About

Welcome to Falafel and The Bee

me My name is Michelle. I am a wife to the same man for 18 years and counting. We both grew up in NJ, but moved out to Washington about 16 years ago, and have 2 two lovely and lively girls….

{not their real names}

prpgirlm I started calling our 8 year old Falafel (or even Falafel berry) when she was born and it stuck. I have no idea what I was thinking when it came out of my mouth, but I was probably hungry~heh.

njbeachgirlm My husband has always called our oldest The Bee since forever ago. She is a feisty14 year old redhead. ‘Nuff said.

I sew, create, thrift, recycle, parent, problem solve, clean, walk, photograph, and nurture. Five years ago I was diagnosed with a serious wheat allergy, so I do occasionally share Gluten-free recipes as well.

Oh yum. These are my favorites.

Mostly, this space is my online visual diary. I wish to give you a peek into our lives (where I highlight the positive) and ask you to join us on our journey through parenthood, creatively… And maybe learn some new fun projects, together, along the way.

Please feel free to look around. And as always, I welcome your comments!

Thanks for stopping by.

    Hi Michelle,

    I was notified through a pingback on our website (Friends of the Farms) that you mentioned Harvest Fair on your blog. I am on the board of Friends of the Farms, the group that puts on the fair, and helps preserve and enhance local farming. I thought the pictures you took of the fair were terrific. I was wondering if you would allow us to have some of them for possible use on our website, facebook, etc. I am the one who gathers photos for Friends of the Farms! Great pictures speak a thousand words.

    Thanks.

    Bobbie

  2. Hi Michelle… I’ve had your blog saved in my favourites under ‘blogs to read’ for a while now… over the last couple of days I have read your entire blog right back to the beginning… and I have to say its fabulous! I love the way you write, and your sense of humour – I love that you capture all those beautiful moments of everyday life, and your girls are just gorgeous :)

    Anyway enough gushing… just wanted to tell you how enjoyable I found your blog – I am not a sewer (I have a sewing machine sitting dormant next to me as we speak) but you’ve inspired me – I may actually get it out and make something soon! Lol

    Thanks again for the sunshine you’ve added to my day(s)

    Kristin :)
