Writing from a junk yard today! We've been packing for our move - staying up way too late - trying to not skip showers - and generally trying to keep it together (all while listening to Icelandic music. If you have any recommendations, do tell! :).
In the meantime, some Love Announcements. :) It's been awhile.
-Brooke White & Summer Bellessa from The Girls With Glasses Show just made this darling video on ulive and named our blog as one of their TOP FIVE FAVORITE BLOGS! Holy smokes. This made us smile so big. The other (4) bloggers they chose make me awe struck as they are so talented: Oh Happy Day, The House That Lars Built, Small Fry, and Little Miss Mama.
-One of my dear friends gave me a little Christmas gift. It was a bag full of several of her "favorite things for one of her favorite women." I just thought the idea was so, so darling and thoughtful. She included (2) pairs of socks from The Gap. She *always* has cute socks and now I know where she gets them. :)
-Erin from Reading My Tea Leaves posted about these wool blankets from Prince Edward Island and said they were her favorite blankets (and to trust her on that.) Oh my, she has me sold. They're on my wish list. And, so is Prince Edward Island for that matter!
-I really, really loved reading my friend's post, "Saying Good-bye to My Design Mom Column." It was so heartwarming to read - especially as all of us here in Brooklyn got to see her take on that job and wow us all with her beautiful posts. Koseli (on the left) can now be found at her own wonderful blog, Original Archiving Co. She's one of the most amazing women I know and her writing just goes straight to your soul.
-OK, I've always loved the iconic Stendig calendar and had one for years. But the truth? It's not that practical as you can't write on it. But THIS ONE. It's perfection. Download it FOR FREE (yes!) from House That Lars Built. Thanks, Brittany!
Love and Happy Weekend,
P.S. I've been really wanting to write more about why we're not adopting right now...and what things have been like on the baby front since our last IVF. It's hard to write because I think it's hard for many to understand. I need to find the words and I hope to get to it soon. We've just been so, so busy getting ready for this move. Love all you readers and thanks from the bottom of our hearts for connecting with us here.
