A short note to parents of teenagers.

A short note to parents of teenagers:

I was asked what advice I'd give parents of teenagers. I’m not a parent, but I’ll share the two things I most appreciated about my parents.  Both are related to transparency: on your kids' part, and on your part.

Think hard. Work hard. Play hard.

An Ode to Warmth

::sigh:: I think our Golden Days are coming to a close. How sweet was our Indian Summer? With the reports on Hurricane Sandy and the "early winter" forecasts (hyperbolic in nature, but yikes...), I've been taking in the last touches of warmth while I can. Grateful for those sun spots...

A letter to my 16 year old self. Part 1.

Hey Guys! We always appreciate your supportive emails, and especially enjoy the blogging suggestions.  Someone recently asked me what advice I would give to my high school self.

Anchors, Futures, & Everything in Between.

Solomon: (Rising.) You see, it’s also, this particular furniture—the average person he’ll take one look, it’ll make him very nervous.
VICTOR: Why’ll it make him nervous?

Because he knows it’s never gonna break.

What's in a name?

This is the man responsible for MRDJ.
I get it. This half of RMK has a difficult name.

My new friend, Peta Niehaus (who does a fun doodle everyday on her facebook) had this to say:

"Kristen. Your last name is completely impractical. I've tried saying it a three whole times, got flustered, and then left my computer weeping."
I really don't like making people cry. I also noticed on an old blog of David and mine that half the hits came from "How to say Mrdjanov", so I'll solve the name conundrum for you.

My former co-worker explained it best. Think of a highway. Merge on. off. (it's actually 'ove', but if you can say Merge-on-off I'll be happy enough with that).

See? Easy. You're a pro now.

A Slice of Life

So, we've been absent. And now we feel guilty about it. Below is a little slice of our lives over the last few weeks.
Fall. Getting the chef on. Triplets. Nana. Fall. Marathon. Clothing swap.

Life's been pretty fun.

A (brief) hiatus. (That's almost over).

Don't think our absence means you've been forgotten. We've been baking, sewing, hosting, and loving galore.  We'll update and get back on track soon. PROMISE.
