Hope you all had a great holiday! We were in Maine for Christmas through New Year's. It was the first time in almost a year where we spent a full week away from New York. So nice to get away, and I fall even more in love with Maine every time we go up there. Juniper flew for the first time (she was a superstar traveler, phew!) and we got to spend a lot of quality time with Dan's large family. The other big news from the week —Juniper is starting to crawl! I am not ready for a baby on the move :) And Dan and I went out to the movies for the first time in almost a year, which was a real treat.
I wanted to say a big thank you to all of you for following along here, especially as the blog continues to evolve with my life and what's interesting me in the moment. I started this blog three years ago (crazy!). Now more than ever, I feel like I'm stretched in so many directions, but it always feels so good to come back to this space. I don't have specific resolutions, but I do hope to create more of a healthy routine in my days. I'm still working on figuring out a rhythm in my life being a full-time mama who freelances and co-owns a webshop and likes to craft and misses yoga and can never keep up with cleaning the apartment or grocery shopping and would love to finish reading a book one day soon. How do other mamas do it! But I feel so incredibly thankful and lucky for this amazing baby girl in my life.
I have a couple big posts I've been working on writing up. Coming up in the next week, I'll be sharing Juniper's handmade birth announcements as well as my thoughts on babywearing and what carriers have worked well for me. Wishing you all a happy new year!
ps. I found Juniper's New Year's hat from the Portland shop Ferdinand (super cute shop — definitely recommend stopping by if you find yourself in Portland.) Ferdinand also has an Etsy shop. I went home with one of their squirrel shirts.
