So, I know it’s still technically February, but can we talk about spring?
I’m dying for it.
I’ve also got a long list of things I’d like to do over the next few months and quite frankly, can’t wait to get started.
1. Make olive oil and maple granola.
2. Clean out my garden, which is kind of a disaster.
3. Go on walks outside.
4. Read a few books. (I have several picked out. Hopefully, there will be some good ones to tell you about.)
5. Get someone’s nursery ready.
6. Find the perfect spring nail polish.
7. Watch The Hunger Games.
8. Take a trip with friends.
9. Buy some sandals.
10. Make an olive oil cake.
11. Eat pea puree and salmon.
12. Go on a strawberry bender. I think it’s time to find the perfect shortcake recipe.
13. Check out Mark Bittman’s Food Matters.
14. Make plans for a new vegetable garden.
15. Hit up The Gap for some miniature DVF wrap dresses.
16. Add some pansies to my front porch.

How are you holding up? Here, in our corner of the quarantine, we have a lot to be thankful for – our health, office spaces at home, a big backyard and an endless supply of art materials for Ellie. And yet, this is hard for all of us, because it is big and scary and…
For years, something has been shifting in middle-class America. Pre-competitive and competitive sports start at age 5. Subtraction happens in kindergarten. Reading chapter books is expected at first grade. Multiplication begins in second. And, these are just the early elementary school years. All of the advancements might sound like a good thing. We’re moving forward,…
I'm Lane. I’m the wife to an engineer, the mama to Ellie and a small business owner. I love trashy T.V., good books, a little pampering and great meals.
