paw paw loop

Today I needed to be in a place where you’ve been. See what you’ve seen. I needed to know that you’d been there and breathed there. So I went to your woods. I wanted to feel you all around me. I wanted to feel the electricity and the magnetism and the pulse that we have.

deathday

I have a friend in my neighborhood that I walk with sort of regularly. Maybe once every few weeks or so. She’s older than me, I feel like she’s a very life-experienced peer. And she’s funny and witty and sharp like only a certain generation of women are. She drove past me today while I

remembering

I had an excuse to look for a really really old blog post recently. And then I started poking around, re-reading posts from back then for the first time in years. And then deciding to just read all of it, even the ones with horrible pictures! and the comments too… To my delight and deep

I woke up this morning, rolled over, and said to your dad ‘I think I love our baby more when she sleeps through the night’. We’ve had 5 nights in a row of good sleep and I’m feeling rested and ready to hang with you. I don’t know if its a fluke, and each night

super spinach tofu

morning muffins 2.0

Those muffins we served at the restaurant? Yea, those weren’t healthy. I know they looked healthy- carrots do that to a muffin- but they had basically equal parts flour and sugar! And lots of oil! I’ve found a new recipe that is (probably) much healthier- and baby likes it! I’ve made a big batch the

I swear there’s a food post in my drafts… I’d say that’s been a big change this month. I’m now making meals (with you in mind- pretty soft, easily broken or mashed into small pieces, less salt, etc) and you’re eating what we’re eating. More in that food post! This month has been hard for

pasta pasta!

Girlie is starting to eat some bigger chunks and has worked her way through a lot of foods. So, now I’m working on making some things that we can all eat together! She LOVES pasta. I’m not sure how much ‘nutrition’ is in pasta. It definitely is a stray from eating mostly fruits a vegetables…

profile picture

I changed my profile picture. In honor of Jenna week. And FUCK CANCER! This year it’s hit me hard, how Jenna is staying the same in all of these fun, huge smiling pictures. Pictures of trips and nights and days. Youth and thin and bright and sunny. And I’m getting old. And a mama, heavier,

Another month has flown by. I didn’t even get a chance to sneak in a food post in between! And there was some good food around here during the holidays. The holidays were a blast with you! Our routine disappeared, but we had lots of time at home with daddy and family. You enjoyed spending
