Have I Told You Lately....

that I'm taking a sewing class? I LOVE it. A lot. And I have this lovely lady + her adorable littles to thank.

what I'm being for Halloween?

that I'm feeling fancy?


that she's back? She's all things magic + lovely + perfectly written, and I couldn't be happier to read her posts again. truly, truly.


that when Brian + I were dating, I wore pretty flowers in my hair + pinned to my jackets? And then his whole family made fun of me + I kind of became a hippie, so I stopped. I'm thinking it's time to start rockin' the big wild rose.



that I have the cutest, cuddliest, chubbiest baby in the world? We are so happy to have him.

ps I realize this photo looks kind of awful, but I promise I only left him in there as long as it takes to go to the bathroom(and take a picture, of course). Oh, and the laundry is clean. I think.

Yes, I *secretly* visit your blog sometimes. And I just want to say that Brian's ENTIRE family didn't make fun of your gigantic flower accessories. I'M part of the family and I admired the fact that you were confident enough to do that. I should start adorning myself in big flowers while I do dishes and clean the house. I think it would literally brighten my days. Like painting my toenails bright pink even though it makes me feel a little awkward and uncomfortable but still makes me smile every time I notice them. Ohhh! Now I'm missing you!

I guess what I'm trying to say is... let's bring them back and start a faux flower revolution! Count me in!

EMILY! I was actually going to ask you if you knew Katie + her adorable family. I figured there couldn't be too many Mormons kicking it in Brooklyn, and your paths may have crossed at some point!

I miss you, too! Are you planning any Utah trips this summer? How are the wedding dresses coming along? I'm still super jealous of your personal assistant, btw!

Oh, I'm so happy you found me!
