! We did not anticipate moving, and definitely not so soon. Everything just sort of fell into place and it’s happening and happening fast!

The Nursery!

An Easy Stain Removal System

An Easy Stain Removal System

THINGS ARE GETTING GLAMOROUS OVER HERE. We’re talking stain removal. I used to thoroughly enjoy stain removal. The occasional spot of oil or tomato sauce I would get on my clothes proved to be a sort of fun challenge. I would race against the stain-setting clock to scrub out the mark and tenderly treat it […]

Looking Ahead to 2019

Happy 2019! I realize it’s already the second of the month, so whatever resolutions I’m making that I didn’t start on yesterday can basically be thrown out the window for the year, but I am goal setting and thinking about the year ahead anyway! There’s been a not-so-subtle shift in my enthusiasm about making new […]

Looking Back on 2018

A lot can happen in a year! When we rang in 2018, we lived in a house in Michigan. I was pregnant and working for an insurance company, and Husband was still in law school. Now we live in an apartment in Virginia with our baby. I get to spend my days cooking up a […]
