Reflections on Preschool from a Mom of 4

Our youngest child will be heading to Kindergarten this fall. As you know if you have been reading my writing for any length of time, I believe in hefty doses of nature, play, and reading in the early years. I'm generally a huge fan of boredom, tech-free space, the outdoors, nurturing relationships, and creative play […]

Favorite Toddler Clothing & Shoe Brands

With four children in our house (ages 23 months to almost 12), we've been through lots of clothing and shoes over the past 12 years.

What We Wore: Holiday Photos (family of six)

If I could only have one Christmas present, it would be a photo of my family. Ask me again next year and I'll say the same thing. Like words, photos are one of the few ways to pause time for just a moment and capture exactly who we are as we are (and how we […]

Interlock versus Mesh Polos from Lands' End

You've heard me sing the praises of Lands' End polos in past articles. Of the brands we've tried for school uniforms, they are the best of the best - soft, well-fitting, and able to withstand lots of washes all throughout the year. If you've browsed the Lands' End website, you have probably noticed that the […]

What I've Been Wearing: End-of-Summer Style

Well-known Blogger Tsh Oxenreider recently summed up my fashion philosophy - "...dress simply, dress repeatedly, and dress in what you like best." I prefer a few quality pieces to a closet full of trends that may or may not match up with my lifestyle, schedule, or body type. Here's what I've been wearing (over and […]

What I Wore: Fun(ky) Night Out

I probably have too much black in my closet. But I contest that it's a lovely color for clothing - subtle, dramatic, and classic all at the same time. That's why I recently opted to wear this understated Starburst Shutter Dress by London Times. Beautifully tailored, the dress is has a figure-flattering cut that would work well […]
