Look Alikes

Look Alikes

My husband, or my baby? Meek found this picture of himself at one year old, and we are flipping over  the similarities. Seriously, if the above didn’t look like it was from 1986 and there wasn’t a basketball sitting next to that blue-clad-baby…I’m not sure I could tell the difference. I obviously had to re-create … Continue reading

Yogurt Berry Tarts with Graham Cracker Crust

It feels like summer, doesn’t it?! If you’ve been reading this little old blog for a year, you will know that summer is my all-time, hands-down, by-far-and-away, no-contest favorite season. I wait all year just to feel those first drops of summer sunshine. I used to think it had a lot to do with the … Continue reading

Garden Couscous Salad

Oh hey there! I’ve really missed you guys. I’ve missed making food, taking pictures of it, and having you all tell me it looks delicious. I’ve missed you inviting yourself over for dinner. I’ve missed you all telling me that you want to nibble on my baby’s cheeks.  That’s not weird, right? Oh and speaking … Continue reading

Guest Post: Yes, I Want a Casserole.

My guest post today is from Janeeetha. No, she doesn’t really spell her name like that, but I picture it that way in my head. And when I picture Janetha in my head, I imagine her standing in my front yard being drowned by boxes of swag. Because that actually happened. I got to meet … Continue reading

Gratitude

Gratitude

Whenever I was sad, or in a bad mood as a kiddo, my mom always suggested that we write down as many things as we could think of to be grateful for. Usually, we’d get a big yellow legal pad out, and she’d start. I was always huffing and rolling my eyes when we started, … Continue reading

Guest Post: Lindsay’s How To Series Kickoff

My guest post today comes from Lindsay, one of my very best friends. Or BLENDS. (yeah…we planned the BLEND Retreat together.) Actually, she twisted my arm into planning the BLEND Retreat with her. I’m so glad she did. And I’m so glad she wrote this post for me. I’m back from Texas, and officially back … Continue reading

Guest Post: Ashley’s Edible Perspective

My guest poster today, Ashley, doesn’t really need an introduction. You’re probably already in love with her blog, her breakfasts, her photography, and her sweet face, like I am. She introduced me to IKEA in Denver. We hiked the Flatirons in Boulder together. We’ve taken more self- portrait iphone pictures than I can count. We … Continue reading

Guest Post: Apple Cranberry Pie

Wonderful, wonderful readers…how do I begin to thank you for your outpouring of love and kindness? Your comments, emails, messages and tweets have been a surprising source of comfort over the last few days. Thank you, thank you, thank you. While I’m taking a little more time to be with family and recharge, I have … Continue reading

Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day

My sweet, wonderful, amazing best-friend-of-a-mother passed away on Mother’s Day. To say that I am sad would be the understatement of a lifetime. I’m crushed. My heart is broken. I am worried about my dad. I am worried about my brothers. I am angry that I only got 27 years with her. I am baffled … Continue reading

Happy Birthday

Happy Birthday

It’s been a year! A year since this beautiful little child came into my life. I can, without a doubt, say that this last year has been the absolute best of my life. People always ask me isn’t being a mom the hardest job you’ve ever had? Um, not even close. Try raising 30 kids … Continue reading
