Grounding

Life is slow paced right now and I'm loving it. I've been itching to write because I want to, not because I feel like I should. Figuring out where writing fits in my summer rhythm has been tricky because while I'm enjoying a slow life, I'm also embracing a full life. My early mornings have... Continue Reading →

Summer Vacation

I have completely fallen off of the writing wagon. June has been another weird month for me, but at least I've had my health (other than one strange stomach bug that took us out for a week) so I'm happy about that. I used to write early in the mornings, but it seems like all... Continue Reading →

Slow Down

I'm a stay at home mom now. It's something that I've wanted for over 5 years, but it was still a really hard decision to make. I heard a phrase on The Next Right Thing that resonated with me, "all the arrows weren't pointing in the same direction" -- and that was exactly it. I... Continue Reading →

Hibernation Catch Up

I feel like I'm finally waking up from my later-winter/early-spring hibernation period. I tend to burrow this time of year - maybe it's the anticipation of spring in New England or maybe it's the exhaustion from trying to push through unattainable new year resolutions, I don't know. But I tend to disappear and then pop... Continue Reading →

Rest

What a week! It's now been over a week since I've written anything, even my morning pages. I've had an entire week of distressing digestion issues along with a sick husband and sick children. So I've fallen completely off of the writing wagon and am looking to slowly climb back aboard. So I'm here at... Continue Reading →

A Child’s Special Needs

I haven't written a lot about a major challenge in our home. Mostly because it's overwhelming and scary and so hard to describe. Also because I don't want to say anything that will violate the privacy of my children and make anyone uncomfortable one day. But I think it's time to be more honest and... Continue Reading →

Where to Find Inspiration

In January I wrote about my intention to get walking every day. I failed. Miserably. I still haven't gone on a single walk. I tried one day but the trails were solid ice and I worried about falling with the baby in the carrier, even with spikes on my shoes. I sort of gave up... Continue Reading →

An Artist’s Date… to the Feed Store

The snow has finally melted back enough for the crocuses to start poking through the ground! It's going to be a cold week, but those tender looking stalks are actually quite tough, so they'll be fine. The pussy willow hasn't started fuzzing yet, but I can't wait to clip some of those sweet little branches... Continue Reading →

Keeping Focus

We're nearly a quarter of the way through the year and it seems like everyone is taking stock of their blog goals - our original intentions versus what we've created as a result of our real lives. I don't know about you, but I feel adrift. I thought my goals for this year were simple:... Continue Reading →
