I think I'm finally ready to roll out my "fully committed dad gum it to blogging" already, all the way. Maybe. No, this time I mean it! ;) I think I had to fully rule out all my other options and choices, heyo Libras, but now I think I'm ready. No, now I know I'm ready! Full on! Editorial calendar and all! I'm going to focus on a series of... series, to start. Dipping the toes in lightly. So, chime in if you have a suggestion, 'cause I'm taking requests! Of both oldies and new...ies.

I was going to have a style post all raring to go, but I'd forgotten how long it takes to put them together, so here is a Friday post instead. All the things I've loved this week, to take you on into the weekend.


// The New Yorker is really pulling it off this week with the insect content. This one, When Bees Go Rogue, about bees, and this one, What Termites Can Teach Us, which has alerted me to the tragic under representation our termite population endures. #TermitesToo! (Did you know the New Yorker already has a section for these, titled "Annals of Etymology" ??)

// Dave Matthews Band, and Poopgate.  So good.

// If you don't buy this pajama set right now then I am going to have to, and I am not doing things like that right now, so please.

// Lately, before bed, Huck and I like to catch up on posts from The Dodo, this Instagram account that spotlights various animal rescues and heartwarming stories and super adorable pets. As a bonus, I've noticed the closed captioning has helped Huck learn to read more quickly and intuitively. Plus it helps him be a better and more patient steward to his many (way too many) pets. Two thumbs. Up. #snoutchallenge

// It's coming on Libra season, sweet moonbeams. Are you ready?? First, we have a New Moon in Aries on September 24th. This is our Harvest moon, kiddies, so set your early autumn intentions this week and then watch them as they come to fruition over the course of this moon cycle. 

// While you're at it, do read It's Decorative Gourd Season Motherf*ckers, as is tradition. 

// Maybe even better than that one though, is this one: Mr Autumn Man Walking Down Street With Cup Of Coffee, Wearing Sweater Over Plaid Collared Shirt. No joking, the last sentence will make you cackle.

// SPEAKING OF DECORATIVE GOURDS! It's that time. So here is theee pumpkin chocolate chip cookie recipe! (THEEEEEE Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe!) It's right here. RIGHT HERE. Since you were about to ask for it. ;)

*By the way. It tickles me to no end that I've already getting tagged in a handful of #THEEEPCCC posts on Instagram. Please do that some more!! (I don't know, acronym-hashtag? Is that too much?)* 

// Finally, speaking of pumpkin recipes! My Pumpkin Sage Pasta is still a yearly favorite at this house. Tastes like fall in New York City. 


Ok kids, there we go. Now be good and do your homework, wash your hands, and get your flu shot! Oh it is so flu season rn. 


  1. Love Friday posts!! Keep them coming ��

  2. Friday posts, beauty posts, nesty posts. I’m a sucker for a good series.

  3. I am curious about your journey of leaving the faith. I totally get that is something you might not want to share with the whole of the internet but I am struggling with this and it would be lovely to hear your take on it. Ps: you forging your own in this embroiderey business/cobbling jobs is finally what made me open my knitting store. Thank you for that. Truly.

  4. Have always loved both recipes! made the pasta recently and it was as wonderful as I can remember!

  5. Ive been waiting for this moment (or post) for so long lol. I do love Friday Posts, but I do miss the Beauty and Motherhood posts the most. Im a new mommy, and Im really into this blogging thing now which you've always inspired me to be a mommy blogger one day. ;)

  6. I always loved when you posted recipes!!
    Please revisit your HOMEMADE CHICKEN POT PIE recipe..It was the good on a chilly fall night.

  7. I'm so glad you're blogging again. I always appreciated your sincerity and I'm pretty sure you're the ONLY mommy blogger who can actually write well :)

    I would love if you did a catch-up series on your life since you stopped blogging! Leaving the Mormon faith, divorce, moving to another state, starting your own creative business. Your words are so inspiring to so many women.

  8. Pumpkin chocolate choc chip cookies? That sounds bloody amazing!! Checking out that recipe now.
