I believe…

… you cannot sell a house through sheer force of will. (Believe me, I’ve tried.)

… there are enough good ways to raise children in the world that it’s impossible to claim that there is only one ‘right’ way.

… when fall comes it should stay. It should not go away and be replaced by 90 degree oppressive heat and swarms of stink bugs, thankyouverymuch.

… experimenting with new foods and new recipes brings me a remarkable sense of joy.

… L.L. Bean and Eddie Bauer have some of the cutest clothes.
