yes; september. or should i say october. we are just 1 day away from it.

here i am finally getting back to updating.

i'm not quite sure of my absence. well, let's just say i can't remember all the "to-dos" on my list over the last nine months. :) expecting your second child with a full-time job, a two-year old and much more leaves me with little free time to explore. but i'm taking it slow now just waiting for #2 to arrive. #1 is still at daycare and i am home taking a break from work. i thought i might be a little bored, but NO way! i'm enjoying my leave. i need some much-needed rest from work and some time to myself. who knows how long this will last (maybe another week?). but here are a few things on my list:

- watch a movie!
- read: my fav blogs, a new book, and relaxation techniques during labor
- bake cupcakes for a welcome celebration for the new baby (really, for #1)
- knit a baby hate
- have lunch with great friends
- spend a night-out (alone) with my wonderful husband
- pick tiles for our new bathroom and countertopes for the new kitchen
- take naps

i hope to be reporting back with a birth story and a baby picture soon.

oh, please

“I haven’t eaten red meat for 40 years. I wish I could give up chicken (except free-range) but then I’m down to fish which seem a) tainted, and b) endangered. By the way, I don’t not eat meat mainly for health reasons but also because I had an epiphany walking through Les Halles at the age of 23 that eating meat is disgusting, arrogant, oblivious and unconscionably cruel. Moving on … I try increasingly to eat only organic veggies and fruit.” - Candice Bergen (via

there isn't one bit of this that doesn't make me question everything about candice.  is she delusional? does she really think she is a vegetarian when she eats meat?

it's amazing how a few sweet little words and a smile can lighten up your day.

today was one of those difficult days where i felt like giving up.  and, for me that's pretty bad; i'm a positive person.  the glass is always half-full.  though today was really rough.  i wanted to give in so many times and just quit.  but the minute that little girl of mine sees me, smiles big and wide, and runs over to say "hi, mommy.  i missed you"--wow! that just erases everything else.

march 1

lots going on in my neck of the woods.  lots of thinking, planning, hoping and dreaming.  sometimes i think i'm spinning my wheels other times i think it's progress.  we, humans, are so funny. 

last night i went to a friend's house for a lovely dinner of delish thai food and fire spinning.  have you seen this?  i wasn't quite sure what to expect.  but i absolutely loved the fire dancing.  who knew?  it was a lovely, lovely night.  the best part was seeing this group in a new light.  they were all so giving--giving of their talents, presents, and laughter.  i wish every night was like that.

Etsy Favorites

i just love these two items. the first, a cute ruffled purse from handmadebyhank, would be perfect for weekends. i'm think a weekend trip to sausalito. and these bunny notecards from AshleyPahl would be perfect for easter. while it's some time away, i've already been thinking about a cute dress for little d to go easter egg hunting in.
