I Want it Now

Always loved these family bikes when I've seen them in the Netherlands. Could I pull it off on Capitol Hill?

My Favorite Things of 2009

Stefan: The new man in my life, he arrived last January 23rd and there hasn't been a day that we haven't smiled or laughed because of him. Happy birthday, my little man!

Abby: She continues to amaze me, thrill me, perplex me and make me shake my head in wonder that she is my little girl.

NYC: A girls weekend in the Big Apple and the Thanksgiving Day parade. I love NYC!

All Things Swedish: Abby has embraced her heritage, from celebrating Santa Lucia, to buying pink clogs to eating more Swedish pancakes. Malvinia and Gustave would be proud.

Vermont Again: I can still picture us living in a farm house in the Vermont countryside. I know my husband is reading this, so when will you say yes and we pack up?

Travel: I got back on my horse and road tentatively at the end of this year to Dubai and Egypt. But Morocco, Australia and more await in 2010.

Appreciation: As the year begins, tragedy of monumental proportion struck in Haiti. It really made me sit back again and think about how truly lucky we are in the developed world.

Wild and Wonderful

Babies in gliders...
Slipping and sliding....
Cruising along on our cross country skiis...

Wild and wonderful West Virginia. Yes, I said West Virginia. Here are a few photos from our long MLK weekend spent mostly at White Grass Skiing Area....a funky little find in the hills just a few hours drive from D.C. Definitely not for the Aspen set. Just the way we like it!
