Making Stuff Together - a Giveaway

  I am one of those crafty mamas, at least in my heart. I wander through holiday craft fairs and cruise etsy and ravelry for inspiration. I adore fabrics and wool and have a stash of both that is overflowing the hutch and bins I had so generously designated as my craft space. My list of things I want to make is rather long, and my intentions are good, they truly are. Here’s the catch – since I became a mom my crafty side as taken a back seat. Like the back seat of a school bus. And I only have two kids. When I do manage to work on a project I am in... read more

Air travel with kids can be full of excitement

Summer vacation time is here. Kids are out of school and it’s the time of year when many families start thinking about travel adventures. Having family living in France gives us the opportunity to make the journey every few years. Not often enough for our boys to see their “Meme” and “Pepe”. I wrote this story a few years ago when I traveled alone (my husband was to meet us later) with my two sons, then aged 4 and 6, on the long flight from Phoenix to London, then on to Lyon, France and finally a two hour drive to Fontaine a suburb of Grenoble. After a long... read more

birthday buddies and a not-so-empty nest

I was born one minute after Christmas, and I’ve always felt special because of it.* So when, on my birthday six months after Tim and I got married, our nephew Nick was born, I suddenly had my own birthday buddy—somebody with whom I could share this specialness—as well as ensuing birthday celebrations. That was 24 birthdays ago, many of which Nick and I have celebrated together. The last two Decembers, though, he’s been on the other side of the planet in a tiny third-world village in Mali, and I’ve wondered when we’ll be in the same room for a birthday... read more
