The other side

September 3, 2009

I spotted my first fallen leaves in the grass of the baseball diamond near my post office last Thursday. The bag over my shoulder was bursting with little brown packages. Each containing a silver or bronze new leaf necklace destined for one of you. I make this walk to the post office, with Murphy in […]

The Trip Story: Part 3

August 23, 2009

John Bear jumped out of bed at 7:00 am to feed Fiesta Dave’s meter. We’d parked in a haze of exhaustion.  After spending the entire day in New York City we hit a monstrous traffic jam on the way into Philadelphia. Between reading our iPhone maps and asking cab drivers which turn to take next […]

The Trip Story: Part 2

August 19, 2009

As we drove in to New York City and out of the gorgeous Poconos mountains, John Bear and I started wondering if we should have stayed in our peaceful cabin. But we knew his little brother, Patrick, was overdue for a visit. Easily one of the nicest guys on the planet, Patrick gave up his […]

The Trip Story: Part I

August 17, 2009

We got lost on this road, three times. Twice in the dark and once in the daylight when we were running on empty and desperately trying to find a gas station within 10 country miles. We finally did thanks to the kindness of our cabin host who happened to be on the road just as […]

Makeover

July 30, 2009

John Bear and I both got new looks last week. And I think you’re going to love the video… there’s also a back story about our first date. [My favorite part — how he can’t talk after I kiss him.] Thank you Fiesta Dave (you’re an absolute dream) and special thanks to Kevin at Dr. […]

New roommates

July 13, 2009

Within just a few weeks of dating, John Bear had bought Benjamin a Transformer, saying “I couldn’t help it. I hope it’s okay. I just can’t believe he doesn’t have one.” And why would he? I’m a chick (in case you hadn’t noticed) and now that Benjamin is becoming a boy I’m realizing I don’t […]

Which would you rather see?

June 14, 2009

Seeing yourself on the front page of the local Sunday paper’s business section is nice. Definitely. Very nice. But seeing this is even nicer. He has no idea what he’s in for… more pictures from this weekend are in this album, scroll down for the most recent. [Sorry I’ve been scant. Cooking up a few […]

The wow factor.

April 26, 2009

There are few material things that ever really wow me.  Here are two. Benjamin’s new “water boots”. For the first time in three years Benjamin’s father bought him a pair of shoes. He had no way of knowing this but I’ve been trying to find a cool pair of puddle stomping boots for months. But […]

Fiesta Fever

April 5, 2009

I’ve finally made up my mind. On Friday afternoon after the voting closed for my Ford Fiesta graphics with a virtual tie between black flowers and no graphics I was still torn. As hard as I tried I couldn’t picture myself in a car with flowers (albeit cool bad ass funky flowers). When I picked […]
