Dark chocolate, cranberry green tea, and Damien Rice have been keeping me company today as I finally finished an exciting project that many of you have been asking about.

You know those fun photo slideshows we all love so much? Well, they are now available on DVD to take home and watch on your own TV. This was no simple task, and at a few points this week I considered throwing my CD printer or computer (and at one point both) off my fire escape into the slushy snowy mess. But, with Brad’s techy help and after reading at 72 online forums about printing photos on DVDs, we are finally there.

Email me if you are interested in purchasing one for yourself, your parents, your grandparents, your siblings, or your neighbors (yes I know, everyone doesn’t enjoy this as much as we do, right?). They are $15 each or $35 for three.

    Anonymous - Milla,

    The slideshow your created for us set to amazing music is absolutely perfect!! It brings tears to my eyes everytime I watch. Put me down for three. I can’t wait to share the pictures with both sides of our family.

a dead, snowy plant outside my door this morning

Today I woke up with a full twelve hours of catch-up time. My list was ready, and I woke up going-going-going.

It’s been cold and white outside but warm inside. And, I’ve had two little heartbeats at my feet (or at times in my lap) all day to keep me company.

About 11:30, after finishing numbers 1-3 on the list, I ran out to grab lunch, and as I quickly swung into a parallel spot on Craig St., put on gloves, stepped out onto the snowy sidewalk, and felt the 17 degree air on my face, I could only think one thing:

I love this city. I am very thankful for this white, white day.

And then with crab rangoon in hand, I quickly drove back through the snow to our cozy little house. And here I’ll remain until numbers 4 and 5 on the list have been completed.


Okay, I’m sure you’ve heard about them before if you’ve spent more than 30 minutes with me. This is Tuco (on the left) and Turk (with his favorite toy on the right). The sun came out today, and we couldn’t resist taking a little in!

    Milla - Yes indeed. It has teeny Christmas trees on it and he LOVES it. And Turk has a matching one.

    (p.s. they are from Old Navy)ReplyCancel

Meet Phin and Silas! Silas slept much of the morning while mom, Phin, and I read books and played with dinosaurs and built a train track. What fun! I certainly learned that ittle boys play very differently than little girls; my sister and I used to have care bears and my little ponies instead of dinosaurs and pirate ships! Thanks guys for letting me hang out with you on such a cold, snowy morning. I loved it.





Today I hung out with Ali and Abby to document 11 weeks in this world. Abby was precious – no crying, no whining, no tiring of the clicking! We did have to wait for a smile, but it came with a little help from mommy! Thanks girls – I really had fun.
