I try to avoid the “lately…in pictures” type of post because capturing a story is so important to me. There’s always a story, and one of the most joyous parts about writing this blog is getting to tell it.

But sometimes there isn’t a story. This week, we didn’t visit a Halloween Festival Megaplex Spectacular. We didn’t travel to an exotic foreign location with tall ships and Canadian beer. We stayed home, we nested, we ate some old-fashioned home-cooked food. I guess that’s a pretty good story after all.


Chocolate croissants in the park….

Blink and you’ll miss this speck of a park in Chelsea. Look for it and you might see little ones at play.

There’s a certain pleasure to be found in being idle. To be free of plans, To Do lists, homework, conference calls, blog posts, afterschool, meal prep, dishes, dishes, and more dishes. 

Maybe this story is about seizing the non-story. Walks with a friend…


Hikes down to that little patch of sandy beach where the kids feel most at home…

Hats in October. Big, puffy, polar bear hats.

Let’s end our non-story with that. That hints at a story beyond what I’ve promised to share this week. So that’s it for now, hope everyone’s had a lovely {un}eventful week. Get some rest, pet the dog, hang with the kids, cook good food, do those dishes, and see you back here next week, same time, same place.
