I’ve always been a bit of a nerd about reading. I read anything I can get my hands on, whenever I have a minute. Newspapers in the morning (New York Times, USA Today, sometimes the Tennessean), art books, cooking magazines, novels, other blogs,…you get the picture. The weird part of this obsession is that I […]

Well, I don’t look as good as H and J, but here’s another clip of skiing down green cabin, a spectacular run on the crest of Snowmass…unbelievable views! P.S. I love my flip video camera…so easy! [youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=th_lIQhsjDY&hl=en]
Spring Break in our family means one thing…spring skiing! For many years we went to Beaver Creek, which we love, but last year we thought we’d do something different so we joined friends in Whistler. Whistler has a great village and two mountains with lots of long runs, but spring is NOT the time to […]
My daughter is entering high school next year. She’s been at the same school since kindergarten…9 years. It’s a wonderful school, and we have had an incredible experience here. It’s a private school in an urban setting, very diverse population, the academics are incredible, SAT scores high, college acceptance rates recognized nationally, etc. She decided […]
It’s all gone now, but it was pretty while it lasted. Rosie had such a blast playing in it she couldn’t get out of bed this morning!

More important than American Idol…Jevon Kearse is coming back to the Titans!!! “The FREAK” and Albert Haynesworth…watch out, here we come. Yayyyyyyy!
O.K. Tell me if I’m making a big deal out of nothing. We live in a really great, old neighborhood a few miles from downtown Nashville. The yards are big, and most of the houses are old ranch homes (they started out that way, at least). J and I have lived in this neighborhood since […]
I’ve been taking a watercolor class for about six months from Gail McDaniel, a wonderful teacher who magically brings out the best in you. I’m still very much a beginner, and the first time I took her class I almost ran out the door at the end, when she had everyone bring their work up […]
Today was such an incredible day here…sunny, warm, a little bit windy, but definitely smelled like spring. I decided to dust off my bike and go for a quick 25 miles. I live very close to Percy Warner Park, an incredible park with hundreds of acres and a great road that goes through…11.2 miles of […]
