Once upon a time (it was so long ago that it feels like a fairy tale), I was nominated by Leah @ Cary Grant Won’t Eat You for the Sunshine Blogger Award. Normally I don’t accept awards, but this format is super fun and I felt flattered. Said I’d post my answers in a week or two. That was…July? Maybe. Then I got busy with all the things. Most of you know what those things are, so I won’t go into detail here.
I have to go back to those things, but I just wanted to say, “Hey, thanks so much for the honor. Wish I could answer those cool questions. Thanks for making a girl feel all fancy and special.”
Hey all! Please accept my apologies for my (totally unintentional) protracted absence from ASPL. Life got in the way (working, vacation, moving, and computer problems…mostly the latter, really).
We’re in our new rental house. Yay! I’m typing these words on a brand new laptop. Double yay!
What does this mean for ASPL? Daily posting. Again. FINALLY!
Here is the promised Mary Cassatt painting. It’s a repeat, but a favorite. Enjoy.
See you tomorrow, you lovely, patient people.
Today marks exactly seven years of marriage to The Chef.
When we started dating, we lived in different cities. All of our early conversations were through the Internet (where we “met”) or phone.
As such, I find the postcard couple (above) completely adorable. And, after seven years of wedded bliss, still entirely relatable.
Hi all! My apologies for the lack of recent posts. We moved into a new apartment two weeks ago, and have been working overtime to settle into the new place. Everything should be back to normal on the blog very soon.
Until then, enjoy this photo of the late Irish writer Maeve Brennan.
Today’s my birthday, so I’ll be away from my computer doing birthday things. See you tomorrow!
It’s that day of the year again.
This was originally published here on 7 December 2012. In what is turning into an annual tradition, I am re-posting it today in honor of its subject, my buddy Frank.
If you’re wondering why my posting has been spotty and brief, it’s because my beloved laptop died a few weeks ago. A new one is on its way from Amazon. Things should be back to normal sometime next week.
Please enjoy this early work by Dora Carrington, by way of apology.
Although I’m not officially celebrating my birthday until next week, I am going to see a Picasso exhibit with my family today. I’ll be back tomorrow. Have a great Sunday!
