on Grilled Red Potatoes {a Gooseberry Patch recipe!}

I love my wife's friends in the computer. You bring her joy, encourage her, give her space to write with a real and sometimes raw freedom, and become her friends outside the computer too. She also gets opportunities to partner with awesome organizations and companies,...

On Goals and Why I Need to Set Some

While I was pregnant, I worried about transitioning to two children. I work from home, and while it's a huge blessing (especially while nursing!) it's also difficult. Even without kids in the house, I constantly see dishes and projects and to-do's piling up, and it's...
