Emmett's first Convertible Ride

 Yesterday we had a few errands to run, so we decided to bring Emmett along for his first ride in the Rustang. He had on his car safety harness and we strapped him in with the seat belt.

 It took a minute for him to get used to the wind blowing all around him, but he seemed to really like it! And it was such a beautiful day we decided to take him for another treat...

 Some vanilla frozen yogurt soft serve from Kurver!

 Emmett's little head poking up watching us stand in line.

We think he liked it!

 Such a happy boy!

A little frozen yogurt on the nose never hurt anyone.

Loving life, and ready for the ride home.

I love my job

Every day I wake up and pinch myself to make sure that I'm not dreaming. I get to work for the best company on  the planet. Now thanks to All Over Albany, you can read all about where I work! Thank you Siobhan, for truly capturing the spirit of not only Etsy Hudson, but the company as a whole.

the one involving a tattoo...

Last week I received a message from someone I've never met who tattooed my Vermont illustration on the inside of their bicep. This may be the most awesome thing that's happened to me yet in 2012. It definitely made my day to say the least. Thank you, Caitlin!

Dear March,
More 50 degree + days and less 30 degree - days please. Thank you!

Dear Dresses,
Do you have any idea how hard it is for me to buy nice shoes to match you for our honeymoon? I could use a stylist.

Dear Hair Cut,
I haven't quite figured out how to make you look as good as you did straight from the salon, but we'll get there eventually I'm sure.

Dear Tea Shop Employee,
Thanks for telling me tea that comes in bags "isn't real tea." Presently, I can not afford to pay $18 for 2 oz of you designer loose "real" tea. So I'll be sticking with my green tea bags that I can get in a 40 pack for $4.00. Your snobbery has not swayed me.

leap day snow storm

Winter finally decided to show it's face at the very last minute this year, and it was beautiful.

Thursday, March 1, 2012


Dear March,
I am so glad you are here! I'm definitely ready for winter (as non-existent as it was this year) to die down.

Dear Mud,
You make walking Emmett a messy nightmare. I can't wait for you to go away so that we can go back to the dogpark without coming home completely covered.

Dear New Running Shoes,
Couch to 5K, you ready?
