I've been sorting through photos and keep finding these images of Elin when she was a bit younger. They grow so fast but I'm grateful for technology that lets us capture moments to hold onto just a little bit longer.

Last week I was talking with an elderly woman at the store. She remarked on this very topic and suggested I take lots of photos because before I know it they will both be grown and on their own.

If she could have only seen that my camera roll is 95% 👦🏼👧🏼

Thanks for the wonderful mail, @clarycollection!

Looking through old photos and remembering how much smaller the kids were, not so long ago. We spent a few days in this large cabin in the woods built by an architect for his family that sat in front of a stream. Every morning we woke to the sound of running water and the sight of light filtering mist in the dense trees. I think it's time again to make more memories like this.

#babyElinP from a few months ago, boy am I glad spring is here.

Promising buds, signs of spring.
Also I wanted to announce the winner of last week's #giveaway (two rows down 👇🏼) with @theposterclub is @kvngco, congrats!

At home our bedroom has a new reading corner with this oversized Neva chair from @sixpennyhome. It's become my own personal quiet space and most afternoons when Elin naps I only want to be here with a good read and a cup of tea.

Le Corbusier mural from 1938 in a villa on the French Riviera, spotted the other night at the bookstore.

My future woman, singing happily to her toy mice. Today on #internationalwomensday I feel grateful. Grateful for the women before me who sacrificed so I could enjoy certain freedoms and privileges. However I do not want to mistake gratefulness for complacency, there is still progress to be made not only for our gender but humankind. I also think of the many women on the planet who right now do not have equal or even basic rights as citizens, the mothers who don't have access to clean water or adequate food. As I made lunch for Elin today, I thought of the moms whose love for her child is equal to my own, yet cannot soothe their aching stomachs. The women who have had to abandon all that they've known to seek refuge in a foreign land only to endure prejudism, racism and being marginalized. I hope that we continue to progress so that by the time my girl is a woman, the 🌎 is a more loving and accepting place towards not only her gender, but all humans.
