Hi! My name is Stacy Hyatt and I’m glad you’re here!

I live on an island in the Puget Sound, surrounded by woods and trails and slugs and puddles, with my husband, daughter, son, three infuriating cats, and two elf-eared dogs.

I write mostly for myself, when the limits of an Instagram caption feels too constraining, and also to capture something of who I was in this world, so if one day I am hit by a truck or downed by cancer, my children will have a way to look back and think “Oh, she was only human after all.”

Use of Images

Images used on this blog are a mix of my own photos and photography / illustrations / product images / etc. from others on the Internet, usually by way of Flickr, Instagram, or an individual artist’s website. While I am adamant about always noting the owner/creator of every image with links back to the original image source within each post, full transparency is important: I do not pay for nor do I always ask for permission to use a particular image belonging to another person. Being that my blog is for personal use, with readership extending to only a smattering of family and friends, images are included exclusively for my own enjoyment and to provide a visual companion for what I write. It is never my intention to infringe on the copyright of any photographer or artist whose work appears here.

If you are the owner of an image used on this site and wish for it to be taken down, please contact me and it will be removed immediately, no questions asked and with my sincerest apologies.
