on this Friday, the 24th of February…


I finished reading the Hunger Games trilogy this week.  I never intended to like them, but they were so sneaky and amazing and now I’m going through withdrawal in a bad way.  The husband is reading them now and I’m bursting because I can’t talk to him about them yet.  Every other moment, I’m all, what part are you on now, which I’m sure he loves, He does. He does.  I need a book club more than ever.

I had been losing badly to the  combination of winter, potty training, and a sleep hating baby.  I regret to inform you that one day I even wasted an hour of my life watching the Kardashians, something I plan on never repeating.  Immediately after, I scolded myself.   But, the day I finished reading Mockingjay, I was came alive with creative energy.

This week, everything feels better, I finished a dress from this book, whipped up a sleeve for Matt’s Kindle, and started on the Little Things to Sew play town project for the month.

I’ve been packing a few boxes every day, you know, for that move that is coming next month. And you might be wondering, where are you moving? We have no freaking clue and my I-love-the-unknown game face is growing tired. But, we signed up for this, with all our adventurous-change-craving antics, so really I’m not sorry, just brutally aware of the fact that I am hardly in control, which is beautiful, but painful too.

Sometimes, I want to change this declaration to, Oh darling, let’s just be predictable people who live in cute little house with a laundry room, art studio, and a perfect yard, in a neighborhood full of our best friends, and never wonder what will happen next because nothing will ever change again.

But even considering that creepy-truman-show-esque utopia  makes me shudder and and desire to pack a bag for each of us and jump in the car, destination unknown. 

I guess what I’m trying to say is that everything is just as it should be.

And it’s the weekend.


  1. I'm so glad we talked this week, Liv! Good luck with the packing and keep me posted on your adventures. :)

  2. I am looking forward to hearing more about this next adventure!


Here's the thing: I love your comments.
So thank you.

Have a lovely day.
Drink some coffee.
