Santa Baby

This little guy celebrated his first birthday recently with so much joy, these first few quiet days seem like so long ago.  I waited to share because there’s something about this time of year that makes the joy of newborns so much sweeter.  💙 (Hey J, have you finished that blanket yet? ☝🏻 Sorry, I…

Summer and City

I’m interrupting this regularly not-scheduled November Arctic Blast to bring to you a summer day and a sweet city baby who wanted to share her Starbucks with me.  (It was just water, of course, but 100% sweet). Our son was 5 when we officially left the city and moved into our first and only suburban…

Gratitude

Over the weekend I helped my 10 y/o son clean out his clothing…
