We’re here

And we love it.  Rain and all. Friends from PDX happened to be in town,  and it felt like a sign.  Interview tomorrow.  Send good woo.


Babies are not owed

I am a part of a few parenting groups on FB, some of which are super drama and others which are full of thoughtful, kind and nuanced conversation. I enjoy them for a variety of reasons and have recently worked hard to set some limits with myself to ensure my participation and engagement are, you... Continue Reading →

Ugh. I wrote a long,  eloquent post and then with the slip of a finger,  deleted it entirely.  I don't have the energy to recreate it,  but here are the highlights: *I have a second (third? ) interview with PP in Olympia next Monday,  so L, Ansel and I are headed to the great northwest...

I have lived my entire life in a 50 mile radius. Really. I was born in a suburb of Denver (the same suburb where my mom was born and grew up), moved to Boulder for college, moved back to Denver afterwards, and have stayed put for the last 12 years. I like Colorado. It's beautiful... Continue Reading →
