Mineral-Based Sunscreen Favorites

It snowed here yesterday, but the week before was relatively warm and dry and I got a taste of the sticky, dusty summer of childminding before me. I spent time outside with the girls every day and we completely used up last summer's sunscreen stash. We replenished our supply with our favorite chemical-free options: continue reading

Budget & Thrift List: Ten-Item Wardrobe Spring/Summer 2017

I've committed to shopping secondhand through the end of summer, as part of the Fairdare. Additionally—full disclosure—I'm a little in debt to my clothing budget, after splurging on the Elizabeth Suzann sale in December!

Recording these things before the season's end ensures that nothing is forgotten and I can then more effectively plan my shopping…continue reading

Grown-Up Grilled Cheese

Nearly eleven years ago, when my husband and I were first married, we took a meandering road trip from Denver to Baltimore (actually, we were moving back to Baltimore for me to return to art school, but I didn't stick with it!). On that road trip, we visited one of my husband's childhood friends from Michigan and…continue reading

My girls are five and two and the people who have encouraged me the most during these mothering years are actually those who are going through the exact same thing right now.
