All grown up

I went to our local farmers’ market this morning with my mother (Meg), sister Mia, and Nanny (MaryJane). BTW, I love it that my mother lets me choose my own style. I heard my mother say to Nanny, “I really don’t need anything this morning, it just makes me happy to be here with everyone.”

    I have these moments where I feel like I might just cry I am so happy to enjoy all the delicious food and wares at our market. I am just so thankful to have all these talented folks in this little town sharing their skills with us! And…the little kids are pretty cute too! <3

  2. I’m really inspired together with your writing abilities as neatly as with the layout to your weblog. Is this a paid theme or did you customize it your self? Either way keep up the nice quality writing, it?s rare to see a great blog like this one today..

      Why, thank you! (And Meggie thanks you too but she isn’t here today.) Customizing WordPress like we did was no easy feat. First, Meg and I sketched out how we wanted it to look. We also dug around for clip art in old magazines and books to help us demonstrate to our graphic designer, Denali, what we had in mind. Then, she turned on her magic to create each layered layout/category. That took a couple of months on and off (we get interruptions to say the least). Next, Gabe fed what Denali came up with into WordPress. That took FOREVER, as in two months easy, because he had to learn from scratch. Putting a WordPress blog up isn’t so hard but one with so many categories and a certain look isn’t commonly done; it required lots of programming. Pages and pages of jibberish behind every comma, graphic, sentence. It’s like looking under the hood of a car, lots of wires going every which way. Anyway, we LOVE having a journal and sharing it with you is pure fun. We get to brainstorm ideas together and then step back to gander. It’s like scrapbooking on a daily basis. The neat thing about WordPress are the site stats. We’re getting about 6,000 views per week, 5,666 is the average to be exact. Our biggest day was 12,053 views! So far, we’ve posted 343 comments. That’s exciting for us. Our next big design project (that we’ve already embarked on) is to bring you along with us. Check out But wait, do you like the domain better for an umbrella website? In other words, we’re planning a BIG online party and you’re invited. We’ll even help you plan your outfit.
