How to host a house concert
Today I want to talk about house concerts -- again. I've had a few people tell me they would love to host, but they don't think their house is large enough. I want to encourage you to re-think that! I live in a classic Highlands' house (if you know Louisvil...

Surprise Snow Day & Life with an Au Pair
STICKY FINGERS - baking bread on a snow day. We had a completely unexpected (and unwelcome) snow day yesterday in Louisville. Our Brazilian au pair disapproved of the weather, as did I, but it did yield some pretty photos in my Instagram feed and some delic...

Top 5 Google translations from the past week #aupair
My dad took wee Graham to see School of Rock! This has nothing to do with the blog, but they are so cute. GOOD MORNING! I'm having coffee and alone time -- alone time, in which I answer old emails and pour through the 9494 unread messages in one of my inbox...

Our family is growing!
