I am Listening

I think I forget to remind you. I am listening to you. Of course this should be felt as opposed to telling you but sometimes don’t we need to hear it too? I like the reassurance that someone listened; not just heard the words but really listened to me. I had the HONOR to attend … Continued

What is Your Why?

Either my kids are getting crazier or the whole world is getting crazier. Maybe both. In either case I am losing my grip. The boundaries are changing. The requests are bigger and harder. Sometimes I feel so ill-equipped, stunned that an alternative perception can be such a violent interruption to the consummate safety of a … Continued

Where To?

What’s your “must see” prior to the winter? I always have a little bucket list of things that I need to do as fall arrives. Leaf peeping in Western Mass never gets old. Hitting up my favorite local pumpkin stand. Going to the fairs. And finding new hiking trails are consistent every year. Of course, … Continued

Be Ahead of it

I already miss it. Summer. And feel excited at the same time. That’s what fall does for me. Of course I will miss the beach trips, BBQ’s, and the longer days but I love the crisp air and homey feeling that fall brings with it; the time of year when mother nature gives us a … Continued

There is Still Time

How are we already through two whole months of Summer? We have been busy at F.H. Perry Home! We have conquered several projects and what seems like hundreds of smaller to-do’s. Being busy is great- Thank you all! BUT wow does it make the day/week/month fly right by. And it does feel like we will … Continued

The Space Between

A summer Saturday night — the shadows so still and lasting. Voices bouncing across a stretch of jade lawn before sneaking in through the screen door. A moment, a whisper really, when it seems life simply cannot get any better. When by innocently remarking on it is almost to lose it. But the utter sweetness … Continued

Awkward Entanglement

There is this very nice man in the neighborhood behind my house. I don’t know his name. I sort of know which house is his. I know he has a dog. We see each other from time to time in the morning when we are both half awake and perfectly happy with a quick nod … Continued

Spring Maintenance

Spring Refresh Who is ready for the sunshine, green grass, and warm weather? To me that all sounds wonderful- but we know what comes with that: spring cleaning, snow run-off flooding your yard and sidewalks, windows covered in winter film, an AC system that needs its Spring service, and OH so much more. No problem-we … Continued

Running To and Running From

I’ve been a parent for thirteen years. After a series of other character-building endeavors including age appropriate collegiate shenanigans, two years of waitress-funded independence in the Pacific Northwest, a shabby-chic Boston North End condo purchase, and half a MBA I found the man of my dreams, signed the pledge and launched my progenitor career. Growth … Continued
