Featured on Apartment Therapy!

As if seeing my words on Design*Sponge earlier this week wasn't cool enough, Apartment Therapy loved Cadence's nursery and so sweetly shared it online this week. Other than a snarky commenter going on about how I didn't put enough color or shapes in it for his development (whatevs) people seemed to really like it. Also, can I go on an anti-mommy-craziness tangent for a second and just say that children throughout the history of the world, and still in most countries less spoiled than our own, don't have fancy nurseries full of brightly painted colors and baby einstein videos and scientific toys for their dendritic development and they all have turned out just fine. Moms have enough stuff to worry about and enough to take care of already without other women coming up with more things that they are doing wrong according to nothing. Can't we just fucking support each other without always having to tell someone where they are coming up short? Guess what snarky dendritic development lady? Cadence sleeps on his belly too. And he's formula fed. And women in Cambodia let their babies play with goats. And somehow everyone survives. There's not one right way. *steps off soapbox* 

Anyways.... Cadence's room is the only room in our house that's 100% completed and it has so much meaning and thought put into each detail that it makes me immediately happy whenever I'm in there. It's calming. It's Cadence's favorite room too (even with it's atrocious lack of bright colors, ha) and he instantly mellows when we walk into it and loves to look at the prints on the big blue wall and at the little moon mobile that I made. 

 I'm so honored that Apartment Therapy chose to share it and I hope it inspires other moms to be to think outside the box with the design of their nurseries. Thanks AT!

Helena and Dave love each other and they love their city. And what's not to love? We were so excited when they asked us to come up to meet them in Chicago for a snowy photo adventure.

Robyn & Bill's Playful Engagement at Casa Feliz

Like a stream that meets a boulder halfway through the wood 
Who can say if I've been changed for the better? 
I do believe I have been changed for the better. 
But because I knew you...
I have been changed for good.

(I couldn't resist these lyrics since Robyn is a total Idina Menzel look-a-like!)

Moment Junkie...

posted on: Friday, March 1, 2013

This moment, at the very end of the song, where they both know the dance is ending. This hug. That expression. The tension in her eyebrows and in her arms. She used to be able to hold his whole body in the arms that now just wrap around his shoulders. And then nothing but smiles, of course, because it’s a happy day. But still… this one moment where time stood still, a mother and her son. Lord help me, now I’m crying again. I’ll just leave you with the photo and be done with it.

Collect Moments, Not Things. xo
