while you wait.

To quote Julie’s words, “forecast: 100% chance of depressing.” That’s been the deal outside and women all week that I have talked to have echoed this how-low-can-we-go kind of attitude. If you are feeling out of sorts, you’re not alone. I have reached my tipping point today. And I am not subscribing for a single [...]

storage room * secrets.

I heard a bird chirp and saw some melting snow and puddles forming. Ahh…. to the storage room I go!! But really??? And no loveliness of spring down here! I have been here before—this view. Yea, I’ve gone so far as to take a peek – maybe shoving things around a little. Shuffle shuffle. The [...]

happy february!

Thanks Julie for your adorable take on the month of February. It’s the kind of calendar you’ll want to gaze at, letting your eye’s sink in while sipping English tea from your grandmothers china set.

restful thoughts.
