I threw a baby shower for one of my favorite friends over the weekend (that's her belly pictured above). I remember how just a year ago, I too was being showered with so many baby gifts- and feeling so loved by family and friends. I love that so many people come together to celebrate motherhood- because it truly is an amazing thing.
I am having a horrible time removing songs like "baby you're a firework" and "it's a quarter after one, I'm all alone, and I need you now" from my head. It's driving me insane. But, I found the perfect antidote thanks to my Mix Club:
Watch the above video for Miike Snow's "Animal" a fun, catchy, can't-leave-head in a GOOD way song. Yes!
Do you know that feeling when you're reading a book that you cannot wait to sit down with at the end of the day? That's how I'm feeling about Dodie Smith's book "I Capture The Castle." I absolutely adore the way the narrator, a young 17-year old Cassandra, voices the story. Her witty sense of humor has me laughing out loud at times.
Anyone else read it?
(And, I know there's a film adaptation of the book, which I will gladly be watching once I am done with the book.)
This is the quilt my mom handmade for my baby boy. I selected the design and fabric, and she made it- isn't it beautiful?
She had to hand-stitch each and every triangle that make up the circles. His quilt is something that me and Gus will cherish forever.
And, if you can't tell, Gus absolutely loves it.
