Things I love about summer: I love the heat and humidity. I love long days and a good cricket serenade. I love the swimming pool, popsicles dripping down my kids’ chins and berries, berries, berries. I’m three-quarters watermelon and one-half cucumber pretty much all of June and July. I love not being able to see my […]

I’ve waited a few weeks, or maybe months, to share the news that at long – very long – last, we have three children who consistently sleep through the night. Little A turned 3 in June and with her newfound “big kid” status she has developed quite a competitive nature. In sum, the girl likes to […]

February came to an odd sort of end in the U.S. South with a winter storm that left places like Little Rock and Nashville dealing with ice then snow, and days off of school. Atlanta was right at the edge of the frozen precipitation line. Friends in the northern suburbs experienced decent snow. Intown, we […]

This isn’t going to be one of those posts where I tell you to put down your cellphone because “they’re only little once.” I have three kids, and sometimes the first eight minutes on the playground represent the only chunk of the day that I have to return phone calls, emails and texts without someone screaming, […]

The kids spent their second day at Camp MEOW at the L family’s house, which is clearly a creative mecca. I walked in after teaching and a subsequent appointment to find their dining room table covered in drawings, logos, sales materials, coins and worksheets. The kids have made the decision to have a “pop up” […]

This week, a friend and I are running our own little “budding entrepreneurs” summer camp for our kids. We each have a rising 1st grader, a rising 2nd grader, and a “baby sister.” Our friends, the Ls, run a business from their home. We will leverage their business experience plus my blogging, writing and recipe creation to […]

Thanks so much for your amazing response to yesterday’s post on social media triggers. I love what everyone shared through comments, Facebook, texts, and emails. We’ll revisit the theme next week, but feel free to continue to discuss here and on (ironically enough) social media. I haven’t nagged you guys to hang enough lately. For […]
