It’s IMPOSSIBLE to land on May 1 and not think of the song from Camelot – the Lusty Month of May (as evidenced by two blog posts in my history referencing the song!). So go ahead, take a minute and have Alexa play it for you or find it on YouTube… Ok. So I’ll forever… Continue reading It’s May!

I am grateful for the arts – music, movies, theatre… Chris and I saw Madea at Saint Mary’s University in Winona – a translation from… Continue reading A Month of Gratitude
I’m going to be a Grandma! I’ve known for quite a while now. I picked out my name (Nana ‘Nette), bought a 4-door car for car-seat ease, and helped plan the gender reveal get-together with the families. But I haven’t purchased an outfit or a piece of equipment yet – so far all I’ve bought is… Continue reading Baby books!
It’s been a while since I did an “update” blog, so thought I’d ramble a little. I listen to a new podcast by Gretchen Reubin about Happiness and she said that a tradition that she and her family have is weekly email updates to each other. I think it’s a great idea and wonder if it’s… Continue reading What’s up?
