Five Fact Friday // One Lovely Life

1. Ten seconds. So have you watched the Netflix series Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt? It got me through food poisoning a few weeks ago, and made me laugh out loud when I felt like I wanted to die. Well, there’s this scene in the series where she’s telling someone her strategy for making it through anything…

1. Look-a-little-bit-likes. My children look very much like Michael. I read somewhere that, at birth, children resemble their fathers so that their fathers will bond to them (and–in the case of wild animals–not kill them).

I dropped Sophie off at dance class yesterday afternoon and picked up a fresh stack of library books.

Happy Weekend // One Lovely Life

Guys, it’s just really, really, reeeeally been one of those weeks. I had food poisoning/death last weekend. By Monday, I was starting to feel like a person again. Milo had a fever on Tuesday, and we’ve all just kind of had the blahs. I don’t have a dozen cute pictures to share this week, but…

1. The final quarter of graduate school has started! We’ve already checked off week one of the LAST QUARTER of MBA school! I say that as though I am getting this degree too, but MBA school has been a family effort. Michael has done so fabulously well. He’d never tell you this, but if his…
