Life Lately


A quick shot of Friday's afternoon pick up at the store.  High Street Market is crazy busy, fulfilling holiday orders (and will continue to do so until 12/23-- our LAST OFFICIAL SHIPPING DAY of the season).


 Winter Wonderland.  We received a bunch of new snow here in Philadelphia.  It's been pretty magical.  This picture was taken from the car, on a road near our home (I wasn't driving).  Nothing like fresh snow to get you in the Christmas spirit.  :)


 I decorated the new carriage house with simple (cheap) green wreaths and huge red bows.  It took me about 5 minutes to hang these and they make me SO HAPPY every single time I pull my car up.



The cozy living room sofa --  my favorite spot in the house.
(cable knit pillows are from our store, and available here)


an unstyled instagram pic of our Christmas tree (which clearly needs a star topper!)


Also, last week, William experienced his first snow!  We only had him out there for about two minutes, but obviously he was not impressed.  :)


William is about three months old now.  And, life as a new mom is really good.  Very different, but wonderful all the same.  Besides the NO SLEEP (and I like writing it in all capitals, because it's THAT MAJOR)... besides the NO SLEEP, the biggest change in my life is the amount of smiling I do every day.  Seriously.  I don't think I've ever smiled so much.  So much smiling that my cheeks hurt, that's how much smiling.  :) :)  :) William makes me really happy.  When your child smiles at you, your heart literally melts into a gob of warm mushiness.  And, you will do anything to get him to do it again.  Sing silly songs, make funny faces, and give that wet mouth a million kisses.  I will do anything for a good, gummy, toothless smile.  It's the best thing in the world.  :)

Oh. And, the other biggest change in my life-- I'm constantly dealing with pee, poop, puke, and the smell of spoiled milk.  Also, LAUNDRY.  Lots of laundry.

Here are some recent pictures of my loveable, smiley, precious little poop machine.  :)




Love this tiny bear

And, one more picture...

Such a lovely post! Thanks for the smiles! Can't believe the difference between Philly and DC! We're running around in shorts with umbrellas. Freaky high temps and lots of rain.
