right now:

this is very quickly becoming my favorite time of the day. 
my time. 

am loving:
 ryan adamswithout the cardinals. 
it's like finding a long lost friend. 
mmmm. missed that voice.
and it's full of A-plus-L-equals-true-love dancing songs.

am loving:
cath's new space
can't wait for her to fill it with new words. 
and loved the one-in-the-morn phone calls until we got it right. 

am loving:
my husband back to building houses. and not apartments. 
we can breathe again.
and he comes home happy from a day spent doing work that he really truly loves. 
that is so lucky.

am loving:
the peaceful light.
the lamp on at eight o'clock in the evening.
the curtains drawn.
my favorite part of these few cozy months.

am loving:
feeding my family. good food.
food from my own stovetop. 
from my own warm oven.
and discovering that i can. 

we call these russian donuts 'round here.
only andrey actually says something like donuts in russian.
he says they're just like some sweet little pastries that his mom used to make.
...and he'd hide them in his pockets.
i've been stuffing my own boys' bellies up with them. 
hoping that they'll remember them too, someday.


  1. oh, those donuts...they were so good! i think i need to get myself a cute little donut pan and start baking ;)

    so glad you are feeling so happy and content. of course i have to say, i don't think i've ever felt anything different from you. i love your sweet, happy look at life.

    thank you for your sweet words!

  2. those are just about the sweetest donuts i've ever seen.

    mostly, congratulations to you & your love. breathing is by far the best "feeling" & i'm so happy for you that you are able to be at peace right now.

    happy donut eating to you & your house of boys!

    p.s. thanks for the music suggestion. listening & completely loving.

    i love that your best creative flow is in the wee hours and that we don't have rules about going to bed or when to call. i love my new "space" too. thanks.

  5. I LOVE Ryan Adams and I'm going to see him this Friday! So happy to hear you like him, too.
