a matter of trust

May 30th, 2012

Eight years ago today, two became one. Or, more accurately, four became one.

By then I was underweight, in compromised health and using every ounce of strength I had to take care of my […]

I am not a fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants cook. I so admire people who can just grab bits of this and that from the fridge and pantry and throw a meal together. That is definitely NOT me. I cook from recipes and like to know in advance what I’m making for dinner each night. And because my day […]

I had this one NAILED. I couldn’t wait to share what was sure to be one of our most awesome trips ever. As an architecture student at Pratt I basically lived in the subways – going to and from school, and on countless outings to New York City. It was the early 80’s, and it […]

d.i.y.: homemade sprinkles

May 25th, 2012

Don’t judge. It’s not like that. I just love sprinkles – they’re my very favorite ice cream topping – which should be no surprise since I love, love all things sugar.

So we’ve talked skin care. And a whole lot about foundation. Let’s move on to eyes, cheeks and lips! photo source: found in mom’s basement  I am, to put it mildly, a make-up minimalist. When I look back at pictures from 20 years ago I am floored by how much makeup I wore (and how […]

Well as if the end of the week wasn’t nice enough,  I got THIS late last night: The very lovely Sara of the wonderful blog Simplify by Sara  gave me a “Kreativ Blogger” award!

This week had its ups and downs, but in the end? All up……….and it was the littlest things, really. My planters and flower beds are starting to come alive – the shapes and colors are pure happy….  And then I got this note from a new friend: I guess I should be writing this to […]

blove: punky and the city

May 16th, 2012

Today’s “blove” goes out to a woman who I would have never “met” (in quotes as we have yet to embrace IRL, but I feel like I know her, if you know what I mean), had it not been for blogging. And it’s these connections – with people from all over the globe, of all different ages […]
