I’m Kasey: mom to two wonderful young boys and two crazy dogs, wife, daughter, granddaughter, friend, teacher. I love to create–with words, with fabric, with yarn. I live beside a lake in “the middle of nowhere” in Northern Maine, and I’m working for the day when we will live on our farm, just a few miles down the road. I worry a lot. I love ice cream. Keeping chickens makes me happy. It frightens me how few people can (and do) really read. I like to cook on the grill. From May until November, I usually have dirt on my fingers that won’t come off. I make pie crust from scratch.  There are never enough hours to spend in the garden. Words make me happy. I know how to drive a tractor. I detest black flies. I am beginning to learn how little I really know. Mornings must begin with coffee. And NPR. I will arrange my entire day around a visit to a thrift shop. I’ve recently rediscovered running. I can’t imagine how I will raise wonderful children in such selfish times, but I try every day.

I created this blog to capture some of the “Happy Corners” in my life, to notice and record the beautiful moments that sometimes get lost in the everyday. Welcome! Take a look around, and please, come back soon.

  1. I hope you clean the dirt off your fingers before you make the pie crusts. Just kidding. This is a beautiful blog. I love it!

  2. “This Moment” led me to your blog, and then to your “about” page. Although we are different in many ways–I’m surely older, and am an academic living in a city MA….nevertheless:
    Absolutely mornings must start with coffee and NPR.
    Though I don’t run, I walk.
    I could probably spend all day in a thrift shop, and definitely in a bookstore (I’m a historian–I spend whole days in libraries, where my hands get dirty from old books).
    I worry a lot.
    I make cakes from scratch.
    One of the worst things I ever heard (years ago) is that 60% of US households have no books in them.
    And I fantasize about quitting my (tenured!) job and moving to mid-coast Maine (b/c I can’t afford small-town coastal MA where I grew up).

    Anyway, just thought I’d let you know that somehow, your description made you feel like something of a kindred spirit, despite our surface differences.

  3. I’ve always loved Maine! Love the state, love the nature, LOVE the people! I’m looking forward to get to know you through your blog.
