Laugh

by Stacey

When ‘laugh’ came up as the prompt for today, I almost chose another. Between Harvey and Irma and the general Trump-ness of our country right now, nothing seems all that funny. That said, I suppose Katherine Hepburn is right. It is still important to remember that things are fun. So here goes… a collection of […]

Rhythm

by Stacey

“Rhythm is one of the most powerful of pleasures, and when we feel a pleasurable rhythm we hope it will continue. When it does, it grows sweeter.” Mary Oliver Last week I mentioned that I am working my way back through an on-line class that I took years ago called 31 More Things. In this […]

Daydreams

by Stacey

Day Dreams* I don’t often remember my dreams and I’m jealous of those that do. I’ve tried to keep a notebook by my bed to write them down but somehow that never works. I don’t tend to wake up in the middle of the night (thank goodness!) unless called upon by a child or animal. […]

Picture Book Therapy

by Stacey

On Saturday, a week after Charlottesville, I realized what I needed to help me feel even a tad bit better about the state of our world. I needed picture book therapy. I read picture books with the girls each and every day for years and years and years. In fact, Katherine and I read pictures […]

by Stacey

  When I read this tweet on Saturday afternoon, I felt sick to my stomach. What was I doing? I was cleaning out Katherine’s closet. I had to turn off the tv because I was so upset and disgusted (and this was before anyone died at the hands of an evil message and messenger) and […]

In each episode of this fictional drama, members of the FBI’s Behavioral Analysis Unit (BAU) are […]

Happy Fourteenth Birthday!

by Stacey

Dear Caroline, Today you turn fourteen. I’ve been writing these birthday letters for a long time now but I am always amazed that another year has passed. Each July I am reminded of Gretchen Rubin’s quote, “The days are long but the years are short.” Somehow, each year, while still 365 days long, seems to […]

What I’m Into (May 2017)

by Stacey

I haven’t written much lately. This blog seems to a be a collection of posts starting with those same words. I’m going to try again and see if I can get my writing habit to stick this time. I miss writing in this space. I miss writing in general so here goes. I decided to […]

Happy Birthday Katherine

by Stacey

Each year, I mark the girl’s birthdays here with a letter and thoughts from the year. Today feels like a really big one. Our baby is eleven! Dear Katherine, I remember when you turned ten. I thought you were getting to be so big. Double digits after all. Today you turn eleven and this milestone […]

The Right Book for Right Now

by Stacey

I know I am not alone in suffering from a type of brain fog these days. I am often pretty distracted but in recent months, I have really struggled to focus. I am pulled toward the news of the day in a way that makes me anxious and unsettled but I can’t stop watching, scrolling […]
