I'd pause to see
I made breakfast in barely discernible dawn that would have been darkness a week ago, a waning gibbous moon to the west. Camellia petal snow covers our deck, a haze of pink out the dining room windows. Alexi and I started dating at this time of year. He’d r...
I made breakfast in barely discernible dawn that would have been darkness a week ago, a waning gibbous moon to the west. Camellia petal snow covers our deck, a haze of pink out the dining room windows. Alexi and I started dating at this time of year. He'd recently moved to Seattle from Minnesota ...

We discovered Cal’s coat on the hood of our car this morning, water-logged after a night outside in a fog as heavy and enveloping as the ocean itself. The boys played lacrosse in the street until well past dark; I’m sure he didn’t see it on his way inside. ...

Alexi's childhood home in Nova Scotia It’s just us again. My family returned home; Alexi’s hasn’t yet arrived to ring in 2015 with us. On Christmas Eve, our pastor’s address began, “This is a time when a soul feels its worth.” I’ve thought about that idea m...
Alexi's childhood home in Nova Scotia It's just us again. My family returned home; Alexi's hasn't yet arrived to ring in 2015 with us. On Christmas Eve, our pastor's address began, “This is a time when a soul feels its worth.” I've thought about that idea more than once over the past few days.

The new family hung luminous red globes from a tree in their yard! In the last of the light I exchanged greetings with ...

I just got a new phone. I don’t care about technology for its own sake and I’m not curious about upgrades and new features, but my battery stopped holding its charge. I read all the time on my phone; I always seem to be waiting for something to start or end...

Our lives have taken on the relative asceticism of January. We're keeping our heads down; working hard and long and making do. Walnuts in a bowl with a cracker have taken the place of the holidays' never-ending supply of confections purchased and gifted and made. The light increases by inches ...

For years, we were housebound for large portions of every day due to naps and early bedtimes. Now it's the grandparents who nap. I can't remember when bedtimes became more fluid, but the boys could certainly outlast us in the evening if we were to let them. We spent the weekend in Canada.
