chocolate pancakes

School started back up (in Florida) and pretty soon it will be “Fall”…it will still be 75 degrees, but we’ll all pretend it’s not. We’ll switch from ice tea/coffee to hot pumpkin chai whatevers, ditch the flip flops for boots (short and tall), then change out our chachkis (tiny gourd, anyone?) We tend to be…

Hey, guys, I’m here.

over the river and to the beach

For the past four years or so I’ve sent illustrated Christmas cards to friends, family and clients.  Last year I also made ecards, basically, adding snow and creating a gif then emailing or texting to the people that cheer me on throughout the year. Since we’ve moved to a new house I decided that I’d…
