Planting Sequoias

In which I blog about a life (hopefully) well lived.


Chicago 2012 (in which there is much weeping and gnashing of teeth)

Guess who’s in Chicago right now?

It’s not at all obvious that Ken is cropped out of this picture, is it? He’s off in the woods somewhere hunting for deer to shoot

And I have no idea how this picture got this big, so just scroll quickly, okay? Pretend you can’t see everysingleoneof my freckles.

….not the point.

Update: I figured out how to make it smaller, so stop squinting and trying to see those aforementioned freckles.

Guess who ELSE is in chicago today?


Yes. John and Sherry from the Young House Love blog.

And due to a series of unfortunate events, we will not be seeing each other to embrace/gesture wildly with our hands/become BFFs.

It hurts my heart that we will be so close, and yet so far.

So for the record, if anyone wants to get me their book for Christmas, I’d appreciate it. And if you want to emulate me and put it on your own Christmas list as well, that’d be fine too. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, you know.

Well shucks. Back to scouring those stores on Michigan Ave. and seeing what else Chicago has to offer, I guess.

I think I’ve crossed into the realm of creepy fandom. There is no hope for me, so don’t even attempt a heroic rescue. Just let me wallow.
