Allison Sanzon  Wife + Mama + Knitter + Homebody 🌿➰🏠

Plant shopping and flower picking 🌿🌼 She picked out her very own succulent, and mama's going to pot + grow it for her. πŸ’•

Playtime is rough. 😴This girl is doing so many new things. She loves to feed mama her food and can say, "Hiiii, kitty!" She called Marcos "daddy" the other day, gives hugs and kisses, and always has her red wagon full of toys trailing behind her. I can't believe she's basically a little girl now, not a baby anymore. πŸ’•

Hummingbird yarn for my #gaufresocks. πŸ‘ŒπŸ»

Swatching a summer romper for Cece while I not-so patiently wait until tomorrow when I can pop in the yarn shop and pick out yarn for my #gaufresocks test knit for @sister.mountain. Isn't this the most perfect shade of green? πŸ‘ŒπŸ»

Slowly becoming a crazy plant lady 🌿🌷🌱🌼🌡🌻

She's always on the go these days πŸš™πŸ’•I'm trying to hold her and snuggle her as much as possible, but she would definitely rather be on the move πŸ’ƒπŸ»

"Speak to your children as if they are the wisest, kindest, most beautiful and magical humans on earth, for what they believe is what they will become." I've been thinking about this quote a lot lately, about all of the things I want to say and teach to Cece as she grows from a girl into a woman. (I'm not sure where this quote is from, so if anyone knows please let me know!) πŸ’•πŸ’

Sunday morning slipper knitting. How's your Sunday looking? 🌞🌿

A few of my favorite things, lately - pretty embroidery threads, my gold bird scissors, black + gold gel pens that write perfectly, my first attempt at a bullet journal, and my big notebook that holds all my project notes and ideas (and very very bad sketches of embroidery patterns, because I can't draw at. all.) I was inspired by @sister.mountain and her beautiful sketchbook full of knitting notes and gauge swatches when I started mine not too long ago. I can only hope mine turns out as lovely as hers. 🌿🌿

This girl has been taking three naps a day lately, so not only am I able to work in a little time for myself, I also get to steal a few extra snuggles from her. ✨✨

Twinning with my girl today. 🌞🌷🌿

I rearranged our bedroom today while Cece slept and played. πŸ’ I've been working on a little something behind the scenes lately, but I've also been feeling anxious and not at all at peace lately. I'm feeling like a step back is needed, so I can refocus myself and find a little peace and happiness again. I love being a mama + wife, but I also feel like so much of myself was pushed aside when I became those things and I have to find my balance again. I'll certainly still be around, but likely not as much. I'll still be working on my knitting and embroidery (a new love), and working towards sharing my project soon. Thanks for following along on my journey, friends - if you have any tips or advice about anxiety and finding your peace as a mama, please feel free to share ✌🏻🌼🌷
