“Oh hi. Hey there. Remember me?,’ she asks equal parts sheepish and impish.
It’s been a minute or almost four months, but who’s counting, outside the tiny human.
Yep, you read that right? My dear, beloved offspring is counting. She even did some kind of Math the other day that completely blew me away. Granted she still can’t wipe her own butt effectively, and now of course she’s going to kill me for mentioning this when she’s thirteen and all angsty.
Speaking of the tiny human, she started preschool last month. It’s banana shorts.
She’s officially going five half days a week, which might be why I finally found the time and inclination to write.
As for me, I’ve been busy. There’s too much to recount, so I’ll give you the quick and dirty highlight reel with a (lightweight) promise to blog more in the future.
City Hippie, my now one year old granola business, is kicking ass and taking names. I’m still working with local businesses who carry my granolas and I even did an outdoor market last Spring. I’ll be hosting another table this Fall at the Cuyahoga County Fair Grounds, and I managed to get myself on television, which was an awesome experience.
When I’m not bagging or making granola, I’ve been chasing the tiny dictator around, eating all the produce, reading all the books (I highly recommend The Great Alone by Hannah), and watching all the Housewives. Slutty, mindless TV is my favorite; hashtag no shame in my game.
(There is a tomato on this grilled cheese sandwich, so it counts as eating all the produce.)
We spent the majority of our summer frolicking, on family vacations, catching up with old friends and eating our body weight in ice cream; as it should be.
I would love to share more with you all, but I need to go nab the tiny human from preschool before I get charged for a late pick up. Gulp; this being on time thing is going to be challenging.
Until next time, blows kiss…
What have you been up to? Fill me in; tell me everything.

O. M. F! (forgive my curse) I was just thinking about you and the tiny one and what chinnanagins you might have been up to the other day, and was going to email!
Preschool is a whole new sanity saver! And most kiddos
l o v e it. I had two clingers who cried every day… not typical.
Congratulations on the Citi Hippie success! I just made a match batch of your peanut butter recipe, it seems to disappear almost before it’s cooled.
I’m soooo glad to see your comment here. I’ve been wondering about you and was gearing up to send you an email. I’ve been missing you and hope you’re doing alright.
The tiny human is adjusting to preschool. She still misses being with her people, but I think she actually enjoys it now too. Fingers crossed the trend continues.
I love you still make the granola. It never lasts long here either.
I came here a couple weeks ago to catch up on your life, and noticed it had been a while!! Got this notification in my reader and jumped for joy. I am so stoked about your granola thriving!! You deserve it and then some. Love you!
Love you too and for the record, I follow all your adventures, whether it be on IG stories or on your blog. I don’t always comment these days because I’m trying to hide my cell phone usage from the 3 year old (derp). I say, go get you a big burly man, preferable German or a wonderful vibrator. Blows kiss.
It is so nice to see you back here! It sounds as if you had a wonderful summer! Good luck with the on-time pick up, it is a challenge some days.
After 3 years of not being on time, it’s really hard to switch over to the real world again. Gulp.
Thanks for visiting. It feels nice to be back.
Yay!! It’s great to see you over here again! That’s the cutest first day of school picture This was the summer of all the ice cream over here too. I kept expecting to get tired of it but nope. Too many flavors for that. We didn’t have any big trip over the summer but lots of day trips (and one camping trip) in the van – Squish has been in heaven. She loves the van which we now call Anne because that’s how she pronounced it as a baby.
Suchot recently posted…Am I a bad mom? I accidentally locked my child in the car
The van looks like so much fun. I can see why Squish is a fan.
It feels good to be back, although I’m thrilled you’re on IG so we can keep up that way now too. 🙂
Your smiling face, whether it be on TV or beside your gorgeous little school-goer, always makes my day. This was a lovely catch up and I’m just so thrilled to hear of your business growing and that your summer seemed to be full of all the things that make life good. Much much love!!
Much love right back atacha. I see you’re having a fabulous time abroad and even meeting up with Jen. I’m thrilled for you. Go get ’em, Cora.
I loved The Great Alone! Welcome back 🙂
It was such a great book. Good to see you too. 🙂
