hump day nuggets: these are the days

hump day nuggets: little bits of the season in photos and words about the last week So I do these nuggets and by the very purpose of them, they are itty snippets of the last week, an overarching message composed of individual moments. I like this. But sometimes I have a day like yesterday and I feel like the rest of the last week and all its nuggety-ness has been trumped. Yesterday was arduous for both Andy and me. And … Continue reading hump day nuggets: these are the days →

earth week life

Last week’s front page of the Missoula Independent reads, Forget feel-good rallies and one-day recycling efforts.

mookers milestone and earth week

Margot ditched her beloved pacifier last week. Oh my girl and her willful, thoughtful way. She amazes me. For the last two years she’s loved her bedtime mookers and, just like that, she tossed it. Read about my husband’s brilliant strategy and Margot’s impressive gumption in this week’s mama digs, mookers milestone. :: :: :: Also, in honor of Earth Week (and as I cringe thinking of my daughter’s pacifier in a landfill), I am joining the Biomimicry Institute’s Great … Continue reading mookers milestone and earth week →
