This is the one of the only patches of green grass in my yard. Why is this fancy grass so green? I have no idea. Because oh guess what, the rest of my yard looks like this. Yes, this. A few weeks out of town + a water shortage + water rationing + suffocating heat. [...]
I haven’t talked about the all barns on this property, have I? There are technically five of them. And they are all full. Very full of oddly unique things that my Great Uncle created. The contents of these barns most likely warrant an entire blog all unto themselves. I’m not going to start another blog [...]
So as I’ve mentioned, I went to this conference this weekend. It’s the fifth time I’ve attended, and each year, I bring home less. On purpose. This was my bed at this conference in 2009. The first photo is what I brought home this time. Philosophy red velvet cake lip gloss. And Rose Art colored [...]
Sometimes at these conferences and things, there are so many conference things to do that I never leave the hotel and I might as well be in Duluth or Toledo or I don’t know. Wherever. So Allison and I ran off for a bit and went to the beach and reminded ourselves that we were [...]
I’ll post more on this next week, but today you should know that I interviewed the funnysmartbeautiful Wendi McLendon-Covey, who is even more fantastic in person, and who I’m happy to report is my new best friend.

This time, to her/mine/and everyone’s surprise, they built a bathroom for her in the middle of the party. Weird. But fun. The People’s Party Founders and Pottygoers and Hostesses. Oh. Also. [...]
Photo by Aran Goyoaga at Cannelle et Vanille. Sooner than later I would like to learn more about how to take beautiful photos of food. (Like my hero Aran Goyoaga at Cannelle et Vanille. That’s her photo above. Go get addicted to her site.) This is very high on my learning list. It’s such an [...]
I’m not sure there’s much more to say. It’s hot, y’all. 107 today. However, unlike Harry, I did keep my clothes on the entire day. And unlike Harry, I didn’t play Legos all day. So I really can’t explain how this happened when I went to the airport this evening. But that just happened. Oh [...]
We came home from the beach to a kitchen that looked like this. Not like this. It seems Tropical Storm Don blew away the butterflies. Well done, Don. Well done.
It’s been real. But we’re headed home.
