Hello and hello!

I’m typing with a kitten in my lap. Our house is littered with kitty toys and string. Summer is right around the corner and we are counting the days until school lets out. It’s all good!

Wishing you a creative week!

Best thoughts,

We are three or four times blessed.


I’ve been asked to write a piece on getting kids to eat healthy. Most days I manage, but keep in mind I’m a mom who once fed her kid hamburgers for dinner three days running. If you have a clever tip on how to get finicky kids to eat something besides chicken nuggets please post it on my blog…
