My inspiration for this record of my days:

“The biggest mistake I made [as a parent] is the one that most of us make. . . . I did not live in the moment enough. This is particularly clear now that the moment is gone, captured only in photographs. There is one picture of [my three children] sitting in the grass on a quilt in the shadow of the swing set on a summer day, ages six, four, and one. And I wish I could remember what we ate, and what we talked about, and how they sounded, and how they looked when they slept that night. I wish I had not been in such a hurry to get on to the next thing: dinner, bath, book, bed. I wish I had treasured the doing a little more and the getting it done a little less” -Anna Quindlen

The new me

I finally took the time to figure out how to make a header.  Turns out it’s really easy!  I don’t especially love the new look, but I was ready for a change.  I’ll keep experimenting until I find the right one.


  1. You are so tech savvy! I wish I had a header like yours! Hint, hint.

  2. Hi Christi, just found your lovely blog. I do love your header, I do not have on at all, cannot find patience to figure out how to ;)
    Have a happy day. xx

  3. I can't figure out how to get a header even as great as your last one! Let me know the trick!
