I started blogging in the midst of a deep depression (personal and emotional, as opposed to national and economic). Infertility had taken over my life and a blog was the only place where my bitterness was understood and honoured. Having thumbed my nose at infertility twice now, once through IUI and once through IVF, I felt the need to start a new blog and fill it with all the things that fill my brain and keep me awake at night: crafting, gardening, parenting, religion, politics, and a certain Dutch cargo bike I’ve been coveting.

This is my new beginning, cybernetically speaking. I hope you come along for the ride.

7 Comments to “Why?”

  1. Yay! This is about the whitest blog I have ever seen. Clean enough to perform surgery in… or anything else you want to do with it. Mazel tov on this new beginning!

  2. I happened upon your original blog four nights ago after googling something I am too embarrassed to admit (nothing dirty or crazy, just insanely stupid). I had a miscarriage two weeks ago and finding your blog has been a godsend. My husband has asked me every night (when I’m up at midnight…stilll reading) what the heck I’m doing. My reply: “Therapy.” I don’t know you, will most likely never meet you, and have never read a blog before now, but I cannot thank you enough. Reading your blog was like reading something written by myself…only five years earlier than when I experienced it. Thank you…that’s all I can say.

    BTW- I finished all five years of your posts in four days. I couldn’t stop; you’re a brilliant writer and should really think about publishing your journey.

  3. I am blown away by crafty folks, probably because I have nary a crafty bone in my body. Impressed. Glad to have discovered the blog!

  4. I just found your blog, and can’t stop reading. Your DIY tutorials, the toddler bed especially, is so incredibly helpful, I can’t wait to get started. And your posts regarding your Montessori style of parenting strikes such a chord with me, this is exactly how I’ve wanted to raise my child, but didn’t know there was a name for it.

  5. In a google search for Jewish Montessori your blog came up. My wife and I started an organization called the Jewish Montessori society so that all the Jewish Montessorians would have a place and hub to share and talk. would love to know more about where you are and your school.

  6. Love your style of writing and your humor! Just like mine! I am not crafty at all and have no vision so thank goodness for you. I need space for my mop, broom and other evil cleaning gear. The between the stud cabinet is perfect for my needs.
