And one more thing…

October 28, 2009

In a flurry to find comfortable shoes before I started my new job I found these: And I have been wearing them ever since. They’re by Teva, so they’re beyond comfortable and oh so cute. I found them in a store in Charlottesville but you can also find them on for the lovely price […]

A note

October 28, 2009

I  love all of you. I miss all of you. I will be back soon. I promise. The new job is just completely consuming right now (but in a good way). And what should I be for Halloween? Big block party this weekend, taking Benjamin during the day and going back at night with a […]

Going, going…

October 24, 2009

The new leaf necklaces are almost gone and I won’t be offering a new batch until the Spring (if even then, I just can’t be sure). My designer is taking off on a European adventure and my time is so limited now because of the new job. FREE Earrings (sweet!) If you’ve been on the […]

October 13, 2009

I have spent the entire afternoon drafting this post, deleting it and then writing it again. I can’t find the words so I am just going to tell you… last week I accepted an offer to go back to work full-time. I would explain but I deleted it all. This is just such a tremendously […]

Where did it go?

October 4, 2009

Last I checked Benjamin had just learned how to walk. We still spent every night together cuddling up on one another in between play time bouts that included the likes of hide-and-go seek crawling and tickle attacks. My biggest worry when I took this picture was whether or not that scar from a fall he […]

Scrambled Eggs and AP Lit

October 1, 2009

A few weeks ago I got an e-mail inviting me to speak to four AP Lit classes. The teacher, one Mr. David Rickert, had been turned onto my blog by his wife and thought my philosophies on dating and love could serve as a great guide for his students in conjunction with the books they […]
