All grown up

Where do the years go? Can she possibly be old enough to dress up and go to prom? She has become a beautiful woman. And I am one lucky mother.


studio 3z makes me smile

by Edie Wadsworth on April 27, 2010


Remember when we went to Cincy a few weeks ago? Well, one of our great pleasures was meeting Brett and Jess of studio 3z. I found her blog months ago and began to confess my smittenness of their work. They are the most beautiful, unique family I think I’ve ever laid eyes on. And they […]



I’ve been keeping things from you and I apologize profusely. But I knew you’d be jealous. I have a dumpster. There, I said it. I rented one for the move and I’ve never been happier with a rented item.  I’m giddy about it.   And to celebrate my sheer joy, my friends Kelly and Denise […]

The House That Found Us……

by Edie Wadsworth on March 16, 2010


Just to be clear and to set the record straight, we weren’t looking for a house.   We love our house.  And our neighborhood.    And our pool.   And our trees.  We’ve lived here since we were married and our two littlest have lived their whole lives here.   I’ve made every single inch […]


Bread Baking and other Weekend Adventures

by Edie Wadsworth on February 26, 2010


This weekend, I plan to: 1. Embark on a new bread baking adventure with my newest book  Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day. The luscious loaf that graces the screen above needs a little less salt—-otherwise, it is nearly perfection.  More to come on that next week. 2. Ponder the wonderful ladies I met […]

Hunkered Down

by Edie Wadsworth on January 31, 2010


I love any reason to hunker down.   If for nothing else than just to  relish in saying the words ‘hunker down’. And this is what I see just outside my breakfast room this morning. It’s not the 6-12 inches of snow they predicted, but 2 inches of slush is enough reason for hunkerin’ in […]


Christmas Coveting

by Edie Wadsworth on January 14, 2010


The Backstory {in the following true story, the names have been changed and faces hidden to protect the innocent} It happened the first day they went outside to play after Christmas.    They came in with cold chapped faces and forlorn little hearts. “Mom (in a pitiful, woe-is-me little voice),  guess what such-and-such got for […]

by Edie Wadsworth on January 7, 2010


How do you get your children to: 1. Sing for you on New Year’s Day 2. Make ’2010′ with their bodies in the cold windy chill…. 3. Join in a collaborative effort to do the dishes 4. And with only a small amount of tomfoolery? Answer: You feed them large amounts of pasta and bread […]

Things I learned while Christmas Crafting

by Edie Wadsworth on December 22, 2009

craft collage

1. There’s hardly anything more endearing than pictures of little ones crafting. The actual real life crafting is a little more stressful than the photos reveal.2. When 75% of your crafts involve straight pins, there will very likely be screams of pain…..and 8,765 straight pins on your floor.3. There’s hardly anything more endearing than pictures […]
