A Quiet April

I'm stepping away from blogging for the month of April, to spend time with family and hopefully invest a bit of time in my bag-making endeavor.

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.

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
