just know you’re not alone

If your life is a little messy, a little not-so-instagrammy, a little frazzled and mis-matched, I’d like to quote Phillip Phillips and say, “just know you’re not alone.”


If you woke up thinking it was going to be cold but ended up being bathed in the loveliest shade of sunshine, if you tried a new recipe and ate burgers at the picnic table with your great big family, if your little sister picked up a worn-out tennis racket and started “playing” a song, and you thought about how great it is that we’ve made this place her home, then you’re not alone.


If you spent your week not at all how you thought, splashing with a little beauty queen in her water games, staying home from class with a horrendous headache but finally finding time write back to the pen-pals who have been waiting since October, if you tried to plan a movie night and it broke off into two and they’re on their way over now, then you’re not alone.



Are you having an interesting week? A week which makes you think that blogging will only make people think that you’re weird, that your life doesn’t make any sense? Join the club! And leave a comment. :)

good times: photos

Dear You,
My last post was a little drab. No apologies here, just telling it like it is. Sometimes life is drab. But sometimes it can be positively blissful. Let’s focus on those times tonight, shall we?

The darling Eliza Love is a great friend of ours. Ten months ago she moved eight hours away.
It was sad. We cried. But she was kind enough to spend her Spring Break with us!

For a moment, all was right in the world…
Stepping out.

Eliza and I. And rootbeer. I repeat: ROOTbeer.
Good times outside with Mr. Lizardio

I’m never going to get over that nose.

Or those lashes. 

Can you guess who’s hiding in the hammock?

Yup. We’re pretty obsessive about photographing this chick.

She’s quite thoughtful when it comes to birthdays.
Springtime yard work! Now that we’ve actually gotten rain, we have to mow again!
Isn’t Sam just the cutest?
Feelin’ manly.


posy + thimble

In November, I made the spur of the moment decision to purchase a pair of mice. I’ve always wanted mice…they’re so bookish and classic and cute, and now I have some! Two sisters, Posy (blond) and Thimble (gray.)

Would you like to meet them?


Does that elephant look frightened to you?

Thimby is shy and more difficult to photograph…
And they’re very literary. Of course.
Thanks to Birdie/Fairlight for the photo shoot!
