Living in this space

We moved in April. From one part of suburbia to an even more suberby suberbia. To a house on a street named Sleepy Hollow that we own instead of rent. It has a fenced in yard, and neighbors we've hardly met. There's a beautiful bike trail right down the street that I have yet to discover past three miles. We planted three tomato plants in our small garden. The house is coming along with freshly painted walls, and a long list of projects we are slowly tackling. We have yet to...

Summer

There's so much to like about summer. All the fresh produce, especially tomatoes (my favorite!). Pool days and tan lines. [gallery ids="3188,3173,3177,3225" type="rectangular"] The scent of sunscreen paired with a cold drink. Evenings filled with walks to the park and leisurely bike rides.

Before baby, my days usually started at 6 a.m. when I would get a 30-60 min workout in, shower, prepare my lunch and make it to work by 9 a.m. (ok ok, more like 9:15). I have one. Just one little baby on the verge of becoming a toddler. In theory,...

Post Election Feels

It's been about a week, and I'm still processing. Here are some thoughts as of lately: I was shocked by Donald Trump's victory. I did not see it coming, and was assuring friends up until Election Day that there was no way this could happen. I hardly took him seriously the entire time. This is problematic. People of color have been telling us this is the country they live in for years. They have been saying Donald Trump has plenty of support, and could very well win. But because I...
