They Coulda’ Been Great! May-June 2013

5

  Hi Mom, Chris, Nancy and the other 98% of my family (and a few of my best friends who aren’t on Facebook)! You know how you never check my blog anymore because I NEVER post anything anymore? And how I always say it’s because I’m so busy and that’s only 50% true because the…

Saying Grace

  I’m not a particularly religious person. We stopped going to church when I was very little, and while I was baptized, I can’t even tell you the exact denomination. Protestant? Episcopalian? Something like that. Then when we moved to DC, my parents made the incongruous decision to enroll my brother and me in private…

  *I read this at DC’s Listen to Your Mother Show, Sunday, April 28. Thought I’d post it here for friends and family who couldn’t come. Since I wrote it for the performance, it may not translate as well on the (virtual) page…but the videos will be online later this summer! My mother once told…

Personal History (We Move to Pelham)

3

I’ve been pretty busy with Listen to Your Mother for the past couple of weeks, but I’ve been meaning to post another installment of that personal history I’m writing for our family “ancestor book.” If you’re interested, you can find the ealier posts under ”About Me.” Since this would be “Part Three” and I’m barely four years old…I think we’ll…

Greatness by Association

Did you know that my brother is an artist? Well he is. And he’s crazy talented – like “his work should be shown in important galleries” talented. And that’s not just the family love talking (okay .01% love – but the rest is strictly objective). My parents’ shop participates in a Key West event called…

My Childhood in Pictures

There is something about old birthday party pictures that really transport you back. My Dad has been scanning old slides and periodically sends me images – some of which I either don’t remember or have never seen before. These seem to be from my fifth birthday party: So “old school birthday party”… Just a bunch…

Taking One for the Team

Have I ever mentioned that I hate sports? And it’s not even just athletic competition – I really don’t like games of any kind. Family board game commercials give me hives. Gambling in Vegas? No thank you. I would rather spend the afternoon at the dentist office than sit through an hour of poker. This…

Okay, So I Started a New Style Blog

5

I know that there is this idea floating out there among my friends and family that I have like 100 blogs. Actually – I only have two, this site and Wishing True (where you will find a copy of this post today). The As Good As Cake site is just a page for giveaways and…

Magical Thinking, The Secret and Wishing Really, Really Hard

*Don’t forget to enter my Blair Waldorf approved giveaway from Andrea’s Beau! Click here for details.Sorry for the re-post – but I wanted to put this guest post on my own site as well. And if you didn’t read it – well here is your second chance. I wrote it for my friend Christy’s blog,…

Vintage Rehab

Chris’ parents were here this weekend, so there wasn’t much time for writing. I did want to get in a quick Materialistic Monday post though. I’ve had Vintage Rehab on my Etsy favorites list for a long time. I think my friend Ainsley first introduced me to Stacey Samuel’s work. 1800s Fan Necklace Here is…
