I recently came across this Rocky Mountain News article about a restaurant called “V.G. Burgers” on Kleo’s blog and I said, “Hey! We just ate there on Friday!” V.G. Burgers is a new fast food restaurant in Boulder, CO, with an entirely vegetarian and almost entirely organic menu. In fact, 90% or more of the food is vegan. I have a few friends (both vegan and not) who’ve eaten there lately and liked it, so when we found ourselves in Boulder Friday night, I said we should give it a try. Ava got the classic burger, Jody got the sunflower burger and I tried theRead More →

Anyone know why I would suddenly stop receiving email notification when I get a comment? I have the box checked to email me whenever someone leaves a comment, but a couple days ago I stopped getting emails even though I’ve received new comments. Ideas? I’ve tried looking it up on the WordPress site, but didn’t get anywhere. Thanks! By the way, with the weather being somewhat nice lately (though snow is expected tomorrow – bah!), we’ve gone to the park the past three days. I haven’t been spending much time on the computer, so no new posts of any relevance. We’re going to go playRead More →

Hands-free nursing while walking. Sounds like some sort of acrobatic act you might expect to see at the circus, no? They (the folks at Moby Wrap, that is) said it could be done, but I had yet to attempt it myself until yesterday. With the weather finally warming up a bit and the snow melting, the kids and I went out for a walk yesterday. I honestly don’t pay much attention to the clock when it comes to nursing Julian – I practice “on-demand feeding.” So when Ava said she wanted to go for a walk, I thought it *might* be getting close to theRead More →

Because I didn’t feel like I had enough going on, I started a photography blog. OK, so I’m just kidding about the not having enough going on part, but I did want to start a blog where I can post *just* photos – nothing else – so I’m not crowding this blog with my day-to-day pics. I only have a couple on there from yesterday and plan to update it as I take more pictures, but I hope to add some of my old favorites as well. Don’t worry, I’ll still post pics here now and then too. :)

Feb. 20 marks the ninth anniversary of me and Jody’s first meeting in person. Of course we knew each other via the Internet for about 1 1/2 years beforehand, but it wasn’t until Feb. 20, 1998, that we met face-to-face. I lived in MI. He lived in OK. So, while we wanted to get together, we couldn’t just meet up at the local Starbucks for a cup of coffee. (Wait, did Starbucks even exist back then?) A lot has happened in those nine years. First I moved to OK and we later got engaged. In 2000 we moved to CO and bought our first home.Read More →
