Babaloo goes Fancy-loo

Last Saturday was our eleventh anniversary! Because, somehow, over the years, we have become old. We had a lovely weekend. Dinner with friends on Saturday, a baby playdate Sunday, and then we took babaloo out for a fancy meal at Launderette. We hadn’t done a nice meal out with baby since good friends of ours came into…

Life is for the living

Well. I’m feeling a need for this outlet again! And it’s because life has bloomed and exploded and grown in ways that have been, at times, hard to synthesize. Or maybe it’s because I got an email that my domain here would expire unless I paid $26, and I don’t want to feel like that…

Balance.

No, the title is not a metaphor. This is actually about balance. I was returning the rental car this morning (I had one yesterday so I could run errands all over town without an enormous car2go bill) and ended up behind this. Impressive, right? It’s not every day that you see a truck piled quite…
