I Really Wuv Ken Burns

Well worth the short five-minute watch. I love his 1+1=3 analogy and the thought that his work is an attempt to wake the dead. I have often thought that bringing back the dead inspires me to write, or often the desire to hold on to life, because it could be gone in a moment. I’m […]

Emotions and Inequities

I expected to get choked up at Honor’s Day. But not for this reason. The elementary school holds Honors Day every semester, and the Principal gives out awards to all the kids (1st through 5th – no K.) They get awards like Citizenship Award, Academic Award, and Principal’s Honor Award. They get awards for finishing […]

Daisies’ Bridging Ceremony

I know. I have been terrible about writing on my blog. Someone told me the other day that they worked with a girl who knew me because she reads my blog? And i thought, “damn. She must be really bored.” Anyway, here are some photos from the first grade bridging ceremony last week. Kindergarteners like […]

Quint

This past Saturday was a year since I lost Quint. Luckily, I was at the beach, I shed a little tear and moved on. But i have been thinking a ton about him this week. I love Brody, but they are not the same dog. Quint was smart and funny, and the biggest waggie butt […]

F*cksock

This morning, I miraculously got the kids up and ready for school today with time to spare. I sat sipping my coffee on the couch until time to get the kids in the car, with Tiller, Rollie, and Brody (the dog) all sitting beside me. I checked my email while the kids read Rollie’s Encyclopedia […]

Tills Slays Me

I just love her little bones. Not sure how I forgot to post the St. Patty’s one back in March. . . And my personal favorite. It is hard to see in the scan, but the girl is saying ‘it’s a Lepercon:’

Spring Break 2012

We did the Spring Break thing. A few days on Hilton Head (Todd had a shoot this week: Bad advertising world! Bad!) and then we did the lake for Easter with the whole family. About 24 hours of my family in one small 2BR lakehouse is all I can take, no matter how much I […]

Something New, Something Me

Todd gave me a Kindle Fire about a month ago. I already had a Kindle and loved it. I was hesitant about the Kindle Fire. I still have mixed feelings about giving up my old one. I kind of liked having a device just for reading, with no distractions. I also miss the standard Kindle […]

Girls Gone Mild 2012: Tybee Island

This time last week, I was on Tybee. Gawd, I love that place. Reminds me of everything that is awesome in life: Beach, warm sun, sand, marshes and birds, beer, kids and “yes, Ma’am,” and fresh seafood, and my grandparents, and being a Georgian. Say what you will (and leave politics out of it), but […]
