Little girls

My nieces are in town! (So is my nephew, but he was running in circles so no picture at the moment.)



Quite the change from 8 years ago…

Tiny cousins!

Oh I mean also their parents. Miles adores Uncle Evan.


Well, his Apple watch, anyway.

2 years at Automattic!


Okay, I know I posted back in September that I’d been here for two years, but that was counting my trial. Today was the day I started as a full-time Happiness Engineer in 2013. It’s been an amazing time, with so many fantastic memories! Here are a few…

Yeah, that’s a lot of memories for two years. Can’t wait to make so many more! (And yes, we’re hiring.)

The last soccer game


Soccer is over! It was fine – not a huge time commitment, and the boys loved it. Well, unless they were losing. But whatever. I’m just glad it’s over because the mosquitoes were getting seriously dangerous and huge at practice. Stupid global warming.

Anyhoo, they did great! Well, Oliver wasn’t feeling well, so he didn’t play too much. But Miles and Linus both scored! More than once! So that was fun.

They got medals at the end.

Team pic!


and Grandee and Larry came to watch!


Until Spring, maybe? Only if they can still play in the recreational league. We’ll see.

Ten years + real life


Ten years ago today, George and I got married. Crazy. I wrote this post for the New Orleans Moms Blog, a letter to our younger selves. Check it out!


But life goes on. We already really celebrated in June, when we went to England, and we’re hoping to have our anniversary dinner on the cruise in a couple of weeks. May as well, we’ll have plenty of babysitters around!

Miles got sick on Friday, then Oliver on Tuesday, and today Linus woke up with a fever. This is the life I couldn’t have predicted ten years ago.

Happy anniversary, Georgie!
