At long last, the signs of Spring are emerging all over Atlanta. The azaleas and dogwoods are bursting out everywhere and I’m starting to think about switching out my kids’ closets. I try to wait until the very last cold spell passes before I switch everything out, and I am not quite confident we are […]

It’s baseball season and I’m a whiner. My son plays in the neighborhood league, where they warn you that failure to participate will mean you won’t be a part of the league next year. And participate? Well, that means two practices and two games per week. Did I mention he’s six? I prioritize family dinners, […]

Letting It Go

What parent among us is not suffering from lunacy on this Presidents’ Day, 2014? If you are on the east coast, you have likely endured an above average number of “snow days,” and I use the term loosely because it is not a foregone conclusion here in the ATL that a snow day will actually […]

This week’s art installment comes courtesy of my five-year old, M. These are my kind of snowflakes because I can enjoy without any of the side effects that cold weather brings. Surely I am not the only one feeling like she needs to unfurl her body after cold, icy, snowy, or illness-filled days? My friends in […]

I just love Japanese Maples in the fall.  I snapped this picture outside my neighbors’ house.  Their Japanese Maple turned the most delicious colors and dropped all of its leaves at once, creating a carpet of gorgeous on the sidewalk. Speaking of delicious and fall, these Ginger Molasses Cookies look so amazing.  I’ve recently had […]

My big kids’ Fall Break was last Thursday and Friday.  We normally trek to my mom’s but that’s a five-hour drive minimum and given that I haven’t had a full night of sleep in fifteen months, three weeks and four days (but who’s counting?) I just didn’t feel safe getting behind the wheel for an […]

When I am pressed for time and need a simple supper for my crew, I almost always make a frittata. Last weekend, we spent Sunday afternoon at a darling pumpkin patch that is 100% full of Southern kitsch.  We shot corn cobs from pneumatic guns, watched pig races, rode a cow tractor, and more.  We […]

Plum Nut Crumble

My kids were flipping through cookbooks the other day, talking about which recipes they can and cannot have.  My middle child, M, is very gluten intolerant and so she goes through saying, “glue-ten,” “glue-ten,” “no glue-ten.” They stumbled upon a fruit crumble that looked delish, but fell squarely in the “glue-ten” category.  So, my oldest […]

Since I skipped last week, I have loads and loads of goodies for you. But first, I offer up this glorious burst of color from my 6-year-old. Speaking of my kids, I made this Coconut Flour Zucchini Bread from Small Footprint Family and I am pretty sure they have never raved so much about any other Paleo-style […]
