June is for celebrating marriage, fathers & PRIDE
We originally posted June is for Celebrating in 2017 – sure feels a life time ago. Not long after the 2015 Supreme Court marriage equality ruling, David and I began to wonder if a business like ours — built on a commitment to not just marriage equality, but basic equal rights and … Read More »
Tired of the SEO-optimized click-bait titles and bored by breathless Black Friday pre-sale announcements?
Add in 24/7 race-to-the-bottom political news and it’s tempting to just give-in to the sky-is-falling-so-might-as-well-get-used-to-it voice in my head and trudge silently toward December.

Sometimes it’s the small stuff.
This past week our son brought home yet another school form for us to complete with the same information we’ve provided too many times before.
