Buying a new planner is one of my favorite parts of the new year! At the end of every year, I like to take the time to read through the past year’s planner, noting all those little details that I’d forgotten already: doctor appointments, movies, dinners with friends, parties, school events… all those little events… Continue reading New Year, New Planner
Man, am I behind, or what? January is almost over, it’s practically 2013 already, and I’m still hung up on Christmas. But bear with me, ok, because these pictures are cute! Ok, I promise, I’m done with Christmas posts! (I think…)

We’re only a few days into 2012, but I already feel like I’m lagging behind! I hope you don’t mind if I reflect for a bit… 2011 has been particularly full of ups and downs, highs and lows, and everything in between. From Sam’s graduation with his master’s degree, to me leaving my first job,… Continue reading Reading Stats for 2011
I’m easing my way into the new year a week late & feeling a bit lazy! So let’s get back to an old favorite–Meow Monday! Tali is settling in beautifully. She really blossomed in MS–she’s much more social, less skittish, and still ravenous for pets. She also still loves to sleep on top of clothes–these… Continue reading Meow Monday: Welcome to SF!
