Remember me?

Hey Friends! Remember me? I'm that lady who writes the blog about raising a family in Detroit. You know? The one who has been too busy raising a family to stop and say a quick hello over on the blog. Well that's not all that's kept me away. This had a little something to do ...

A love letter to The Detroit Wallpaper Company

Dearest Detroit Wallpaper Company, Thank you for being you. You go above and beyond working with clients to create amazing custom wall coverings. Everyone you employ has been professional and a joy to work with. My home literally gets brighter and brighter every time I invite you in. You, Detroit Wallpaper Company, are the bees' knees.

Sea Life Michigan

There are some pretty sweet perks that come with maintaining a blog. Some don't fit in with the overall theme of With Love From Detroit and I politely decline. Other offers are just too good to pass up. One such example is Sea Life Michigan Aquarium. When they offered complimentary tickets, I jumped, because 1.) who doesn't love an ...

3.13 Happy Detroit Day City Lovers

Happy Detroit Day to my fellow city lovers. We all have our own Detroit story and our own reason for feeling deeply connected to the 313. Each of our stories are a unique and valuable part of this great city. What does my Detroit romance novel look like? Why do I love this city like I ...

My sweet baby boy is sick… always.

While my friends are out and about with their little ones, enjoying these beautifully sunny days, I am inside taking sick-selfies with my sweet baby Hudson. That's right. Sick-selfies. (Is this already a thing, or do I get to claim the rights to this? Seriously. I have a phone full of 'em.) Right around his first ...

Oh Baby: Big “secret” revealed.

Detroit Flyhouse — Circus School

Ryan and I joined our friends Matt and Frankie for an evening lesson at the Detroit Flyhouse. What is the Flyhouse? It's a circus school!!! How cool is that? They offer private lessons and group classes in aerial silks, aerial hoops and trapeze. As you can imagine, I flew the air with the greatest of ease... Ha. ...

Happy, Merry Everything

Christmas is just the coolest now that we live in a house with a four year old. And I have a sneaking suspicion that in only gets better from here. At least until about eight. At which point, I'm guessing, the doubting might start. Santa may have gone a little wild this year. Mrs. Claus finished shopping ...

This old house

(Warning: This post ends with a really bad pun.) Worked on the site for 5 hours today and yet have nothing substantial to show for it. WPEngine lets me work on a new site without having to take down the old one. So I am under construction without looking like a total mess. Speaking of construction, we ...

The Anniversary

Ryan asked me last night "So, how are you doing?" I was caught off guard and unsure of why he was asking this. "How am I doing with what?" I asked and before he could answer I knew. He was asking how I was doing with the Anniversary of the break-in just a day away. ...
