Yawn. I’m sleepy. I’ve been going non-stop for a while now and I’m pretty tired. Saturday was Jayme and I’s Black Birch winter pop-up store, Frost Pop. We had a GREAT turn out, so we will definitely be doing this show next year. Even sold out on our new Palm Spring vegan soap. And James … Read more
Folks that face isn’t getting any younger. So Jayme and I created an Organic Facial Serum. We worked on this formulation for months, but we think we have a really great serum to share with you. It is packed full of powerful organic ingredients in every bottle such as…. Organic Rosehip Seed Oil Our Rosehip Seed … Read more
It is cyber Monday which means my business, Black Birch, is running a sale! We do sales like twice a year, so this is kind of a big deal and worthy of me finally making a post to my blog. Launching some new product tomorrow, which will also be worthy of a post. This Saturday … Read more
Hubs is busy working on my dream. Operation Master Bedroom has begun as of 4 hours ago. Phase 1 has been promised to be completed by Saturday AM. Edit: I should mention he is sick as a dog. Because he is.
James always said he would build me a laundry room palace. It had become our joke over the past 3 years that I always did laundry in a palace since at the time our laundry room was down in our unfinished basement. Well, it took us a bit longer than we thought with countless design … Read more

Notice the beautiful bride via yesterday’s post? Late September we did a photoshoot for AnnKat Designs new collection. Melanie Acker did the outrageously cool photos.
Right when I got back from Honduras I had a pretty important mission. A close couple to both James and I were getting married on Friday at the courthouse and were having a small reception with family immediately following and than a much larger reception on Saturday. For weeks the bride and I had been … Read more
You know where I went to last weekish? Honduras! I was there for 24 hours. That was pretty much enough time for me. I stayed at the Intercontinental, which felt really safe and was very clean and most importantly, pretty. It also included bath robes. They were semi soft. It worked. I got to go … Read more
I was sitting in the bathroom stall today, thanking my past self for everything it had done to get me to where I am. All those uncomfortable moments I made myself sign up for. Those tasks that made me visibly shake or sick to my stomach all prepared me to have the success in my … Read more
Went to the beach to see my folks over labor day weekend. We left early early on Wednesday morning. James flew us down, which was excellent for my inability to pack light these days. Besides Hunter refusing to wear his headset, it was very easy uneventful flight down. Once there, got to see my parents … Read more
We got another car this weekend. This makes #12 since we’ve been together the past 4 years. Our friends find this hilarious and it has become a game of who can name them all. For the record it is, as follows. WRX Corolla Hummer Lariat F150 350Z RX 330 Ranger IS 250 Tacoma Lariat F150 … Read more
+++Hunter walked for the first time unassisted yesterday afternoon! WHOOP!!+++ He has been taking my shoes lately for rides in his walker. I also just found a pair in a trash can upstairs. Also Hunter’s doing. Although, there was a second that I thought maybe James did it. Back almost a month ago, when … Read more
I’m writing this post Saturday night with a glass of this in my hand. It is okay. I opened it Friday and was like “ohmygod, the label saved me from pouring you out” and now that it has had some time to breath it taste a lot better. Or maybe I’m feeling desperate for a … Read more
