this girl always has the cutest style. it used to be mixing as many patterns as possible, with several layers at a time. but she is quite the editor now has a really cute look. she informed me today that she was ready to get rid of her tutus. i nearly cried. no longer a baby…
this has been my standard breakfast lately: granola, blueberries, bananas & milk. and coffee. duh.
wanna know the best part of closing my shop? the free time. ha! what is free time? i have yet to have more of that, but i do have more mind space than i ever expected. i can go through a day without stressing about sales, or prepping work for employees. i can sit with my kids and, get this, think about my kids! it really has been wonderful. and even though there has been no extra free time, i am squeezing in fun crafting for the blog.
gracie went away last weekend for church camp, so we got to have special time with the 2 youngest for a bit. we went to a new coffee shop downtown, and i thought seriously about moving in. and building a new home.
i am prepping things for blog posts and the upcoming stitch market. i am kind of going in a crafter overload, and all over the place. i have so many ideas that are flying out of my head, i can’t do them all at once. although clearly, i’m trying to!
my favorite part of instagram? catching the moments that don’t last. because when i do capture them, they are great reminders during the hard times, the bickering, the yelling, the slamming doors. these 2 were playing so well together – lily’s legs are actually wrapped around silas as they colored on the same page of her book.
while gracie was away at camp, lily went to a sleepover, and sean took silas out for a date, i spent a couple hours (never happened before) slowly getting ready for a girls’ night with some high school friends.
lily loves to sew. really any kind of crafting makes her happy. she is my little homemaker-in-training. she made her own bible bag (with my guidance), and it is awesome!
poor silas had to get 2 teeth extracted this week. and may have to get 2 more next week – yikes! thankfully, he was a champ and pretty clueless through the whole procedure. he never even knew he got shots (see behind the assistant’s back?)!
he was a little extra snuggly and needy through the rest of the day. i was ok with that.
ok, apparently we skipped winter altogether this year and have jumped full on into spring. our roses which we just cut back a couple months ago are in full force!
we just chose our vendors for the upcoming stitch market, and i am really happy with our new bunch! and once again, i love the fliers rooted in paper designed.
what’s on tap for you this weekend? i have a nasty cold i’m trying hard to kick. i am helping out with our school’s big yearly fundraiser this saturday so i need to be feeling better now! we’re also expecting highs in the mid 80’s this weekend, so i have a feeling the beach may be on tap, too!
