Love is …

  • A proper night’s sleep, after several rotten ones
  • Another day to recuperate, feeling better
  • Daddy at home
  • Fresh banana bread
  • Convenience robots that work, creating some leisure hours and making life more than just prepare-a-meal–clean-up–prepare-next-meal, repeat
  • A bluster of boys (a blush, a blurt, a bluff, a boast, a brawl?) on our street for my kids to play with
  • An exciting first basketball game of the season, and a much longed-for win
  • Time to take down Christmas (so much Christmas to take down!)
  • Ian making burgers and fries, because I asked for them
  • “Avatar the Last Airbender,” a perennial favorite
  • Dreaming of this year’s running events; I can do this, right?
  • A plan for an early morning run with a friend, who keeps me accountable
  • (Only) one more day of the kids’ winter break

    Thanks for visiting! I’m Sara, editor and writer, wife to Ian, and mother of two precious boys. I am living each day to the fullest and with as much grace, creativity, and patience as I can muster. This is where I write about living, loving, and engaging fully in family life and the world around me. I let my hair down here. I learn new skills here. I strive to be a better human being here. And I tell the truth.

    Our children attend Waldorf school and we are enriching our home and family life with plenty of Waldorf-inspired festivals, crafts, and stories.
