LoveBombing Homemade Blueberry Pies

Recently we were given pints and pints of blueberries. There were so many blueberries! We gave many boxes away but even then, were left with many more boxes. Teapot wanted to help me make blueberry pie. A few months ago I had picked up small, disposable pie tins. I said, "Let's make mini pies and LoveBomb* our neighbors!" She was all over it! She got out the aprons, put one on Little Man and we all got to work.  We made a mess, but we had so much fun! *LoveBombing is an act of preparing and serving a meal or a … [Read more...]

Dress for the Day~A Color Story

Sometimes my outfit inspires my day. But, sometimes my day inspires my outfit. I could be at a museum or a boutique and see a painting or a chair whose colors or pattern stays with me, marinates in my mind and later inspire pieces from my wardrobe to be combined in a new way.

And may just … [Read more...]

Piercings, Tattoos & Bonding with Your Teen

Baker Boy bribed me. He said, "Mom, if you take me to get my tregus  pierced, I'll pay to have your nosed pierced." Yup, he did. Yes, he wanted something for himself, a ride to the piercing/tattoo shop and he was willing to pay to make it happen. But, as a mama of 3 teenage boys, I like to think there is an unspoken need in between those lines.  He didn't ask his dad or his brother (who drives), he asked me. I know a lot of parents who are against piercings and tattoos. Many of whom I call friend. I have a very good friend who … [Read more...]

Farm Fresh Baby Radish Appetizer

We were having life long friends over for dinner and it's been a while. These friends have known Chris Ann and I for over 18 years. They have been through the storms and triumphs of life with us and our families. They are the kind of friends that even though you only see each other once or twice a year, pick up right where you left off. They are the kind of friends we know, know matter where we are in life, if we needed them, they'd come running. To be honest, Devon and I needed them. We've been wrestling over some possible big … [Read more...]
