Welcome To The Dollhouse

Checking in on Valentine’s Day

Hello friends, Life has been extremely busy but I did want to jump in and wish you a happy Valentine’s Day!


Once Upon A Blog

Once upon a time I had a blog. I blogged to share, I blogged to vent, I blogged to process all that was my crazy life. It wasn’t always pretty or profound, but it was a great outlet for me. Yet somehow things began to change for me and blogging. It became more about crafting […]


Here’s What I Hope

to do this weekend. Yes, I know. This is a pitiful excuse for a blog post. Not one of those lazy listmaking blogging attempts! Really, Liana? For shame. But I’m afraid that every time I think about crafting a well thought-out essay, life has gotten in the way. And before I knew it, it’s been […]


Distracting You

I don’t even know how to begin. It’s been so freaking long since my last post that it is nothing but embarrassing. Sure I thought of about 20 or so topics in my head, but between the holiday prep, designing our holiday cards, screwing up our holiday photo shoot, and then taking forever to get […]


Open Adoption Roundtable #3: My Wishlist

No, I haven’t dropped off the face of the earth…really. It only seems that way. And no, the prospect of Boundary Crossers didn’t run me off. I’ve just been drowning…work, life, you name it.

Don’t Go Crossing My Boundaries

I belong to an Open Adoption Blogger webring. Some of you might find this curious since, of late, I rarely seem to blog about adoption.

I’ve Been Tagged

Goodness it has been so long since I’ve been tagged for a meme, I don’t even remember how it goes! But thanks to my friend, Deathstar, for her tag, you’re it. Let me see if I can jog my little memory engrams. 1. What were you doing 10 years ago? Working like a natural dog […]


Pretty in Pink

I have to thank my dear blogger friend Deathstar for awarding me a Pink Rose Award. I am thrilled and honored that she sees my no nonsense take on life after adoption and on life in general as giving her hope. I have to tell you that with 5 days until my 45th birthday, no […]


Welcome to the New Dollhouse!

I know you all thought I had jumped off the planet after my last post about Butt Paste, but no. I’m still here and so is The Dollhouse. But thanks to the wonderful WordPress theme designing skills of Sunny from HeadSetOptions, The Dollhouse has a fresh new look. I couldn’t be happier. The funny thing […]
