My Nana is in the hospital and people are taking care of her. The quality of her care is a matter of life and death. Her moments seem more important now that she’s here. I am mother. Now I know what it means to take care of someone twenty-four hours a day, seven days of [...]


dpp ’10 :: Nourish

by flowers on December 20, 2010 · 7 comments

It’s the darkest day of the year and the moon promises to eclipse for the first time on Solstice in 372 years. This matches what feels like a very special holiday season for us. It’s baby’s first Christmas and this year, more than any other, we are focusing on traditions and special moments. In honor [...]


dpp ’10 :: The First Gift of Christmas

by flowers on December 8, 2010 · 3 comments

Today we received our first gift of Christmas and it warmed my heart better than a shiny new Kindle.

I’ve invited a series of guest posters to contribute as we welcome the newest member of our family. Please welcome the wise words of Kelly who blogs over at Sage Tribe. You know that feeling- that one that sometimes starts out because of something small- maybe a stubbed toe, a hang nail, or a mean look- and it [...]


Friday’s Flowers :: Good Friends

by flowers on June 18, 2010 · 19 comments

(My Friday’s Flowers which were gifted to me at my Mother’s Blessingway.) Life can be a roller coaster sometimes: thrilling, but filled with heart-stopping drops, surprising twists and a seemingly endless ride. I certainly know this right now. Whether it’s welcoming our third child any moment into our tiny 750 sq/ft home, relying solely on [...]
