it's been awhile!

Hi there strangers, it's been awhile! In case you worried, I've been alive + thriving. It's just that once in awhile, my to-do list overwhelms my creative spirit and I must take a break and accomplish things...Like scrub the grout in the shower and go to work and take care of my sick boy. At least now that my spring cleaning fever has passed (and my house has returned to a more typical state of chaos), I hope to be around here a bit more! During my week off (off from blogging at least), the loveliest package arrived at my door. I squealed with delight when I opened it to find one of Marta's famous mini diaries. I've always wanted to get my hands on one--and now I have my very own, in the most summery colors, just in time for summer! I just quickly filled out the first page and already I am thrilled by the idea of pausing to notice the simple, daily gifts for our senses.
Hoping you have a wonderful weekend in store!! What are your plans for mom's day??

P.S. I just hung curtains in Graham's room (a project that had been on my to-do list for 10 months!!) It felt so awesome. I will share pics soon!

Your handwriting should be a font! What a fun little diary, cute idea!

I loved this idea so much I bought 2! One for me and 1 for a friend - she's a new mom & may not have time to write a whole lot, so I thought this would be great!
