  • This is a great story. Full of random details that I (somehow) string together to create a tale. It’s got airplanes, chickens, a dollhouse, and some black hair dye. OK, a lot of black hair dye. Infact, too much black hair dye. Alright, enough fan fare. The reason I share this story is ’cause some…

  • Dusty Sunshine

    It’s happening – hear and there, bit by bit, progress is being made. One day it’s something as indiscernible as a second layer of paint. Another day it’s a long-rough edge being smoothed and made new. Spring brings time off from the family business once a week, allowing Jeremy to once again resume work on…

  • Progress in the Master Bathroom Remodel

    My husband is the Craig’s List King. I may have mentioned that he got almost everything for our master bathroom off of Craig’s List, including this double basin granite sink for $100. Yeah, it, it was broke in half, but he told me he could fix it. I believed him. He called me upstairs the…

  • Those who know my husband, Jeremy, know he is a man of few words, and that when he does speak, it’s usually worth listening to. Just wanted to let my readers know that he has written a guest post over on our friend Katie’s blog, Not Unredeemed.  In his post, “You Don’t Need a Fairy…

  • In which we live and breath and dream about SKIING!

    This time of year, our life centers around skiing. The weekdays are spent preparing for, talking about, and anticipating the weekends, which are spent on the mountain or in the ski lodge (depending on age and ability). It’s not surprising then, that the dollhouse people went skiing last week. Skis were carefully crafted for each…

  • Valentine’s Day at our House: For the Husband

    To the man who has given his all to be my everything. To the boy who followed wisdom, who sowed good seed instead of wild oats. Who stored up passion and dreams to lavish on someone he hadn’t yet met. Who bought a diamond for one who was nameless. Who learned skills and drew plans…

  • Here are some things I’d never remember if I didn’t take the time to write them down in my Kid’s Journals or, in the case of the humor between Jeremy and I, in my own journal. 1. Jesse: “When Seth gets big he gonna be my best person, and when Seth get big, me gonna…

  • Birthday Business

    The house has recovered from the weekend, due, in large part to my dishwasher, my mother-in-law, and my kids, who are finally learning to clean up after themselves (bless them!). Last week involved a lot of preparation and secrets. A trip to the hardware with my little boy, and the ensuing loot hidden carefully in…

  • Grill Season in Full Swing (or, "We love helping Daddy")

    “Daddy, what are you doing up there?” “Putting together the new grill, baby girl.” Reading instructions… It’s so much fun to be a part of the goings on. (especially when you’ve got curly pigtails, ya’ know?) Daddy even let her put in a few screws. A tractor ride afterward to celebrate. Tonight on the grill…

  • A Home for my Wisteria

    Our new place came with a big old wisteria plant that was totally dominating a little decrepit arbor. This is the bush AFTER Jeremy trimmed it. He asked me what we could do with it, as it is an eye sore currently. I told him it needed something big to climb on that wouldn’t mind…

  • Pie Marathon

    This is what happens when I ask my man what kind of pie he wants for his birthday… Strawberry Rhubarb was his first choice. A bit out of season for this – thankfully I stock my freezer with rhubarb and strawberries for just such a time as this. Key Lime was the next choice. And…
