A warm warm welcome to the new kids
to the blog…I hope you decide to stay
even after the giveaway is history.
There is time left to enter!!!
giveaways are a serious hoot for the host
until the winner is announced and the number
of followers suddenly diminishes.
You already know we’re fond of
stream of consciousness
on planet Michele so I know you won’t be surprised
this blogger’s wingin’ it today with photos to give
you a nibble of life offline…

Which is not glamorous but full.
Not care-free but with light

The very best part of it has nothing to do with me.
It’s that my life is jam packed with hope and l.o.v.e.
Serious in your face love.

i like having this saint around.
Speaking of the L-word,
I’m a wife to a very handsome man
who shares a first name with Shakespeare.
I’m a parent of sons who will report
I am neither saintly nor cool.
Saintly moms do not persistently request
(in front of their offspring’s friends no less)
to be kissed twice like the French and
proceed to threaten spankings
Also, cool moms don’t make a living
writing humor essays about their anxiety
and the trials of parenting adolescents.

Oh goodness, I’m spillin’ it all.
a few old things around and a few new feels right.
There will be nothing left to blog about,
ummmmmmm, you don’t look that concerned.
starting ballet again…haven’t danced since 1985.
There will always be more.

So thank you for reading me and opening
your hearts to this blog.
And a huge apology for the lamest post title
in the history of blogdom…even if you figured out
I was riffing on a past McDonald’s campaign, it’s
still quite mental, yes?
Peace to you right where you are.
