Chocolate Toffee Biscotti

My 8-year-old is going to be the death of my attempts to eat less sugar. While I’m thrilled about her love of baking, I don’t relish the thought of delivering a massive baby, and my midwives raise a concerned eyebrow at my previous 9 pound baby and current failing of the first gestational diabetes test […] ...more

Monday Moments: Happy Thanksgiving

It’s been a season or two of crazy, and this weekend mostly I am thankful just for a weekend to (re)focus on giving thanks. A time to reflect on all the good, the beautiful, the special, the abundant, the true. The first hot chocolate of the season ....more

Homemade Oreos

There are few things I like better than a good giant Oreo entering my face. Oreos are one of my only hard cookie weaknesses (only the chocolate ones, not the goldens). Being able to make an even more delicious version at home can only be a dangerous thing ....more

Monday Moments: Wedding Bells

After not attending many weddings in recent memory, suddenly we had two within less than a month! This weekend saw us saying good-bye to the young man who has been part of our family for almost a year and a half. It was a beautiful day, and a good excuse to get dressed up and […] ...more

A few more days of river walks and wading ....more

Monday Moments: Birthday Boy

Just a couple weeks after the last birthday, we had another birthday to celebrate! This guy pulls at my heartstrings with his sweet nature and desire to keep the peace and make sure everyone’s happy and taken care of. He rarely asks for anything, so basically anytime he does I want to get it for […] ...more

Zucchini Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

So the time has finally come that I own a cell phone. Which means you can ask me if you want my number, or you can just follow me on Instagram, where I’m most excited to be back so I can take selfies with flamingos. I suppose it was really only a matter of time […] ...more

Monday Moments: Whirlwind

This week has been a blur, as evidenced by a Monday post making it’s appearance a mere hour before Tuesday is upon us. School, while not entirely anticipated by the one starting full-time or his mama, got off to a great start last week for both kids, while Theo described the newfound quiet time at […] ...more
