Big hugs from tiny arms

Mama and I were thrilled to have a hug-filled visit from some of our family today. In the years since we’d seen these beautiful girls, they’ve gotten so much taller and even sweeter! We loved spending the afternoon with them and their wonderful mom, Laura! Paisley was ecstatic to have more people to love! Today’s #OneGoodThing was loads of…

Decorating just in time

The Jewish holiday of Chanukah began tonight, and so Mama and I decorated our living room this afternoon. The last-minute effort wasn’t exactly procrastination; the holiday just sort of sneaked up on us this year. (The date is based on a lunar calendar, so it changes each year.)

We went out for lunch to Jackson’s Bar and Oven in Railroad Square, and shared the most wonderful burrata topped with pistachios and honey. The food was outstanding, and the company was even better! Mama and I adore…

Today I helped Mama create a custom cartoon for her as well. I installed the Bitmoji keyboard on each of our phones and we had a…

Skating on a Saturday

Today turned out to be one of those days with a few options for my #OneGoodThing project — a very nice start to the weekend. First up, some very kind neighbors loaned us a tool we needed today, saving us from needing to rent it! Thank you neighbors! Next, I managed to put up a…

More Family is Always A Good Thing

  Today’s #OneGoodThing is our newest adopted family of the heart. And it all started because I wanted a biscuit. One Friday morning last summer, the Nosy Parker family schlepped to the DMV, which is pretty much guaranteed to be a frustrating process. When it was over, we thought we’d treat ourselves to a little brunch.…
