Kissing boo boos, changing poo poos. Dance parties, digging dirt. Making art and make believing. Unhurried, handmade, heart. Messy hands and tangled hair. Belly laughs and juicy pears. Singing, songing, all belonging. Simply, slowly. Gently growing. Inside, outside. All our own. Welcome, welcome to our house. Welcome , welcome to our home.
Ten years ago, I made a decision that would change the rest of my life: I decided to live. That choice didn’t come easy. I had to descend to the deepest, darkest place I’ve ever been in order to see light.

I am a list-maker. I like to makes lists at the beginning of the day and mark things off as I go. It’s exceptionally satisfying to see the progress I’m making throughout the day. When I became a new mother, this didn’t change – I still made lists. What changed was my waning capacity to … Read More

I loved my holiday cards from Pinhole Press so much that I splurged and ordered over $200 worth of their Ultrathick print sets. Getting them printed was the easy part… finding 25 photos decent enough to be printed from the thousands that we took while we lived abroad… no.
