Some Happys.

This is the worst I've ever been about blogging. If you care, I'm sorry. I have missed it. We've just had a lot of big stuff going on, which I will talk about later. But in the meantime, I am anxious to get back to my blogging routine. Here are some sweet spots in our life lately. 

This bunting I made for our kitchen from (mostly) vintage sheet scraps:

Tessa and Sawyer visiting the new Cumberland Park. First, I love this picture so much because it is classic Sawyer and Tessa. They are such lovebirds, it's nuts. They both talk about each other all the time, and are super kissy and huggy and hold hands most everywhere they walk together. They have shared more colds and giggles than any two kids I know.

Fresh flowers. I've loved having fresh flowers around the house this spring. And they're so cheap at Trader Joe's!

Our cairn terrier, Garp, got a haircut and looks so handsome.

This print. I had to order it straightaway because it suits Tessa with her wild hair and free spirit and aversion to rules. 

Last but not least, yesterday I put rails on Tessa's twin bed (which was actually my bed when I was little), and she slept for the first time in her big girl bed last night! She did great and slept from 7:30 p.m. to 8 a.m., but she was totally exhausted so it'll be interesting to see how she does on a night when she fights going to sleep (which happens about every other night). Speaking of sleeping until 8 a.m., she has been doing it every single day for over a week. And she's not even sick. I am in ecstasy about it.

I also really enjoyed reading this book and this book recently. I was reluctant to break out the Kindle I got for Christmas because I love real books so much, but I've really liked it! Especially because it's not backlit like computers and doesn't hurt my eyes. 

Hope y'all are doing great! Be back soon. 


  1. Her bed looks uber comfy! Can I come snuggle with her sometime? :) Love that bedskirt too btw...I know you probably crafted that beautiful thing yourself.

  2. i care and missed your blogging but am happy to see that all is well. so funny, our little ones are all at that big girl bed moment. seems like it's going around in the baby blog world...

  3. I care! I adore your blog! And that print. And that shot of the babes!

  4. I care too. :) This bed is wonderful, that's why your girlie wants to sleep and sleep and sleep. It looks dreamy.
    Also, I had picked up that Jodi Picoult book~ I love all of her books~ and as soon as I finish Bean Trees, which is a great read, by the way, I'll dive into Sing You Home.

  5. So, I went and bought that print because I loved it so. I always call Haeden my wild child! Did you have issues with the seller? I ordered it May 18th and am still waiting! I messaged her and got a response with an excuse and she said she was expediting it the next day with a few cards to apologize. I told her it was fine, I was just worried because it had been 10 business days already. Well, it's been even longer and still nothing. I emailed her again on Friday just to let her know I didn't receive anything and still have had no response. Plus, I asked for custom colors and her opinion and she never even responded to my questions. I'm so bummed because I love that print and already paid and still nothing!!! Never had this happen before!

    Sorry for the vent, I just had to get that out!
