Goodbye, and I Love You

end-of-summer-1301

I think we’ve all known this is coming for a while (you know…it’s been a month since I last posted). I’ve had this blog going for three years, ever since I decided to take pictures of the apple pie I was making and share it with the world (though “the world”, at the time, was my mother). …

Mendon Ponds Park

I have been really enjoying life in Rochester lately (especially today, with a high of 68 degrees!).  In western and upstate New York, the weather is just beautiful in the late summer and (I know it’s too early to be thinking this, but–) early fall. Fritz and I have negotiated our way through some recommended …

Gumbo

A recipe!  For real! Except that I forgot to take a picture of the finished soup actually plated (bowled?) in a bowl, even though I ate this for dinner on three separate occasions. So you get to see it in the pot. Styling tip #1 for soup: put it in a bowl.  A cool bowl, with a …

Family

IMG_2737

Some family things going on here, friends. 1.  It is my dad’s birthday. Happy birthday, Dad!  How you managed to survive this long with such a gaggle of girls (okay, women now) around you, I will never know.  But here you are! You tried to instill a sense of athleticism in all of us from …

Roasted Garlicky Green Beans

I love my new job–I work with babies and kids in their homes and schools, working on rolling and running and walking and playing and jumping and overall just having a fun time.  I do a lot of driving around Rochester, which is nice because I’m getting to know the city really fast.  But let me …

A New Camera!

IMG_2363

All of the stars aligned, and I am now the proud owner of a new (to me!) camera! Someone living near my parents was selling their old Canon 5D Mark II, and since Fritz has been borrowing my camera for his dental photography (yep, that’s a real thing), we saved our tax refund from last …

Blog (and Life) Updates

IMG_2900

So torn if I should start out with blog announcements or pictures of my beautiful niece in town from the West Coast and my little sister graduating high school. Guess I’ll mix it all in. Liana: Jordi: And blogging: I’m coming back. Back to a domain near you, folks! (I like to throw in a …

What We’ve Been Up to Lately

255681_837745240124_1801072771_n

I received a really sweet and honest email from a reader a few minutes ago, and it inspired me to check in and say “hi” in a few minutes of downtime.  I have a few minutes until Fritz gets back from a very important errand (it involves ice cream) (nope, not pregnant!), and since the …

Just Some Projects

207192_837748333924_1384275567_n

For those of you who follow me on Instagram or Facebook, you’ve probably seen all these pictures (or most of them).  But I thought I’d share some of my latest projects, since we’ve been too busy packing/meeting with friends/organizing/cleaning to cook or even consider turning on my oven. I found this project from Pinterest on …

Carrot Cake Cupcakes

IMG_1546

Hey!  It’s been so long since I’ve dropped by that my own blog doesn’t even recognize me–I had to sign in and remind my laptop to keep me logged in.  I haven’t even been around to delete the weird fact-filled spam comments I’ve got a million of lately. There are so many things racing around …
