Mix Tape October

At the Moment: I was so excited to run my first marathon relay with a great team of friends. Our team name was Reservoir Jogs, and we tackled the Detroit Marathon together. I got to run the first leg, running over the Ambassador Bridge from Detroit into Canada and it was a beautiful run, watching [...]

Mix Tape September

At the Moment: September is my favorite month of festivals – and I am happy to say I didn’t sell at a single one! I really enjoyed taking the whole family to Dally in the Alley, DIY Street Fair and Dlectricity + Dan and I had a date night at Eastern Market After Dark. They [...]

Mix Tape August

At the Moment: It’s the last full month of summer, and we’ve been packing ALL the summer things in – trips to the pool, trips to the water park, watching baseball, hangouts with pals at the park, road trips to other zoos, and hiking in the woods. Oh, and one more thing to pack in [...]

Mix Tape July

At the Moment: July was a fun month – we celebrating Dan’s Birthday & my birthday, went to a couple concerts, and the kids and I had a few “field trips” as they call them. It was the best timing ever – Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, which happens to be a favorite of mine (especially [...]

Mix Tape March

At the Moment: March really came in like a lion as they say – we had a bad storm here and lost our power for 4 days. It was rough, but we had some awesome friends & family help us through it in different ways and when we finally got power back we sure appreciated [...]

Mix Tape February

At the Moment: February was awesome. First, I got to hang out with some of my favorite crafters and friends at the Midwest Craft Con! There were some awesome classes and fun crafty shenanigans, and I also spoke on the “Craft Show Confidential” panel. Then the kids had mid-winter break and we had a few [...]

Mix Tape January 2017

At the Moment: I’ve spent the last 4 weeks re-training myself to stop working in the evenings and on weekends, and to practice self-care every day most days. We’ve been cooking real food, I’m running nearly every day, spending more time with the fam & friends and *gasp* just trying to do LESS. It’s been [...]
