You're one of my favorite blogs to check in on and I'm delighted that this is the place you choose to tell your story. It took me a while to settle into what I wanted my blog to be as well and now I use it the same as you do, to tell the varied stories that are my life. We aren't just one thing or another so it's fitting that our stories reflect who we are. Oh, and I have a small stack sitting on the craft table that will be my next sewing project. ~grins~


wishing you much love, peace and light in this new year! i am happy to see pieces of your world in this beautiful space! xo


Ahhhh, dear Larissa -- I'm glad you've decided to continue your blog and to focus on all that is so important in your life. I missed you when you weren't around. And you know, I still would love to see what you're making. You are a source of great inspiration and I always learn so much from you. I'll look forward to stopping by often in 2011.

What wonderful moments you and your children share. They inspire me to be more present with my own children.

That picture of what you discovered...the prickly...what a perfect header photo. (If I can say that as a friend.) xoxo

SO happy you've decided to continue sharing all parts of YOU!! We appreciate them all. I'll be here for sure. hugs to you.


Happy New Year! I think that the idea of starting out the new year with carrot cake is certainly one I could embrace... :D


Your blog is beautiful, and one that I keep coming back to often. Don't pressure yourself to write anything other than what is front and center for you at that moment and what you want to share with your audience. We will laugh with you, cry with you, celebrate with you and admire your beautiful work. Stay true to you. We're here waiting for the next post. :)


Beautiful post! I love all your traditions.

Happy 2011 to you and your sweet family!!!

Do you have a favorite carrot cake recipe you use each year?


I love your happy home. Thanks for sharing glimpses of it. I wish I could say "our woods." That makes me wistful!
