happy spring, lovely readers. i hope you are enjoying the weather. the carolina blue skies are as pretty as ever. life has been a complete marathon lately- but in a pretty great way. i have missed you all though and plan to be on here a lot more. you all bring so much joy to be life and i am thankful. so many exciting things are coming soon to this space. stay tuned and i hope you have all been well
+ north carolina is simply beautiful... i know i have mentioned this several times before... but it really is. we have been enjoying walks and trips to the park. last night we took a family walk around the fourth ward in uptown charlotte, which is full of old victorian homes. the blooms everywhere are so breath-taking in charlotte.
+ parks is now walking (more than crawling) and is just so much fun. he just started say, 'uh uh ohhh' yesterday morning and most of the time, he is both funny and sweet. the boy has a sense of humor (which i love and we laugh together all day) ... yet he is so tender.
+ i have been loving musical group, the head and the heart, a lot lately. we went to their concert with really good friends last weekend and i love them even more now.
+ i love my new job (so much.) but i am working (almost) every hour of the day. again, it's so worth it. however, this week we are traveling to alabama for my cousin's wedding and then parks and i are going to ohio to my hometown/my parent's house for a week. i have so many 'me' books packed and am excited to see loved ones, blog, take in the serenity of 'life in the country.' plus, my mom is always the best help with the baby ... i can't wait. i really feel like i need this right now.
+ i have been working on balance still and hope to write an update soon
+ there are so many new things that i am loving... planning to share those as well soon (so many blog ideas... so little time! ... but again, hoping to dedicate more time very soon)
florals ... i am obsessed.
mommy + me bomber jackets (i didn't buy these... but how cute are they?)
saturday, my husband had a 'man day' with his friends and i worked/played with my boy.
so yesterday afternoon i took some 'me time' for a few hours. i decided to do a kid's consignment shop (the best!!... i got such cute things for $40 total. i mean, a huge bag + three new pairs of shoes- including a pair of black converse that look like new) then i grabbed a coffee at barnes and noble and browsed the books and just sat there and read (glorious) ... followed by some mingling around the gap. ps: more on that cute cognac tote shown soon but it's the best. the #bossbag by bella tunno
a photo from our walk + trip to the park last night
parks loves, loves his jellycat animals (i have been browsing options for the easter bunny to maybe bring!) this bear is a favorite... he loves to hug, squeal with excitement, kiss, and push him around on chairs all.day.long
-a quiet moment on saturday afternoon-
the kinfolk table cookbook is so beautiful
also, i have been leaning towards more of a plant-based diet lately
