Nine months old in lederhosen. Because, lederhosen. Thanks Oma and Opa!

3/1/19

SiGuy and Huddy came to visit! Can’t believe Wesley & SIlas are almost a year old! :)

Out and about

Accidentally matching at the zoo, standing in line for coffee, thrilling ourselves with horses on sticks that go round and round.

Turned 30

Couldn’t be luckier -S

Birthday 2019

Adulthood, round 2. 

There are so many things

you could be and do -

so many you have done and been.

I can see you a famous writer,

or a well-known picture-taker,

or another path - but always fighter.

Courageous, honest, smile-maker.

Wherever you take me, I will go.

Wherever you work, I will assist.

You are brilliant and brave, you know.

(And impossible to resist).

Be it Spain or outer space,

a new home, new state, new child,

whether we replace inventions

or reinvent our place,

I will be with you 

and it will be worthwhile 

while wild.

-E

More snow in February

Evan's back :)

Wesley noticed.

After the earth

After the earth 

has shed its skin, 

I will roam its raw rebirth.


Step over steppe, 

touch over tundra,

trace channels, 

walk along waters.


I will find no death,

no war, 

no silent killers of souls - 

the secrets 

every culture, every country holds.

Cabin Fever

Day two of being stuck inside on our own… we made the best of it.

On a business trip

When her fire is burnt out

and in this cold taxi

and with this cold distance

I have no heat left to give her,

be Warmth

please.

A Snow Day

Today we woke up to our first storm of 2019. Snow came for the first time and your dad left on a trip for the first time since you were born — giving us a lot to think about. The day was a little adventurous but mostly it was a lot less warm. 

I took you outside and set you down and you got real quiet like the snow. You smiled a little but only at first. Then we watched everything be still. Then you looked so serious about it, I had to tell you it wouldn’t stay that way. 

Snow melts, and he’ll be back. 

That time it started snowing during Kyle's Birthday Party!
