How I Knew He Was The One

November 25, 2013

When I was in college, I lived alone. At least for a while. While I lived alone, I got a cat. Because I wanted a companion and also because I was an English major and also because, hey, I was alone. And sort of in a quagmire of aloneness where it seemed appropriate to have […]

A Fun Date With Food Trucks

September 19, 2013

You’ve heard of food trucks, yes? A slew of them have rolled into Atlanta in the past year or two. As their popularity has increased, so has Dan’s interest in their offerings. Knowing about his interest in the food trucks and his love for trying new things, and because we don’t get out without the […]

Lucky Number Seven

May 28, 2013

It’s been seven years since I stepped into the sunlight on an unusually blistering afternoon in May wearing a white dress that weighed what felt like 20 pounds. Seven years since we said “I Do” in front of friends and family and then ate cake and drank punch and drove off toward our shared future. […]

The boys

November 14, 2012

“Daddy…” “Hey, Daddy…” “Daddy will be home soon. Then we can play racing!” “Daddy, pick me up.” “Hey, Daddy, let’s play monster trucks.” I love that this boy loves his daddy, and I love that his daddy loves him.

Under the Sea: The Georgia Aquarium

August 12, 2012

Dan was out of town for three days this week on business, Emma had a couple of bad nights, and Joshua’s still refusing to nap. Basically, I want to be Rip Van Winkle and sleep for 100 years. Even after two relatively decent nights of sleep and an excellent nap yesterday. I’ll sleep when my […]

From the vault: A letter

August 2, 2012

Just in case you don’t know already, because you live under a rock or your Internet died or something, I’m in NEW YORK CITY. With a baby. But y’all, NEW YORK CITY! Despite the fact that BlogHer is a blogging conference, blogging while here is challenging because this conference is go-go-go. Right now I’m writing […]

Proof that I shouldn’t grill things

July 13, 2012

I shouldn’t grill things. Probably ever. I mean, we’re pretty gender-advanced in this house most of the time. Dan does dishes and can make a mean chicken parmesan. I install light fixtures and am a master of (almost) all things fried. Neither of us is good at keeping up with laundry or dusting. But there […]

Date night: Just do it.

June 30, 2012

First of all, I had this typed out earlier today and the internet took a dump and WordPress flushed my post. So suck eggs, AT&T. Second, Dan and I went on a date last night and I felt like I should come here and tell y’all about it because that’s what good bloggers do, right? […]

Things I’m Afraid To Tell You–I (can’t) do it myself

June 13, 2012

There are lots of things that I’m afraid of. Lately, it’s that I’m not stacking up as a mother to Joshua. Or that I’ll never fit into my regular clothes again, never mind anything smaller than that. I’m also afraid of my feet hanging over the edge of the bed, getting poop on my hands […]

Perfect for each other

May 26, 2012

Dan and me? We’re pretty perfect for each other. And never is that more apparent than in the every day. When I’m too serious or overthinking things, he doesn’t and sort of brings me back to reality. I like to think I do the same thing for him. Though I usually do it with a […]
