The hubby and I are trying to find the humor in the fact that we’ve been at home for the last few weeks and the weather’s been uncharacteristically miserable the entire time. I mean, that’s funny, right? No. No, it’s not. And it’s not the only thing that’s been dragging me down: NASA’s footage of…

And as they walked the tiny streets and explored the seaside, they realized something was absent from…

I am in a great mood this morning. A stupidly-happy, wonderful mood. Because yesterday, Rand came home. And if you read Thursday’s post about my sleepless nights without my hubby, you know what this means – that last night, I slept EIGHT AND A HALF FULL HOURS. It was awesome. So, TGIF. And TGRH (Thank…

SF Ross photo by Rojer, via Flickr.com. Kids, I’m beginning to worry.

Such is true of my mother (though really, she may be more attracted to crazy…

  • I can't believe my trip to #Cambodia was almost exactly three years ago. That was when I had the pleasure of meeting Lucky the elephant at a wildlife refuge. She was a teenager, and definitely acting the part. . . .

  • Rand told me this was the first weekend in a long time that he didn't spend at his computer. We could barely remember the last time we went to Bainbridge, but holy cats did we pick a good day for it. #randaldineselfie #selfiesonaboat #bainbridgeisland
  • Dinosaurs.
  • I am absolutely blown away by @somekindofalibrary's gorgeous photo and review of my book. I'm near tears on the lightrail right now (it's been an emotional week). Thank you so much, Renée!
