Here are some snapshots of life!

How It Started

How It’s Going

Frosty is still holding on! Everyday after school Birch checks on him. We had some 55 degree days last week and he’s not yet a puddle. 

My Digital Clutter Course Is Launching THURSDAY!

Join me for a free workshop Thursday, February 11, 2021, 12pm EST

Here’s what we’ll cover:

  • The 3 BIG mistakes that are keeping you stressed and stuck with snowballing digital clutter that never seems to end.
  • How to stop wasting TIME and ENERGY with organizing methods that are not sustainable long term.
  • An intro to the simple system I have created that teaches you exactly what you need to do each week to stay organized forever.

Register if you can only pop in for a few minutes because I’ll send you the replay if you can’t watch the whole thing!

I have been working on this course NONSTOP for six weeks. I can’t wait to share it with you!

Birch The Shark

Karen made this shark hat for Mazen, and it’s perfect for Birch! It’s even more hilarious when you see him running and the fin is slicing through the air :mrgreen:

Or Piggy?

I just discovered that these masks glow in the dark! The pig and mustache are so silly at night!

Meals Lately

We added a big tub of baby spinach to our grocery list and all of a sudden all of our smoothies are green! So far the kids have not noticed…

We love these flax waffles from Whole Foods. And all the grapefruit this time of year!

I’ve bee making semi-hard-boiled eggs to have for breakfast and lunch. I have a new technique that I learned from a Blue Apron recipe.

Soft Boiled Eggs

  • Boil water
  • Add eggs and set timer for 7 minutes
  • Remove eggs with slotted spoon and plop into ice bath!

Look how bright these are!

Here they are for lunch in a big salad. I love that gooey center.


I treated myself to some Plenty Cville lunches like this farro and kale salad that I doused in the most delicious maple+mustard dressing!!

And this frittata slice with leftover roasted veggies and more of that dressing!

The dressing made an encore when we used the last of it on some baked Catch Sitka Salmon. This was King salmon which is THE best variety out there! We were a little low on food so we had frozen peas on the side! Both the fish + peas were from the freezer stash. Sometimes you gotta do it!

Salmon leftovers for lunch – plus peas, spinach, truffle almonds, more dressing, and my chocolate container for dessert :mrgreen:

Quick lunch of cauliflower soup + leftover pizza.

Music by Mazen

Mazen’s guitar lessons are coming along – he’s getting good! He serenaded Birch and me with Twinkle Twinkle Little Star after nap one day.

Although he much prefers rock music to match his hair!

My Tree Dashers by Allbirds came! They live up to the hype – like a sporty version of the wool runners I have lived in with extra support and bounce!

That’s all for today folks! I’ve been a little light on my posting schedule since I started on this course creation journey, and I’m hoping there is a break in the clouds after this week and I can devote more time to consistent posts again!
