I’ve talked about tattoos before. I have a love affair with tattoos. Not the obnoxious, in your face kind. The special ones. Reserved for the most precious of reasons. I’m not poetic about very many things, but there is something impossibly romantic about the thought of etching a memory permanently into your flesh. Which says […]

Father’s Day 4: It just keeps getting better.

June 18, 2010

I never know what to get Andy for Father’s Day. His first father’s day, I got him a bunch of framed pictures of Jude for his desk, and a set of expensive lobster shell cracker things. Andy: I love these pictures.  What is this metal thing?  A tuning fork? me:  A tuning fork?  No, it’s […]

Have you ever been driving somewhere, and, before you know it, you’re there and you have no idea how you got there. I haven’t been present for a while. My body was here, and every so often, familiar words would escape from my mouth, but for months, my mind was somewhere else, and my heart […]

Gigi and all things lovely.

April 30, 2010

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.

April 13, 2010

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 […]

For Andy.

April 5, 2010

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 […]

The girl.

One thing I learned early on, if you call in sick, always say it’s with diarrhea, because nobody ever questions you when you say you have diarrhea. Same thing with parenting. The baby is fussy, the boys are screaming and asking for, I don’t know, stuff, ANY STUFFS WILL DO, and Andy is playing Xbox, […]

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.

February 10, 2009

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 […]
