I love coffee. Sometimes people try to switch my coffee to decaf when I’m not looking. I can always tell the difference. I also like Pringles, but only the reduced fat kind because they crunch better when you bite into them and they don’t leave grease on your fingers. I’m…

When I was looking to buy my wedding invitations (back in April), I found a lot of designers on Etsy. After narrowing it down to a couple different designs/companies, I contacted both for their pricing list. One was pretty significantly more expensive–almost $2 per invitation more. Which I think all…

When talking to people about photography, I hear one phrase over and over again: Kids and dogs are the hardest subjects to photograph.
I, personally, don’t have this problem with my clients…kids and dogs are among my favorite things to photograph. Maybe it’s because I like to have any excuse…

Last week, Sean and I had our morning coffee on the balcony and watched as the Enterprise shuttle was pulled down the Hudson on a tug boat. It’s on its way to the Intrepid and I can’t wait to see it up close at the museum!

Ode To Merry of Mom and More

Merry was winner number two of my blog xmas style challenge, so here is her poem.
Read it/sing it to the tune of “Hey Mickey”

An Ode to Merry
Mom and More

(Chorus)
Oh Merry, your blog’s so fine, your blog’s so fine, it blows my mind
Hey Merry (clap-clap clap-clap!)
Hey Merry (clap-clap clap-clap!)

Oh Merry, your blog’s so fine, your blog’s so fine, it blows my mind
Hey Merry (clap-clap clap-clap!)
Hey Merry (clap-clap clap-clap!)

(Verse 1)
Hey Merry—
You seem to write all night and that’s a little long
Every time I check you’ve posted yet another song
Why can’t I do that too, oh you put me to such shame, Merry!

Cause when you say you will, you always follow through
Your writing gives me chills, Merry, yes indeed it do
In comparison to you, my writing feels so lame, Merry!

(Refrain)
Oh Merry, Mom and More, I check your blog each day
Your writing grabs my eye and I can never click away
Oh Merry, stories of your life, your thoughts, your kids…
It’s blogs like yours, Merry…
Oh what you write, Merry,
Write, Merry
Never disappoints, Merry!

(Verse 2)
Hey Merry—
Now when you take me to your world, I always seem to know
That every time you write you show a little more soul
Your query on BookEnds proves how well your words flow, Merry!

So c’mon and keep posting, anyway you can
Anything you want to write, I’ll take it like a man
Just don’t disappear and leave me all alone, Merry!

(Refrain)
Oh Merry, Mom and More, I check your blog each day
Your writing grabs my eye and I can never click away
Oh Merry, stories of your life, your thoughts, your kids…
It’s blogs like yours, Merry…
Oh what you write, Merry,
Write, Merry
Never disappoints, Merry!

    Awe… I love it - I also posted it on my blog with a link over here and shall be waving pom poms at you in my head for days :-)

    Oh man, you need to teach me how to link so that I can put one on my site!!!!!!!
    I warned you how dumb I am when it comes to this stuff! Technologically UNsavvy!

  3. Merry Jelinek Says:

    It’s not hard, I’ll send you instructions by email, though, because explaining in this field won’t work - my explanation will turn into a link… and I’ll just confuse you trying to type it out in words.

    This was very cool!
