We Live in New Hampshire Now

Sorry for the long hiatus. Moving cross-country is incredibly time consuming and difficult. But we’re all here – New Hampshire! By “all” I mean the four humans, two rabbits, and one cat. I also tried to bring 5 plants, but 2 didn’t survive the trip. One might be able to bounce back, but the other … Continue reading

Why New Hampshire? (And Why Not Pittsburgh?)

We’ve recently begun telling people – dentists, teachers, etc. – that we will be moving to New Hampshire this summer. The #1 question we get is: Why New Hampshire?

I am totally on board with 14 of the 15 points – all of them except number 8: 8. If we … Continue reading

Off to BlogHer

I’ll be leaving for BlogHer momentarily. We moved from Antioch to “Salem” this past weekend. Are we settled in? Not even close. But when BlogHer registration happened, we didn’t know when we’d be moving. I’m not nearly as prepared for BlogHer as I’d like to be, but I do hope to meet some of the … Continue reading

We Found a Place! And Other Updates

Good morning! It’s so easy to sound cheerful on a Monday morning when I write these posts in advance at night. As the headline indicated, we found a place! We were getting very discouraged, having not gotten either of two houses we really loved that were within walking distance of our friends’ house. Last weekend, … Continue reading


I’ve been absent from the blog for awhile now. Part of the absence is due to the usual springtime madness. (I’ll post pictures, I promise.) However, a large part of it is due to the fact that major changes are in the works. The Biggest News We’re moving! We are physically moving out of Antioch. In … Continue reading
