This way…

Aisland will be 6 months at the end of  June and I can safely say that things have calmed down a lot. Even though she’s about to embark on eating mushy vegetables (I tried giving her rice cereal via spoon last month and she didn’t go for it so she’s still taking it through a bottle) and the thought of planning an entirely new diet for her kinda freaks me out, my brain has chilled out a lot.

I recently made some life-changing decisions that I believe will help our whole family out.  I’ll be home full-time now and not have to worry about a spastic retail schedule that screws up our household routine. I’m looking forward to what’s ahead for us.

I have a lot more to share but now it’s time to throw some rice stuff into a bottle…

Favorite Places: House of Jules

Joshua’s parents live about an hour from us on a nice chunk of land in the cutest little house. As I said before, Joshua’s mom is the coolest. She has the cutest stuff and every time I go over there it’s like I’ve entered a Museum of  Oohs and Aahs. Julie and Jim have made their home so cozy and comfortable, I always end up taking a nap there. And when Aisland gets held by her Oma Julie, she immediately passes out. THANK YOU OMA.

Shots of Happiness Thursday

5 things making me happy right now, featuring: a panda car, the truth, pretty Francoise Hardy, pink flowers in blue vases, and petting tiny horses.

We’re mini road trippin’ it up to Joshua’s parent’s house today. His mom has a craft room I could just bury myself in. She is the coolest because she can sew anything and she collects elephants and loves Buddhas and peace signs and astrology books and has a picture of Janis Joplin in her bathroom. She deserves an Ode post!

Favorite Places: Freedom Park

It was a perfect day at the park. I cannot wait until the trees start blooming though! Aisland was awake in her stroller cocoon (Oh Fair Skin Beb! How we must cover thee always!) as we walked around the lake but fell asleep as we made our way through the greenway to East Blvd. We sat outside Caribou as Joshua debated with himself about buying that damn condo in SouthPark we know belongs to us (it’s been on the market for more than a year and it has everything we need and want).

I’m so glad Aisland loves stroller adventures because there will be plenty of those with Mommy as the weather gets better! Staying inside 5 days a week is taking its toll on me…I need more Vitamin D!!

Sometimes It’s Surreal

Ultimate DIY.

We made a baby and sometimes I can’t get over that. The first time we went out without Aisland we just stopped and took a moment to soak in the reality that we created a person.  It’s an amazing feeling and it makes me like him more.  <3

My Little Fawn a la Brooke

I'm Brooke. I like pictures of brick walls and shop windows. I am most often seen making inappropriate comments, fondling books, and cooing at cute stuff. If you constantly play with your phone while in my presence, there is a good chance I will despise you greatly. More
