my life in snow

It’s snowy here and when the snow flies so do emotions, ski wax and goggles. Ski season has arrived and with it comes many hours spent bundling and unbundling bodies. Also, most notably, with it comes our annual conversations about the reasonability of cyber-stalking storms and wishing we could teleport to Utah for the weekend. Ah, skiing. It’s a huge part of our lives. I love it and my man loves it more. I wrote about a personal subject in … Continue reading my life in snow →

I love soup in all it’s wonderful brothy, stewy, chunky, smooth variations. Trouble is I am married to a man who … Continue reading hump day nuggets: soup, no soup →

nine to five

It’s been nearly a year since I left my job at our local museum to be home with my girls and stitch together writing and sewing to create income. I was nervous for the change, totally unsure. Also, really excited and pretty damn sure. Sometimes I feel like my generation is plagued with too many good choices. I don’t mean to sound spoiled. It’s just that all these choices and ways to experience success makes many of my friends feel … Continue reading nine to five →
