In Memoriam

4 Jan


Pomchi pistol Mary Poppins VanDyke Brown (age 10-ish) crossed over on January 3, 2017. She battled congestive heart failure for a year, and her tiny body was tired. It was a perfectly peaceful transition; she was in my arms.

From her hard-knock beginnings as an injured country stray to an anxious, long-term shelter resident to a lady of leisure and style with an editorial side job, Mary’s life ran the gamut. Loyal, loving, saucy, and cantankerous, Mary was straight fire, and we’re lucky she came our way. 

Adios, lil’ red sass. Immense love to you. 

Happy Palindrome Week!

Few things make us happier than palindromes. This week, they shine even brighter. We love you, palindromes; this week, and always!

Our fave palindrome, you ask? Lives drown in words evil.

Want more palindromes? Here ya’ go…

Happy Holidays!

Happy holidays from my family to yours.

The very best to you in 2014; may it be all that you hope.

Whoa! What’s Going On?

The blog needed a facelift, dahling. The ol’ dame was looking a little saggy. 

Please tell her she looks gorgeous, even though we all know she won’t look normal for about eight months or so. 

Thanks in advance.

I’m on Facebook. 

You may gasp now. 

Please like me

God, I feel so vulnerable. 

Don’t worry, you won’t have to look at gobs of baby pics—it’s my business page. But please like it anyway. 

I feel so vulnerable again

This “like me” stuff is challenging. 

They’re Heeeere!

The twins arrived at 37 weeks on August 7 via c-section. They’re perfect sweeties. We’re head-over-heels in love!

Séamus Daniel Brown arrived at 8:25 a.m. Stats: 6 lbs, 4.5 oz, 19″. Dark Irish, just like Dad.

Pearl Mae Brown arrived at 8:26 a.m. Stats: 5 lbs, 9 oz., 18.5″. This little blondie looks suspiciously like Mom.

Everything went well. The babes are so healthy that they didn’t have to spend a second in the NICU. Now, we’re home and happy… and tired… waaaay tired. Life is incredibly good. 

Welcome, Brownies. It’s going to be a wonderful ride. 

Little aliens.


Coming out of the delivery room. Welcome!

I would simply like to announce that I’m very upset that Charlie Sheen has been so mellow lately. Borrrrr-innnng
