Hi.

Welcome to my place.

I write about about being a 40-something mum of five wonderfully exasperating children, attachment parenting, my adventures in the kitchen, and whatever else comes to mind.

Silly Things That Make Me Melty

  • mix discs (yes, how junior high is that?)
  • slighty scruffy men in really nice, yet rumpled, suits (ok, I've been watching a bit much of TW, S1 lately LOL)
  • completely unexpected compliments
  • older swing/jazz stuff like Cole Porter, Gerswhin, Ellington, etc
  • people who like to sing along to them as much as I do
  • quiet 3am conversations
  • impromptu inexpensive gifts --neat vintage books, a silly old bottle, an abandoned photo rescued from a thrift shop, an old box, a wooden spool of thread.. stuff that shows someone was thinking about the things I really enjoy
  • crisp fall mornings with a warm spash of sunrise and the crinkly scent of dry leaves

These are just a few of the things that make me a tad weak in the knees. What does it for you?
