The Week that Was

Our week in pictures, and a few words to go with them.

Monday started off a little rough

And then it got a little rougher.  Fevers, sore throats, sleepless nights…

One by one they all went down, and we spent the better part of our week sprawled out in the living room.

On a happier note, I got a new pair of jeans.  I’m a sucker for a cuff

The sewing room was a happy place this week

The bobbins are no longer strewn about the sewing room.  Hello pretty bobbins

Morningtime sleepy eyes and rumpled hair

Behold the magic of the cardboard box

The stuff that childhood is built on

My thought for the week:  We should tell each other more stories.  Our own stories. The funny ones with a strand of wisdom stretching through it.  The colorful tales where facts may take a backseat to a good narrative.  The tender stories that honor a lost loved one.  To watch the look of anticipation on your childrens’ faces as you lean forward and say, “When I was little…”

    You rock those skinnies!!
    Your sewing room always makes me envious. In a good way. And I always itch to sew whenever I see your creations. I seriously think you could start you own children’s clothing line and become a millionaire. Your style is just SO awesome.
    So sorry you had a rough week with sickness. That is just hard, and exhausting… Hope you are all on the mend! xoxo
