We're currently staying in St. Paul Minnesota in a nearly 100-year old home. Right outside the window are morning glories. I've loved morning glories since I was a kid and always hoped to have some of my own. Now I do for a few weeks while house sitting. Diagonally right across the way is a … Continue reading »

Alone At Last!

Last Saturday was a special day. For a few hours Joel and I were alone together, without Fiona. It's the first time in many weeks. We love her dearly but she so needed time to play with a friend. And we so needed some time just the two of us to relax and visit.

Fiona's Little Tree at The Green House

When Fiona was almost 2 we moved from an apartment to a house. That's the house she lived in until we started living a nomadic lifestyle a few months ago when she was 6-1/2. So it's the only place she remembers. It's her childhood home, even though it was only rented. It's a pale green … Continue reading »
