A Rallying Cry for Big-Time Help

We’ve had the storm of the decade menacing and then tearing up the east coast, and it feels kinda weird to be all HEY! A GOOD THING HAPPENED, but…a good thing DID happen, and I have to talk about it, because I need your help to make it keep happening some more.

Nized: Organ, Part 2 (This title makes sense in my head)

Dear North East Coasties, Hang on. We are praying for you guys. Love, Joss.

Part one is HERE.

Sitting in carpool today, I decided to clean out my glove compartment. Inside, I found a little waxy paper bakery envelope containing a cookie. It was a WHOLE cookie, though some edges had crumbled.

It was a small […]

Typical Sunday Morning

Every self-respecting Disney Princess needs a strompy castle…

The dogs have gone to breakfast. I am lounging in bed with Mango on my chest, and Mr. Husband brings me coffee and gets back in, too. We lie there scritching him in tandem while he looks smug and lets us know he deems our ministrations […]
