When I Was a Pie

And Other Slices of Family Life

Most stories end with Happily Ever After. This one starts with it.

These are slices of life in the form of short stories, musings, comics, and poetry—showing bright moments, soul pondering, frustrations and side-aching laughter. Join our family as we play compliment tag, create piano calls, and cut a crawl hole in the bathroom door to rescue a toddler.

It is life, lived in the moment and observed.

Welcome to the eclectic joy we call our family.
