I know I have raved about my Mamie's brownies before, but seriously...they are The Best. You can not mess them up, no matter what you do. Believe me, I have tried. I have added everything out of order. I haven't beaten the eggs beforehand. I never sift the dry ingredients together. And each batch? Purrrrrrfection.Lately, [...]

A rambling list of new things.
So I gave up on last week's New Thing and have moved on to a New, New Thing.Just kidding. But really, I know you want to know how the New Thing is progressing. Fine and dandy, actually. I'm not here to chat about that this morning, however. Today...a list. Just for you, Di.1. Beach week [...]
A mother-daughter afternoon.

I don't want to be an empty-nester. Yet. Maybe [...]

Sixteen years...but wasn't it just yesterday that...I threw up in the kitchen sink after opening the can of green beans...thus confirming that yes, I was indeed pregnant. Philip was exactly 3 months old at this time. When I got the call from the doc's [...]
And he was like…and she was like…and then I did this dance…
Living with a teenage daughter is SO VERY different from living with a teenage son, although they both crack me up on a continuous basis.My Girl is so different from what I was like one month shy of my 16th birthday.
