I’ve been receiving my Stitch Fixes regularly, but not blogging them regularly. Sometimes I even photograph them but then refuse to post them because “my face looks chunky in that photo” or “I couldn’t get the shirt to lay properly and it makes me look lumpy.”
Body issues are stupid.… Read More
The heavy snow on Saturday made for perfect playtime for the brothers. And the dog, apparently, who went absolutely giddy with dog-glee.
The boys headed outside first. They built a fort. They made a tunnel by building snow around a giant bouncy ball and then digging it back out.… Read More
I am thrilled to announce that I am an Official Blogger for the Pittsburgh Marathon again this year.
