High Flying

We are right here in the thick of it, of half packed boxes and lack of sleep and to-do lists that make me suck in my breath, but then there's that little guy up there shining with practically unbearable amounts of joy; he makes me feel like we can do anything.

Catch you from our new zip code in a matter of days.

Hello November

Browned Butter Pecan Teacakes with Chocolate Bits

Well where the hell did October go anyway? I am starting to get "where-are-you" emails from people I don't even know so I thought I'd better resurface and confirm that we are still kicking over here.

Last month was so rad. I finished the first book to speak of since we had a baby and boy howdy was it a good one. Our little family picked up and flew our way to Boston for a really special wedding. This was Osh's fourth wedding since he was born and he rocked the party and then slept through the party as it is a baby's right to do. While there we gunned it up to Portland and he met some super important people. The leaves changed. The garden greens grew into waving clusters of cabbages and broccoli and kale. We decided to move. B's baking ventures went from a dabble to something of a real business. The first frost came so we picked all the flowers and enjoyed bright bouquets for days. Halloween came and despite my disbelief that my own mother would send me a premade costume (she was a hardcore "we make our costumes" kind of mum) once we dressed the little guy up he was shockingly hilarious.

Yah, did you catch that in there? We're moving. It's so crazy and unexpected that I can't even really motivate myself to explain it. All you need to know is that now I'll get to see my boys for lunch. And snacks. And hikes. And any other old time during the day that I like. Stay tuned.
