Ok, I admit. I'm feeling overwhelmed. There's a nagging sense that I have a project or multiple projects (!) I'm not completing that are looming over my head unfinished. The real problem is, I don't know what they are exactly. If I knew I could craft a thorough to do list with each major project… Continue reading Making a List
We enjoyed a lovely day (and weekend!) filled with family, fun, and a never ending turkey. The all-day dinner party included the five Bittmans, Maggie's sister Joyce and her dear friend Caroline from Bay Ridge in the City, and Simeon's brother's family from Arlington. It was a full house and I was so grateful that… Continue reading Happy Thanksgiving!
A walk in the woods Hi everyone! I haven't written here in about eight months, but I've been feeling a pull to dust off the blog and get back to putting words to screen. Thanks for sticking with me! Perhaps it's the cozy season of late fall inspiring me to find ways to enjoy life… Continue reading It’s been a while…
When Simeon and I decided to have our first child we went through what felt like a fairly comprehensive check-list of considerations. Do we both want a child? Yes. An obvious question to be sure, but what if the answers were to have differed? What then? Thankfully they did not. Are we healthy? Are we prepared… Continue reading Are we ready for baby #2?
This past weekend we celebrated our two-year old with a perfectly simple, sweet, intimate party. What started out as a plan for a bonanza of a house warming/toddler birthday with all the things and all the people turned into a small gathering of just a couple of friends and grandparents. We decided to move the party from the… Continue reading A Birthday Party for Eli #2
I'm learning to be bold. To claim my space--physical space, mental space. Space has become so important to me. I need space... I started writing this post back in July of last year. I guess this blog post also needed some space of its own... Spaciousness was a word that kept falling onto the contours… Continue reading We’re Moving to Pittsfield!
It's 2017! The start of this new year is not filled with as much joyful expectancy as I'd normally expect to feel. It's hard for me to feel well while watching the calendar flip every closer to Trump's inauguration. I can't help but feel mostly mournful over the future. When I try to muster courage for what's… Continue reading Happy New Year!
I am so weary from the news of the day and my spirit aches for renewal and assurances of a lasting peace. And all the while, Earth has been steadily spinning so that night will come and the moon will rise and tomorrow will bring another dawn. I posted this to Facebook this afternoon. With more… Continue reading I am weary
Happy Thanksgiving, from our family to yours. I feel so lucky to have my family with me in these interesting times. Though there is a lot to feel disheartened about these days, right now I am reveling in my beautiful, healthy, happy family. And for them, I am very, very thankful. May this season remind… Continue reading Happy Thanksgiving!
Summer is well under way but by no means is it too late for a Bucket List! There is so much to see and do here in Vermont and the surrounding areas in the summer. I hope we can cross off quite a few of these activities--especially now that Eli is at an age where… Continue reading Summer Bucket List
