I almost titled this, “Benji’s Birth Story,” but that just feels incorrect. Because to me, this story is not about him at all. Benji being born - and the amazing joy he has brought to our lives - has nothing to do with the 16 hours leading up to his birth. I really can’t explain that enough, though I know it sounds a bit weird.Read More
Welp, there went summer. Between having a baby and all the family and friend visits - not to mention the no-sleeping - this was probably the lightening-flashiest of summers I've lived so far. And the blog is definitely long overdue for a recap!Read More
The first two weeks of life with Mr. Benji have been the classic challenge everyone promised: a sleepless fog of diaper explosions, sore nipples and high-decibel communication (happy to report that baby's lungs are in full working condition).Read More
Now that I'm a couple weeks into maternity leave and at about 70% satisfaction with the way the Trois-Rivières apartment is coming together, I can try to be more serious about keeping up with this blog!Read More
It's been ages since I've felt like I had anything to write about. (It felt so try-too-hard-y to try making an interesting post about what we ate for dinner, or that how many times a week we have to clean the entryway of its sidewalk salt-stains.) But I keep thinking that I want to anyway. I mean, who cares? (Read: who reads this anyway? I see you, Mom. And I love you.)
The part that always brings me back around to wanting to blog is really the DESIGN part. I get so impressed/obsessed with the stuff I see around. It makes me go, "That's really cool. I want to do that." So why don't I? Ok, ok, I will. :)
So without further preamble (I always feel like coming back from a long hiatus deserves a 3,000-word update on everything that has happened since the last post), I'm just going to dive right in. And by that I mean, re-posting my old favorites (mostly the Travel stuff from my big 2014 Eurotrip) with some added commentary, and sprinkling in the new stuff as it comes.
Next up: Some updates.
