  • June Reads

    How is it that June has come and gone? Do I look older? I feel older. Way older. I just had one of those parenting fail moments in Target where Reed refused to sit in the cart or hold my hand, stripped clothes from hangers every time I turned my back for a millisecond, and …

  • A Giveaway

      Sunday evening already!  I think Sunday night sleeplessness and anxiety is a real thing. I hate Sunday nights. Poor sleep. Pre-thinking about work. Why???  Too much stress. The planet is going to crack under all the pressure.  I wish I were Super Mom and could pre-cook a work week’s worth of nutritious dinners on …

  • Madelinetosh, I love you

    Now this may sound a little forward, considering we have never met. But Madelinetosh, I love you. Or rather, Amy Hendrix AKA The Force Behind Madelinetosh (TFBM), you rock. In the past year, I have knit with nearly 13 skeins of Madelintosh Tosh Merino Light. That’s 5,460 yards, minus the leftovers below. Basically, with the …
