Simple Pleasures...


Just a few things around here that are making me smile.
•My mother-in-law bakes the most delicious treats and she's always giving us plates full of cookies and cakes to bring home. The perfect afternoon snack to enjoy with a cup of tea.
•Holiday bits and pieces are filling our home. I found this sweet felt mistletoe at the Seattle airport on our way home from Florida. Linus likes to stand under it and yell at me to come kiss him. I think I might just keep it up there forever.
•Scarves + mittens + boots + sweaters + socks+ toques!!!
•I finally consider my hair to be super long!
•Hanging out in Linus' room. He's been carrying around that photo of Jedi all morning...
•The way the sun light fills my kitchen every morning.
•Watching Marcel the shell with shoes on. Oh I love that little guy...
•Linus asking me to go to swimming lessons... in the bath.
 •Looking through the photos of our trip to Disney World. 
May you all find joy in the simple pleasures of today.

Simple Pleasures

 Just a few things around here that are bringing me joy.


• Home made smoothies made with Greek yogurt, coconut water, and frozen berries. So nummy!
• Practicing my throwing at pottery class.
• The ripening berries all over our neighborhood. 
• Eating lunch in the park with my guys.
• The overwhelming number of paint color choices. What color should I choose for the master          bedroom? kitchen? bathrooms? craft room!?
• My Emersonmade dress and my pretty blue ring from Club Monaco. Maybe I'll paint the craft room the same colour as this stone...
• Jedi trying on Sadie's new hair band.
• Sadie baby following me around the house. Yesterday she put Jedi's undies on her head and started to laugh and squeal. She's a little jokester.
• Daydreaming about all the exciting things we have to look forward to... Our new house, folk fest, a Mediterranean cruise with my family, starting my photography classes this fall, seeing Bon Iver and Other Lives in Portland, and meeting the newest addition to our family- sweet little Jilly bean who is being adopted by my aunt and uncle from China! Yes, she already has a nickname and we haven't even met her yet. They/we have been waiting 5 years for this.
• Watching this "bicycle Rush Hour" clip from the Netherlands. Evan showed me this video a few weeks ago. It's incredible!



Wishing you all a very happy Monday!

Simple Pleasures

 Just a few things around here that are bringing me joy. Many simple pleasures.

•My childhood friend and talented photojournalist Ben Nelms recently introduced me to the work of photographer Christopher Anderson. I've been swooning over his book project entitled 'Son'. So beautiful and inspiring.
•My pretty new stamp from NoteTrunk. I'll be using it on my fabric backed business cards from now on.
• All the lovely fabric I have to choose from!
• Fresh and sweet strawberries. My boy has been asking for them everyday. I'm so glad he enjoys eating all sorts of fruits and vegetables. How did I get so lucky?
•My tulips and daffodils are finally beginning to sprout! It's magical and it makes me jump for joy whenever I'm outside. My neighbors must think I've lost my marbles...•I'm really enjoying Tina Fey's new book Bossypants. I keep thinking back to various quotes and start giggling quietly to myself. My family probably thinks I've lost my marbles too...•Finding Linus' toys set up in the corners of our home. •This lovable shmoo.

•And this video makes me oh so happy. The colors... The movement... The music...the faces! Enjoy.
