poor neglected blog

I didn’t publish a single post in 2014! I’m sorry, little blog, but being a working mom is exhausting (and also not the topic of this blog, so enough about that). But in the last few months I’ve taken more photos of things that aren’t my family, and even experimented in the kitchen a bit. So let’s prepare for a small blogging comeback in 2015!

2011 annual report

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 5,200 times in 2011. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 4 trips to carry that many people.

Wow, today is my one-year blogiversary! I started this blog on a whim one day because I was bored, and now here I am a year later writing my 113th post! I’m glad I started the blog – I think having this blog has definitely inspired me to try out new recipes, which I sometimes share here, and to take more photos. It’s also been nice to correspond with those of you who are reading (and especially commenting on) my posts!

Let’s celebrate with the cutest cupcakes I’ve ever made (thanks entirely to the Koala’s March cookie toppings):

Now here are some blog stats for the blog’s first year, because I am a nerd who enjoys that sort of thing:

So if I want more people to read my blog, I guess I should be posting more about tennis fashion??

post a week

WordPress has organized a challenge to either post once a day or once a week for 2011, and I’m getting on board for posting once a week. I’ll probably post more frequently than that, but WordPress’ “The Daily Post” is providing topic ideas and writing advice which will be useful when I can’t come up with anything interesting to write about on my own. Let’s see how this goes!


I haven’t had much time for blogging lately, since moving into our awesome new house has kept us very busy. But I’m feeling some guilt for not posting much in December, so I thought I’d share something from the house. Check out the hideous wallpaper in our master bedroom!

Can you believe that there are FOUR different patterns going on here?! Ugh. Once the most pressing house issues are settled, we’ll be peeling this stuff off and painting the room some nice calming color.

what’s in a name?

Yes, I did sort of name my blog after a Paul McCartney song.

hello world!

Wow, I finally created a blog! Hopefully I will be sharing my thoughts here on a regular basis, and hopefully someone will read them, too!
