As new parents, my husband and I could have never imagined how much walking we would do. We walk so much that we have dented the sidewalks. We are the tired looking couple that is up before everyone else in the world, just walking up and down and back and forth across the neighborhood, getting our daughter to sleep. The morning ritual has become second nature for us, on days that our daughter sleeps until 6 a.m. I am elated, it’s practically sleeping in! But most days start at 5 a.m. and those are rough, especially since I am still not drinking coffee (oh, how I miss coffee so much!). A beautiful thing started to happen on our walks, it seems spring arrived (finally) and all of our neighbors gardens exploded with blooms-peonies have been everywhere, if I wasn’t trolling the neighborhood so much, I may not have been privy to such gorgeousness.
I just wanted to stop by and let you all know how much I miss you. We (we as me and my partner!) have been working on site tweaks and coming up with new, beautiful + useful content (soon my friends, soon). Pre-baby I would have stayed up for days/nights on end to get everything done, post-baby I am happy to add ‘chew my food’ or ‘wash my hair’ to the list of things that may actually get done. I am in awe of every mama that seems to be accomplishing anything. I thought I would share some of the things I have been able to do…
I am almost finished with a book (a whole book!) I can’t believe it but I was able to carve out some late night time for myself. This is the book I am reading, it is a sequel to this book which I adored. I’ll be sure to write a review when I am finished.
I found a walker for Elle that wasn’t hideous and she is enjoying it immensely (even though she hasn’t figured out yet that she can use it to ‘walk’). If you are looking for one that is not a mess, I highly recommend this one. Speaking of mess, Elle started eating solids and the walker also doubles as a high chair (well, a dining area) and it collapses so it can be easily stored in the closet when not in use.
I wanted a pair of cute slip on sneakers (tying shoes is too much effort these days) and I found the cutest pair here of all places.
I dropped my phone and crushed it, so after months of using a crushed (but functioning) phone we finally made time to pick up a new one. I got this one and now feel complete.
I’ll be popping in again soon!
P.S. Why yes, I can tell you where you can get that beautiful font, just stop by here.
