Gigi and all things lovely.


For the life of me, I couldn’t remember what Andy got me for my birthday last year. I think monumental gifts stopped about four years ago.  We were too tired for intricacy.  Had too much baggage for quick getaways.  And, our birthdays were always kinda backburnered to the ordering of Lightning McQueen cakes and Bounce […]

About Wyatt.


It’s almost 3am, and I am on a futon. Six years ago, this would have been a much different scene.  One with white eyeshadow, OAR and probably vomit.  Or, at the very least, some dry heaving. These days, Andy and I find ourselves on the futon for very different reasons. Mostly monsters. Sometimes ghosts. We […]

I met Andy when I was 15. He got in a car accident in front of my house at the start of summer, walked up and asked to use the phone, and he never left. Before Andy, I had mix of odds and ends boyfriends. Mostly just good for kissing and driving me around. Andy […]

I will hum this song all day. In honor of Maddie, on her birthday, please consider donating to Friends of Maddie, a charity started in […]



I didn’t forget to put this up officially on Father’s Day.  I was just too caught up in celebrating my husband yesterday…with BBQ ribs and hand jobs.  But, I did write this post for him in a totally timely fashion, so that the world can know that he is completely awesome, and his kids adore […]

And enough.

In March of 2005, I lost one of my dearest friends. My cooking buddy. My business partner. A girl who stood up for me on my wedding day, and spent the night before stuffed into bed with me as we giggled about weddings and babies and boys. She was an artist, a singer, and my […]

4 years ago today.

13 years ago, I met him. He was quiet, played golf and liked to wear shoes. I let him kiss me and be my boyfriend anyways. We fell completely in love. He asked me to marry him.(I said yes.) It was a fabulous evening of dancing, drinking, chinese food and poker. Complete bliss. 4 years […]
