a very merry unbirthday…

mr clifford and i were having ourselves a mini emotional moment last night. today, this little guy is 1.5, which isn’t really a birthday, and yet i can’t help but think about how strange it is…. that is has been 1.5. some days he spends all day reminding me how old he is, throwing away […] Read more…

a reason to love nikon

i thought about writing of my experience last nightthat involved a mini-breakdown just following the demise of dinner… lets just say, the boiling, nearly completed pot of what was going to be my first successful meal in months,ate the floor. and ate it bad. though it ruined my night for a while,and my swearing/yelling mom-tantrum […] Read more…
