From having spent a weekend in my favorite place on earth

What I miss most about the place I used to call home.

For your dad

A roundup of ideas for the father who probably isn’t 73 years old and would rather write a letter in his own blood than spend $45 on a pen.

Feeling like the final scene in Grease

I wouldn’t necessarily paint a room this color, but a few accents might work just as well as a few tablets of Prozac.

In which I may or may not be

Design inspiration from maybe or maybe not feeling a certain way from a certain thing.

Maximum effect

Inspiration if you’re looking to add some length to your wardrobe for fall. Men, the green one will bring out the color of your eyes.

The beginning of heavy textbooks

And now I have the soundtrack to Dora the Explorer stuck in my head.

Father’s Day, budget and splurge

Options for children of both the Silas Marners and Robert Crawleys of the world.

Hankering

Because I am the valedictorian of dropping phones.

The pattern on the inside of my brain

For those of us who are going to check just ONE MORE TIME to see if all the lights have been turned off.

Since the whole house is already littered with it

My girls have been trying to send me a message.
