Green Floral Plumes in the darkest brown agate,
a slab I could not resist making my own...
Diaper bag I made for myself
Big enough to be a weekender...
thinking of making one for the Leather Shop...
Beautiful stones from a sweet tiny shop in Stillwater, MN...
Our trip was transformative and important.
Orion got to spend a lot of time with two doting grandparents, an Auntie who loves him so much and an Uncle he charmed.
There were friends that came to visit, trips out of the city and 60 miles logged on a bike around the Grand Rounds and River trails.
Baby Boy turned 6 months (more on that later)
Bickering and forgiveness peppered the time in just the right amounts
Orion proved to be like a Goodwill Ambassador representing little souls under the age of one year, showing the general populace that they can be pretty rad.
swore a lot
reached my monthly goal weight loss in spite of dulce de leche cheesecake and enchiladas that merited seconds
decided that we have to move to Minneapolis
went shopping at Nordstrom Rack and came out a winner (!!)
missed Schmilly in a gratifying way
started O on fruits and veggies
Spent time with Jeremy and Sabin, thank goodness
stayed in pjs until noon more days than not
had a night out at the Dakota with my Poppy
gathered little bits of my fragmented-ness to bring home whole
smelled the summer drying out Midwest-style.
It was awesome.
I am opening the shops again:
