welcome to our new digs

Oh man oh boy oh mama oh my goodness. Welcome!

I am so excited to share with you, dear ones, my new online home. This website has been in the works since our family dwelled in the tiny apartment that is now my studio from where I sit and write right this minute. The lightness I feel in having this beast live encouraged me to do cartwheels in the fresh snow this morning.

A little shout out to my husband, who doesn’t even raise his eyebrows when I ask him to follow me to the field to document my inverted enthusiasm. Love him. And to my kids who find this to be as normal as pancakes for breakfast.

I did the site design but the whole thing was built by the smart, thorough, fun, fabulous Amy Corbin of Piece a Cake Media. You should hire her. And the illustration anchored at the top of my site is Courtney Blazon‘s genius. She does family portraits and other commissions and is wonderful to work with. You should hire her too.

So, that’s it for now. Up next: a big ol’ internet hug of a post involving the meeting of one of my favorite writers who is now one of my favorite real life people. Melina hopped on a bus and came to Missoula to spend the night with my family. It was so good. Oh and the hunting! I will write about hunting. And holidays and Ruby’s birthday and running, snow, corn chowder, chicken coops…first, today. A few more cartwheels.

  4. Col was looking at this photo and said, “what are you doing?”
    Me: “That’s not me, that’s my friend, Nici. She’s doing cartwheels in the snow.”
    Col: “Oh. Who’re the kids? Is that me and Rosie?”

    Your new site is amazing and reflects your beauty, zest for life, and creativity!

      I absolutely adore Col’s bright, funny brain. And will you please give him a message from me?

      Dear Col,

      I have so enjoyed getting to know your mama and your family through her writing. I can honestly say that, although I’ve never met you, I feel love for you! And your sister Rose, too. When we DO indeed meet, will you please do cartwheels with Margot, Ruby and me?

      With love,

  5. Melina says:

    All that talk of cartwheels and I never showed Margot my moves! I can even do a roundoff!

    For real, this new site is so glossy and beautifully put together. I love everything being in the same place. What a huge step.

    I miss you!

    I am a long time reader, but cannot remember if I have ever commented before. Anyway…I LOVE IT! It’s absolutely beautiful. I actually stopped by the site yesterday evening and wanted to comment about the new design, but figured I’d wait until there was a post mentioning it so that it fit better. :)

    Also, the pictures of your cartwheels made me smile on a day I really needed it. Thank you!
