Dear Favorite Old Lady

August 11, 2011


  I’ve never met you, but I know a lot about you. We probably would have been friends. You liked shoes. You had hundreds of pairs of shoes. You loved holiday decorations. You must have had rooms and rooms full of them, for every holiday imaginable. You were  fancy. Like glittery blouses and gold lame’ […]

Tweelief Society Sloppy Joes

July 25, 2011


My mom had a bunch of babies when I was growing up. Like, a whole bunch. Jon, Sue, Joe, Wendy, and James. That was five times of the ladies from church supplying our family with meals casseroles and jello concoctions while mom was recovering.  When a  friend was about to have her baby a couple of […]

Can we exchange numbers?

July 7, 2011


I’ve been less active on the internet lately. It is totally on purpose. I just felt like I wanted to simplify and just sort of quiet down a little bit. I joke a lot about swapping phone numbers with new friends like it is a big deal. Like we don’t follow each other on Twitter […]

Lamb Chop

February 24, 2011

Is profundity a word? If not, we can go with ramblery.

January 28, 2011


I’m not even going to bother trying to explain the past few months.  It would take years. I’m in the process of moving house.  Not far, which I think makes it harder.  We are moving a little bit southeast of where we’ve lived for the past five years… Closer to Big Cottonwood Canyon. Closer to […]
