It's beginning to rain

Its almost my favorite time of year. 
today was full of fall behavior. 
I saw so many northface jackets at costco, it's not even funny. 
Sometimes northwest people don't even know what to do with themselves but drink pumpkin spice lattes, and wear fleece. 
But really for real, I am glad fall is arriving. 
The air gets better and life feels cozy and crisp.
& today I proved it by wearing boots. 

But I'll break it down a little further:
blazer: thrifted (little boys section)
(snookie print) Leopard print shirt: Liz Claiborn
necklace: homemade (by SARAH!)
shorts: thrifted Gap
tights: jcpenny (50 freakin c-iz-ents) 
bag: steve madden tjmaxx

a home is what we make with you

"Meet me by the river. 
Where the ancient song is sung.
 I will show you the deliverer.
 He will be your home."

Just checking in...

Hey everyone. 
-Raise your hand if you've been really busy this week chasing more toddlers than usual. 
-Raise your hand if you bought a leather vest the other day. (sans eagles,flags, & fringe, mind you)
-Raise your hand if you had the best lunch ever today. bruschetta, anyone?
-Raise your hand if lately, taking pictures is not your favorite. (bad timing, considering the rarity of reunions and the fact that fam is all around & I should be trying harder to document it.)
you gotta love the love. and there's love and baby giggles and pranks, all up in this place, and that's really fantastic.

"lets just chill for a second"

home day. all day. 
Family feels good. Sar, Dan, little brother & I took Jakey to the river. 
Jakey says hi: 

He's saying "totally, cheese". He's 3. 
and Sarah braided my hair, so I looked like Laura Ingalls Wilder most of the day. EEEK.

quick trim redo

So I have this vintage lamp. & it hangs on the wall. 
problem: it had ugly old dirty cotton pom pom's
so I reached for my vintage trim supply to replace the fugly pom's. 
and I painted the chord white, because white looks better. 

so there. problem solved.

suited up

Donuts really helped my day. 
& so did Pandora (which included this song...)
and I did what I like to do:
-jump into my paint jumpsuit
-make something in my paint jumpsuit

wonderful things

this gelato

this song.

piano playing, talkative toddlers with gerber baby faces.
watching old home videos at the end of the day
remembering the days when your dad wore a cowboy hat on a regular basis, and then finding proof
waking up to crepes. 
this mug from starbucks that made me feel like painting
breakin' it down at the grocery store
seeing BOB freaking DYLAN
cookies & giggles on the rooftop
coming home to this
robots that are as tall as you are
french cafe's 
vintage hats and typewriters 
record hunting
this one is NOT wonderful. Actually, this is upsetting. 
meeting shawn kemp in the bathroom
giant things. made for the sake of being giant.
