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. ...

Partnering with Olympia Entertainment

With Love From Detroit has opened up so many unexpected collaborations and opportunities. Some fit my vision for the site, like working with Detroit Wallpaper Company and some I have to turn down as they want me to attend events or do write ups on things that have nothing to do with the city proper. Not ...

My four year old boy

Last night we celebrated Jack's fourth birthday. How do you make that little man's four year old dreams come true? A surprise trip to the Lego store after a delicious, cheese only, pizza dinner. I asked Jack if he wanted to be blind folded as we made our way to his top secret, birthday surprise. He ...

Detroit Half Marathon

People! I ran a half marathon! My goal was to run the entire time, no walking allowed. Oh, and to finish. Ha. I did it. I had hoped to run an 11 min mile and I ended at an average pace of 10:59 per mile. I'll take it! I entered the race with Ryan and my dad. ...

My Bucket list at 22…

Cleaning my office has it's perks. Perk 1: I get to hang the art that's been collecting dust, laying on the floor for months. Perk 2: I can finally see the butcher block surface of my desk which only inspires me to sit there and work. and the very best and most awesome perk of them all, Perk 3: ...

Diet and Exercise…

Ryan and I are gluttonous. Well, we were gluttonous. We liked  to eat a "sweet treat" after almost every meal and enjoyed wine or beer just about every night after the kids went to sleep. We ate until we were stuffed and ordered takeout far too often. "Treat yo' self" (the food edition) had become our ...

Birds and the Bees at Three

Jack has been asking me to rock him to sleep at night. He knows it is my kryptonite. He can ask for water. "NO." He can ask for just one more book. "NO. But if he asks me to rock him like a little biddy baby in my arms, I cannot resist. I rock him ...
