Post image for dpp ’11: Joy to the World

oy to the world. The big world. And the little world that lives inside our tiny home. Where Lego adventurers boldly go where no little plastic (wo)man has gone before and a little girl clamors for an old school calculator and holds it up to her ear because she thinks it’s a smart phone. Joy [...]


dpp ’10 :: Snow

Christmas has climaxed. Our bellies are full, our hearts are warm and the kids have fun new toys. Best of all we finally have snow! This is the last installment of the December Photo Project. Even though I didn’t actually post everyday I had a really good time grabbing shots from everyday and keeping up [...]


dpp ’10 :: Complete

by flowers on December 24, 2010 · 2 comments

We start celebrating Christmas a full day early so we can share time with both sides of the family. This was “Meme’s Christmas Eve” and I’m living my life with my heart wide open. Everything seems that much more special and alive and this morning I realized why. For the first time our family feels [...]


“People say Christmas is too much work and stress. And it is. For adults. But take away the madness of buying and hurrying and doing and fitting Christmas into already too busy lives, take away an adult’s worry about work and bills and the future, and look at Christmas only through a child’s eyes, and [...]


dpp ’10 :: Good Cheer

by flowers on December 15, 2010 · 0 comments

In lieu of our regularly scheduled BirthNet meeting we invited our community to meet for drinks at a local (and might I add swanky) watering hole. While a small group of individuals can surely make a big difference they also must let their hair down once in awhile to share, laugh and be jolly. Good [...]


(photo by Solshine) We had an amazing day yesterday. The incidences that unfolded are trite when picked apart, but the miracle of it all is the way life swells with hope, mystery and magic. Our Reality We’ve been having a hard time–there’s no way around it. Our family grew before we were ready and we’ve [...]


dpp ’10 :: Believing is Up to You

by flowers on December 10, 2010 · 13 comments

Unsurprisingly there has been a flurry of blog posts this past week declaring whether their family believes in Santa or not. Some moms feel like encouraging kids believing in Santa is part of the magic and wonder of childhood while others (and others) don’t want to lie to their kids. Both Stone and I grew [...]


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. An older couple who befriended and supported us when we first moved to town without friends, families or jobs (a story for another day) stopped by to see the baby and visit. They only stayed for [...]


December ’10 Photo Project :: Anticipation

by flowers on December 1, 2010 · 0 comments

We picked out our Christmas tree in steady rain, but our spirits were not dampened. She’s the sweetest little tree and our home smells all fresh and pine-y. This shot perfectly sums up our present moment: transition. In the background you can see our bags, still not unpacked from our Thanksgiving road trip and yet [...]


Holiday Cheer & a Give-Away

by flowers on December 14, 2009 · 8 comments

Being Monday, I promised you all the final installment of the holiday give-away. There will be a give-away at the end of the post, but my planned holiday treat will be postponed a day or two while I wait for the beautiful, squishy package to come in the mail. In the meantime I’ll catch you [...]
