You’re Coming, Right?

Before my pregnancy addled brain drops the ball again, I don’t want to forget to mention the Faith and Family Mom�s Day Away event in Stoneham, MA on April 2. (I’ll just link to Dorian’s roundup because I’m too lazy to put all the links into my own post. ) Some of my favorite bloggy […]

Gypsy Laundry

A bright splash of color on a dreary February day. One of the presents the girls got for Epiphany were some silk scarves along with the promise that we would dye them soon. Today about a month later we finally got around to doing the dying. It took me several trips to the grocery store […]
