Snow days. I love those mornings.  Don’t you? Starting a day with a quick gaze out the window, only to see a beautiful layer of fresh snow defines a New England childhood.  Those kind of moments encourage time to stand still and allow you to simply be.  And gaze. On regular mornings, other things creep … Continue reading

It’s time to carbo-load. When I was little there were only two foods I would eat:  spaghetti and chicken fingers.  When out to dinner, my parents would beg me to order something else.  I’d refuse.  I would make a fuss and crawl across the the table.  Everyone has these not-so-mature moments…  Only yours probably didn’t last … Continue reading

I’m back again. Miss me?  Here’s what’s up. 1.  Obama delivered the State of the Union address last week.  He spoke of economic inequality, women’s rights, veterans, and healthcare.  I just wished he had spent the entire time delivering an introductory course on how to maneuver through the healthcare website.  Oh.  And John Boehner.  How … Continue reading

I get so very thinky in the wintertime. The world slows as the snow falls and suddenly, my mind has the time and space to race wildly.  My brain doesn’t shut off and my thoughts…  Well, they’re just there, swirling around in every direction.  They are never content with quiet, preferring to create noise rather than … Continue reading

Sorry, Promise.

GUYS.   I haven’t forgotten about you, promise. Okay, maybe I did for like…  A WEEK.  Maybe two.  Or three.  Okay fine, three.  But I’m like super duper sorry. I’m not going to blame it on work, or on time, or on being away visiting friends and sisters, or on the freaking polar vortex that’s … Continue reading

Hey ya’ll. Lace cookies.  Have you heard of them?  Apparently they are the daintiest and most delicate cookies out there.  But they have holes in them.  What’s up with that?  I’m pretty sure lace cookies are just a term used for cookies that turn out horribly wrong and barely count as food because they’re all basically … Continue reading
